Armed people without signs in Washington: how Trump repeated Putin's trick


On the streets of Washington, covered in riots, eyewitnesses often see people in military uniforms without identification marks. Experts of the German publication Focus recall in this connection the “annexation” of Crimea by Russia in 2014 - there Putin also used the military in camouflage without insignia, the so-called “green men”. Trump seems to have decided to repeat the trick of the Russian president.


Unmarked men patrolling the streets of the American capital are, together with the police, the National Guard, and the Army Special Forces, the largest group of military personnel deployed in Washington since the street protests against the Vietnam War. Of particular concern to this are American congressional Democrats and human rights defenders.


We cannot be patient with the secret police of America. The United States usually condemns such tactics when it comes to other countries. But now its use threatens democratic principles in our own state

- Democratic senator Chris Murphy said.


According to The New York Times, people in uniforms without insignia directly report to the U.S. Department of Defense. Attorney General William Barr allowed the representatives of various departments of the country to be taken out onto the street: the FBI, the Ministry of Internal Security, the Presidential Secret Service, the customs service, etc.

Moreover, according to information by the US, among the armed people were also employees of private military companies.

    That's exactly what so, "little green men" are called these heroic guys are only foreign "voices" and their "echoes"!
    And Crimeans and adequate citizens rightly call them, their defenders from pro-American pro-Turkish extremists, "polite people"!
    And in terms of their bloody actions, Trump's "green men" are antipodes to Putin's "polite people (who have not shed a drop of human blood!)"!
    So the Goebbels' "trick" of the German "experts" turned out to be far-fetched (behind the protruding ears of Washington propaganda)!

      Try to avoid cheap clichés. Unlike Putin Land, in the United States, the actions of these "little men" are as transparent as possible, this is how their system of law and control by society is arranged. It is extremely difficult to hide public actions, down to specific names and accounting entries. Therefore, any incident with the authorities' jambs has such a resonance. Unlike the impunity of the Kremlin, the security forces in the states clearly know the limit of their powers and figs will go beyond it. And the figs will go beyond the insurance coverage And they could mobilize all civil servants, including postmen. The main difference with Crimea is that the United States does it in its own country and legally.

    And where are the cries of the liberal media that something terrible is going on? Or haven't they given the order yet?

    Does the “American Maidan” mean the end of the USA?

    Evenings with Soloviev are not watched in the USA. Therefore, they will be rightly indignant. Then they will break those who went too far. And everything will be the same. And the guys from Destruction Ranch drinks will put guns in the armory rooms. And everything will be in the USA as before. Hate Nazism and Negroes. Any American will defend his country. Ready fighter. With his own weapon in hand. And leave tales about dry closets and cold Coca-Cola, where the US military is fighting. Not US civilians. Motivated. And armed to the teeth. They will smear anyone who tries to invade their home. Torn into small pieces. Chopped to the trash. And this will not be the usual US war for oil. This is their home. This is their way of thinking and living.

      And then 100 years will be excused from lawyers. Some black Louisiana judge will vindicate him a $ 4 billion fine based on newspaper reports - and the entire state. the US car will stand up against this "defender".
      In the end, riots have a positive side - the collapse of the real economy can be attributed to it, and it is well distracted from rising unemployment.

      Ummm ... um ... but where does the civilian and the national hodgepodge from different departments, including private companies? And yes, if I followed "Matthew", I saw that he said that he was for protests and against police arbitrariness, that is, he is on the side of the protesters)) In short, you took it and turned everything through the opa))

    A normal country should be able to protect itself and citizens from the raging hooligans.

    There is no need to hammer in the eyes: on their shields - large, thirty-centimeter inscriptions "Police" ("Police"). Just watch the video.
