The last time we had tanks rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue was under FDR (if memory serves us), who as we’ve often pointed out wasn’t exactly a friend of liberty nor an example for any US president to follow. We are not Ecuador or Indonesia or France. In the States we’ve traditionally shied away from these types of things, and that is a good thing. The US doesn’t need to show off its military might. Everyone knows the deal.
