HONG KONG, Aug 1 (Reuters)- Thousands of Chinese troops will parade in Hong Kong on Sunday in a show of might aimed at boosting Chinese nationalism and the appeal of pro-Beijing candidates ahead of key legislative elections in September.
About 3,000 People's Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers based in Hong Kong are due to take part in the unprecedented parade at their barracks with tanks and helicopters.

I always loved the military parades of Russia and China. Marching along with mobile missles and tanks with sweet formation fly overs. I wish America had parades like that but they would be full of anti-war people and hippies protesting or something over here.
