    I get the point but let's not compare victory in World War II with victory in a conflict with a single, minor belligerent. I don't think it's fair to take away not only the sacrifice in life that soldiers made, but the sacrifice all civilians made as well.

    To paraphrase the words of contemporary soldiers, "America isn't at war. The troops are at war. America is at the mall." The conflicts aren't even remotely similar.

    It's not guns the people who have these parades are trying to wave around.

    Theres also the actual issue of declaring victory, when the terrorist organisation that calls themselves ISIS is still very much alive and committed multiple terrorist attacks in the united states last year.

    It would be some sad irony if they committed one at the victory parade celebrating their defeat.

    I think that is strikingly insulting to King Tut.

    He died at 8, and lived when human brains were comparatively less developed, so I'm using some artistic license in the comparison.

    How very generous of you. Carry on.
    I have to agree the idea is strangely infantile and an exercise in virtual dick waving at the same time.

    It's eerily reminiscent of pre-democratic feudalistic autocracies, where huge expenditures of would-be-public money were spent for the grandiose whims of the Kings and royalty, detached from any input from the commoners.

    I mean, it makes more sense for countries like North Korea or Israel, whose sovereignty feels constantly threatened such that military demonstrations are important to national consciousness.

    But for the United States? Just weird..

    Not even in the top 10 of things that they've wasted money on so you know what I'm okay with this.

    I'm surprised, with the massive hype surrounding Infinity War, that we haven't seen Trump as Thanos memes.

    The left. Work tirelessly to bring in unlimited numbers of third worlders. Act surprised when some third world shit happens.

    You think O'Neill is a leftist?

    LOL

    FYI He's a former Navy SEAL (the guy who shot Bin Laden on that raid) and is currently a Fox News Contributor. He's not even remotely liberal.

    Both Switzerland and Japan also have universal healthcare, I'm happy that you are suggesting we follow their lead.

    Lmao. Those are great examples of 3rd world countries. But I’m sure you wouldn’t know the difference considering where you live.

    Apparently Switzerland and Japan are Third World countries according to Sherdog's political analysts.

    Are you serious? Thanos is an all around bad motherfucker, not a fat bald dipshit. It would be insulting.

    You know who's all politics and the demeanor of a child? Trump. Don't sully the good name of Thanos by comparing him to a guy that's compelled to defend the size of his hands.
