Military called in to Washington DC

Capitol Hill stormed by Trump voters following Trump inciting the rioting, Congress and Pence evacuated as the building taken over by rioters, several police injured and all local area police called in, entire DC National guard called in. Wow.

I don't know what to believe anymore.

The media are reporting them as Trump supporters yet several of the protestors (Viking Guy, Tattoo Guy, etc) have been pictured at Antifa riots in Philadelphia.

All I know is that the USA will be fighting themselves even long after Biden has been sworn into office. What a mess of a country thanks to politics and brainwashing.

Indeed...it's almost like the term "Antifa riots" was invented to cover up the small detail that it was the rent-a-mob & extremist Trump supporters that were doing most of the rioting...

Viking Guy is a Trump and QAnon supporter called Jake Angeli. He turns up as opposition all over the US. Some people on social media are claiming that he is ANTIFA, etc simply because he has appeared in images. He is there as the opposition.

Here he is addressing Trump supporters before a march.

Check out boogaloo, boogaloo bois/boys. People who look forward to some kind of apocalyptic civil war. Mostly right, but some left anarchist. Also reports of right extremists taking part in left extremist riots to stoke them up (and possibly the other way round).

Yes, clearly a briefed position. Inflammatory, I thought.

Has there ever before been a situation where a President deliberately precipitates an insurrection against his own government? Crazy times we live in.

Separate branches! Remember Yeltsin's tanks shelling the Russian parliament.

I've emailed my MP asking that the UK send in peacekeepers to restore law and order in what is clearly a failing state.

With history as a reminder, you tried that once and lost sorely.

Hey Richard W. I remember seeing that and thinking this is the end of communist Russia, not because of the tanks shelling parliament but because I was watching it on live T.V. I do so hope this is now not the end of America as over the years I have had a lot of good friends who are American and they deserve better than this.

Why was the police unable to stop the mob from entering the building in the first place? Isn't this pretty much a standard scenario to prepare for?
However they did a very good job clearing it again.

So the National Guard could only move in after the Vice President called them because the President had refused to do it.

The story that the VP called out the National Guard because the President declined to do so is false.

In fact the National Guard was called out 3 days ago by the Mayor in anticipation on yesterday’s events.

The failure would seem to be on the part of the Mayor, and army, in the number deployed and decision not to send any to the Capitol.

https://www.usnews.com/news/politics...d-for-protests

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bracing for possible violence, the nation's capital has mobilized the National Guard ahead of planned protests by President Donald Trump's supporters in connection with the congressional vote expected Wednesday to affirm Joe Biden's election victory......

.....Because D.C. does not have a governor, the designated commander of the city’s National Guard is Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. Any D.C. requests for Guard deployments have to be approved by him.

The defense official said that there will be no active duty military troops in the city, and the U.S. military will not be providing any aircraft or intelligence.

The D.C. Guard will provide specialized teams that will be prepared to respond to any chemical or biological incident. But the official said there will be no D.C. Guard members on the National Mall or at the U.S. Capitol........

I am shocked at what is happening in Washington. Trump has destroyed the credibility of America and its global reputation. Putin, Kim Il Jong and many others must be rubbing their hands in glee. This is 'democracy' controlled by significant others, and fuelled by rent-a-mob. And all this in the middle of the COVID pandemic. My thoughts are with the 'normal' American folk who will have to live with the consequences of the selfish actions of Trump and his supporters for many years to come.
