FILE – In this July 30, 1953 black-and-white file photo, Commander-in-chief, United Nations Command, and U.S. Army Gen. Mark Clark signs the Military Armistice agreement at a base camp at Munsan-ni, Korea.

The first is the leading role that America still is committed to playing in defending South Korea should the 1950-53 Korean War re-ignite. (AP Photo, File)

One would never know from observing the Soviet-style march we are no longer in the height of the Cold War. It is truly a staggering testament to just how regressive – not progressive – collectivist policies are.
