Top political cartoonist Ted Rall presents a searing indictment of the forgotten victims of American military might.

President Donald Trump’s grandiose vision for the 2019 Fourth of July celebration in Washington, DC, included tanks and other armored vehicles, as well as a flyover by military jets, in what the president ordered would be a “Salute to America.”

Before the event, there were concerns raised by the DC Council that the massive 60-ton M1  Abrams battle tanks would shred the lawns, recently relaid at the cost of $40 million, on the National Mall.

But in a debut for WhoWhatWhy, Ted Rall — one of America’s top political cartoonists — highlights the true cost of American military power.
