Not on this particular front though.

I'm not sure where one can gain international respect with that. People have laughed about North Korea countless times for all the parades they make, especially the waste of diesel going with such. In the US, there is nothing such although I would once have thought the most powerful army on earth would have a right to have their own parade.
