This was my answer to this question on https://www.quora.com/What-do-you-think-of-President-Trumps-idea-to-have-a-big-military-parade-in-DC-on-Independence-Day/answer/Desmond-Last?share=1
Good idea then America can see that $600 billion a year does not bring Peace to anywhere in the World.
President Trump is right. The U.N requires urgent reform. It is not too difficult to envisage a North Korea solution that results in a Trade Deal with Russia and China in exchange for a nuclear arms freeze whilst America pays for the 30,000 troops in South Korea. Nice one America say China and Russia. Now we have Afghanistan and the South China Seas whilst all you have are body bags.
It is time World Peace was applied equally by all the Nations of the World -independent of Vested Nation State Interest.
It is not right that predominantly America and the U.K risk and lose the lives of their Military to ensure Peace for the markets that China and Russia export and sell to. It is not America or the U.K the emerging post-Syrian Conflict Middle East is going to do business with – it will be Russia and China.
I have written a very detailed proposal for a reform of the United Nations – a lot of effort has been made to stop me presenting it to the World – all the more reason to seek reform. A lot of money is corrupted on its route through and with the U.N and that has to stop.
As for the actual Parade – why not. They are prepared to die for their Nation. We should celebrate their allegiance to their Country.
