Center of Washington is blocked: the situation on the eve of Biden's inauguration is unpredictable


A few days before the inauguration of the 46th President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, increased security measures were introduced in Washington. The center of the American capital is blocked and turned into a kind of a besieged fortress. The situation on the eve of the inauguration of the new head of state looks unpredictable.


The event should take place on January 20, 2021. The ceremony will be held on the steps of the US Congress building.

Capitol Hill, the surrounding neighborhoods, Central Boulevard and the White House, where Biden will live and work, are surrounded by numerous concrete barriers, metal fences with barbed wire, turnstiles and barriers. Closed 13 metro stations, stopped the movement of buses. All showcases on the ground floors of adjacent buildings are carefully covered with wooden panels. It just became impossible to get into the city center.

In addition, groups of National Guard servicemen are on duty at the crossroads (more than 10 thousand - 15 thousand are planned), several special checkpoints have been equipped for checking documents, reinforced patrols of police officers and special equipment are moving. Military trucks and Humvee SUVs with machine guns are everywhere. To better assess the scale of what is happening, it is necessary to clarify that there are only 5,5 thousand American troops in Afghanistan, and even less in Iraq - 3,5 thousand.

We know that this is very inconvenient for our residents and businesses. I want to thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Obviously we are in an unpredictable situation

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said recently.

At the same time, the US FBI launched an investigation into whether foreign governments, organizations or individuals provided financial support to those who carried out the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.

    Everything is predictable. Biden will be elected. And all sorts of riots there will not surprise anyone.

      So it's not surprising that 15k barrels were adjusted.)
      Zhora Bidon is afraid of his people.
      And the whole Democratic Caudle, too.

            ... the country loves its president ...

            123, did you choose the right verb? Because “to love the president” is a perversion. You can respect / disrespect / despise / hate / ignore the president, but you cannot love, he is a simple official, and officials are “not liked”. They love their wife / mother / child. The last time in Russia they loved the tsar, but the people were then almost a slave. Do you want to say that even now Russians feel slavish feelings before the “tsar” (excuse me, the president)? It is interesting that when you read the comments of Russians on the country's internal problems, which are not related to the military, 99% of the readers are “traitors / liberals / corrupt_western”, since they do not express any "love" for their president. If we ignore the comments from Belarus, Ukraine (or mine), then there are still a lot of those who remain, but not a “country”.
            You, 123, belong to the propaganda-washed (or paid) readers who represent the slavish part of the population of Russia, but this is not a “country”. The country is a silent mass that once a year wants to convey its pain to the tsar and complain about the guardsmen, the country is whose youth strive to break out, the country is millions in the hinterland, who were allowed to collect dead wood, but who were closed hospitals.
            You, 123, are not a country ...

              Why then? You put a slightly different meaning in this, the years spent in the USA were not in vain laughing You can love both the Motherland and the flag, when they say that they love Leps, they usually mean his work, there is such an expression as a people's favorite.

              You can respect / disrespect / despise / hate / ignore the president, but you cannot love, he is a simple official, and officials are “not liked”.

              I would have lived in the USA, I would have thought it wrong, we have a little differently. In any case, the Kremlin is not surrounded by barbed wire before the inauguration. laughing By the way, what do you have there in the Capitol take for the night oath?

              The last time in Russia they loved the tsar, but the people were then almost a slave. Do you want to say that even now Russians feel slavish feelings before the “tsar” (excuse me, the president)?

              It's one step from love to hatred laughing But seriously, it is difficult to call the people who killed the tsar typical representatives of the people, and people who were not "almost slaves" betrayed him. By the way, under this "almost" you can sum up anything and you have a very real prospect of feeling everything on your own skin.

              It is interesting that when you read the comments of Russians on the country's internal problems, which are not related to the military, 99% of the readers are “traitors / liberals / corrupt_western”, since they do not express any "love" for their president. If we ignore the comments from Belarus, Ukraine (or mine), then there are still a lot of those who remain, but not a “country”.

              Well, actually 99% of the figure is clearly overstated. You are right, they really are "not a country" if you notice their concentration in the comments significantly exceeds the statistical value in the real world. This is exactly how they try to create virtual reality. They are more active, some of them mimic the Russians, and nobody canceled any bot farms. They are still making their modest contribution to the GDP of Ukraine and I believe our Baltic and Polish partners.

              You, 123, belong to the propaganda-washed (or paid) readers who represent the slavish part of the population of Russia, but this is not a “country”.

              What an incendiary speech !!! good
              I believe that if you are not able to confirm your statement with facts, then it is wiser to consider your brains washed out. Do you think you are not the slaves of the globalists? The fact that they decently feed their "herd" does not mean a long and happy life. As a result, each cow turns into a steak. Right now, some strange armed people are roaming all over your country. The capital is under siege. And you consider yourself the standard of freedom. Try to write on your page that Trump is your president, and the elections were held with violations. Immediately feel the "leash length" laughing
              I don't see anything wrong with the desire of young people to see the world, yours is brewed in its own juice, which greatly limits the horizons. I don't see any problems with hospitals, in my opinion it's not for you to talk about the quality of traditional medicine.
              I assure you, it is very difficult to find people collecting deadwood to cook a hedgehog on the fire, and you have no less strange laws. Follow the link for the very first selection. Read, have fun hi

    In a word, the junta. If only Lukashenka could help, he established a dialogue with the protesters.
