    Trump's military parade will cost nearly as much as canceled Korean military exercise

    The parade, which is now scheduled to take place on November 10, is currently estimated to cost approximately $12 million, the officials said. One official called the number "a planning figure," saying cost estimates could still change as planning develops.

    Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning told reporters earlier this month that the now-cancelled US-South Korea Freedom Guardian Exercise was estimated to cost approximately $14 million.

    Right wingers played again. How can they trust this idiot? How is it possible?

    To be fair, who wouldn't rather have a military parade?

    You simply like this idea because Trump came up with it. That’s all it is. You can’t think for yourself whatsoever. If Obama had proposed this, you all would have been constantly whining about what a waste it is.

    LMAO, the canceled exercise was just a command exercise, normal exercises in Korea with all the soldiers, sailors and marines, fighters and bombers cost much, much more. Probably close to 3/4ths of a billion, maybe more.

    Au contraire ... I'm always up for a parade.

    And I've been against the Joint Exercises with Korea ever since I participated in my first one in 1988.

    A lot of the equipment, including tanks and aircraft, we bring over for those games is left behind as irreparable, is actually off-the-books weapons transfers from the US to ROK that isn't approved by Congress.

    In fact, those games involve very little joint operations with ROK troops because we have totally different command and control structures. Even the joint operations command post south of Seoul, an underground facility called 'Tango' is basically just a US Command HQ.

    It's not President Trump that makes me happy ... it's your reaction to him. It's kind of priceless.
