Nestled between Mexico and Canada on the North American Continent, a peace loving country is expressing the utmost concern that its contrarian leader wants to hold a military parade of the kind normally only held by countries obsessed with exerting their influence well beyond their borders.
“It’s just not right.”
Citizens of the quaint pacifist nation have severe reservations about the message having a few military vehicles driving down one of their boulevards might send.
“What’s next? Deploying armed forces beyond our sovereign territory? Letting private citizens own powerful firearms?”
In the end, most of them agreed that, if there has to be a military parade, there are better ways of carrying it out.
“Why can’t we have a nice parade of drones high up in the sky instead so we can just pretend it’s not really happening?”
