I think there is a direct correlation between how much of a douchebag a nation-state’s government is and the size/frequency of its military parades in urban centers. A multiplier of this would be whether or not they include large guided missile systems as a part of these extravagant displays.
Any given country’s douchebag rating (D) could be calculated with the following formulae:
(Z x Y) x (N x M) = D
Z = The average total number of military vehicles presented.
Y = The average total number of military personel brought forth to goose-step past the Great Leader.
N = The number of military parades per year.
M = The total average number of I.C.B.M. trailers present in any given parade.
So far as politics and military industry are concerned, I.C.B.M. launchers have consistently demonstrated their use as compensative cod-pieces for various despotic and autocratic regimes - particularly those of communist (not to be mistaken with socialist) alignment.
The open display and parading of weapon systems that are designed and produced (at a considerable cost) almost entirely for the targeting and instant decimation of large, civilian urban centres is nothing to be proud of.
Kim Jong-Il, I’m talking to you. You and others like you are wankers - we get it. Now put your codpieces away before the adults backhand you.
