So ISIS seems to be threatning terrorism attacks july 4 on line.

Mostly nothing unusual about that for the most part but heres the - 'ear perking part.'

For the first time trump will place military tanks strategically around festivities.

Is this a sign of a taking the threat seriously?

Might have to have eyes in the back of your heads if out in big crowds july 4.

Will these tanks encourage a attack on them and if so is this infact endangering any crowd in close proximity?

If the US were not dropping 35,000 bombs in the ME every year there would not be so many radicals to worry about.

Do you really believe the nonsense you're saying?
The Capitol Police do an excellent job of protecting any events in DC.

They're not there to protect the festivities. They are there to look nice.
They will not be armed, there won't be any ammunition or shells in them. At most there will be a soldier with the tank with a 9mm to stop any idiots with the idea of taking the tank for a joy ride.

The tanks and other military equipment are there not to protect but to project America's military might to the watching world , kinda like Russia and North Korea do but on a smaller scale.

Your Military Industrial Complex President wants to show off his destructive toys like the big boys do , bless his cotton socks.

Happy July 4th for tomorrow , I'm sure it'll be Yuuuge.

Well, I guess it's a good excuse.

So all of a sudden for no apparent reason for the first time these tanks are present for no purpose other than looking good?

Certainly hope that's the case.

But is it just show - with the recent online threats from jihadists and the Alaskan waters submarine reports things are getting hot.

What's so different about this years july 4 to warrant such granduer?

Recent recall of pence to White House, the pots cooking.

After all this is a conspiracy site. Isn't it?

He wanted to do it last year but it didn't happen because the fear of damage all those tanks would cause to the streets so he changed the plan and the tanks will now be brought in by low loaders and placed in static positions instead.

This from March last year.

But a Pentagon planning memo issued on Thursday and released on Friday said the parade being planned for 11 November will “include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure”.

In other words, heavy tanks could tear up the streets of DC and will thus not be allowed to rumble past the president on his reviewing stand.

The event will “include a heavy air component at the end of the parade”, the memo said, meaning lots of airplane flyovers. Older aircraft will be included as available.

The memo did not include a cost estimate. The White House budget director recently told Congress the cost to taxpayers could be between $10m and $30m.

The memo from the office of Jim Mattis, the defense secretary, offered initial planning guidance to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, whose staff will plan the parade along a route from the White House to the Capitol and integrate it with the city’s annual veterans’ parade.

I still can't figure how a B-2 flying overhead helps if the tanks can't move?

Still, such excellence in showmanship.

These pesky terrorists, they could thwart those tanks with bags of groceries, Tiananmen square anyone?

It's just a show of might, no one would be so stupid to run towards a heavily armed battalion and blow themselves up...I stand corrected.

The parade is going to be awesome!

Don't do it every year, thats tacky..

a one off!... I think Trumps smart enough not to put his image, his name or anything extravagant around... he's smarter than that!

but it would be f****n sick if he rode in ontop of an M1 Abrams



Its been so long since the US put its toys on display.. be good for morale!

... god help any fool who tries to make a statement or wants to cause carnage..
you and your country will be destroyed!!

So, what are these tanks going to do? fire their heavy caliber weapons into the crowds if they see a suicide bomber?

I'd rather see a metal detector arch and a sniffer dog.

Ever heard of an air show? We do it every year on the base that I work at.

I think the OP is trolling you...the post is mad as a bag o’ shpiders.

Tanks defeat obstacles and armor in battle. They are useless as a security measure at a 4th of July party.

I don't think you thought this one through.


Just try and imagine for a second how tanks would be effectively used in the middle of a highly populated city full of innocent citizens, against a few theoretical terrorists in and amongst the crowds.

Might as well fly a few bombers up in the sky just in case!
