Fence for rent and National Guard fighters with automatic rifles without shops: features of guarding the Capitol in the United States

83

The network discusses events from the life of the American capital. First of all, we are talking about the fact that the number of soldiers of the National Guard in Washington today exceeded 25 thousand people. At the same time, more than a third of the National Guards, as it turns out, are reservists who were attracted to extraordinary training sessions. American journalists from the scene report that on the territory of the Capitol, which has already been declared a "green zone" according to the principle of dividing into zones of Baghdad, "storerooms" called upon by the National Guard, who work as teachers, cooks, office workers, etc. are on duty.


Attention is drawn to several features related to the organization of the said "green zone".

One such thing: the fence that is exposed around the Capitol is rented. Americans would not have been Americans if they had not left a sign with the contacts of a company that provides the opportunity to rent these same fences on the protective fence at which the soldiers were lined up.

American user Grizzly Country comments on a channel's report on the creation of a green zone in Washington:

Let's be honest. If American citizens really want to do something, then there will not be enough military forces or law enforcement agencies.

Also discussed is the external cordoning of the territory of the parliamentary complex by the employees of the US National Guard. Most of the military have with them weaponincluding automatic rifles. However, an interesting oddity is that many fighters do not have magazines attached to their rifles.

Fence for rent and National Guard fighters with automatic rifles without shops: features of guarding the Capitol in the United States

The cartridges are in special boxes, which in turn were left in armored vehicles. It is possible to load the rifle only in an emergency situation after consulting the unit commander with intelligence officers. This feature is explained as follows: the Federal Bureau of Investigation still does not trust the military, believing that even after their repeated checks "for the loyalty of the constitution" among 25 thousand there may well be those who are ready to support the protesters - if they appear in front of the Capitol. Recall that the so-called "millionth march of the militia" is scheduled for January 20 in the United States.



Commenting on all this, one of the American congressmen noted that he saw something similar only during a trip to the capital of Iraq - a completely blocked center, thousands of armed military personnel, to put it mildly, a nervous situation. Even because of the fire under the bridge in the campground of the Washington homeless, extraordinary measures were taken - all the entrances and exits of the Capitol were closed, and its employees were forbidden to approach the windows. And this is the first time in many years when not only firefighters, but also vehicles with FBI special forces arrived to the homeless under the bridge.

The dollar is above all, if advertising and rental prices are already set on the fence of the Capitol, for those who wish Americans would not have been Americans if they had not left a sign with the contacts of a company that provides the opportunity to rent these very fences on the protective fence at which the soldiers were lined up.

        Good people, of course! But only for the time being.
        Until they get the axes from the caches.
        Kind. Until they took heavy clubs.
        Until the carbines were disassembled from the arsenals.

        These people are kind, of course. Until they get angry.
        They will be good until they meet evil goats. lyat.
        They will be kind until they give a damn about the soul.
        Kind, as long as no one is wounded, not shell-shocked.

        People are kind until they stop believing.
        Until the entrance doors were taken out of their hinges!
        Until they say: they are people, only half.
        Then don't expect good things. Then wait for the club.

        Good people, until one fine day,
        These people suddenly did not find themselves under fire.
        Good they are, until the cannonade rumbles,
        Until we have acted, it is not necessary to act.

        Of course, they will sharply miss the good,
        If they kick them off, they break two ribs ...
        People will be kind when they feel warm
        If people do not cut off with their fists at the "scoreboard"

        When people are kind, all people are kind.
        Until they jumped at them, hissing like cobras.
        Of course, kind ... If with them on good.
        If evil seeds are not thrown anywhere.

      Military

      NG, as it were, is not quite military in the sense that the National Guard is subordinate to the state authorities, and the military in active service - to the president, i.e. Trump

        The National Guard is in double subordination, both states and federations. It is considered a reserve for the US Army and Air Force. National guardsmen were sent to both Iraq and Afghanistan.

          One does not interfere:
          The "dual status" of the US Armed Forces Organized Reserve servicemen is historically determined and enshrined in a legal and regulatory context.
          Acting as part of the NG, they are guided by the provisions outlined in Title 32 "National Defense" of the US Code of Federal Laws, and have the status of a state representative. If a soldier is recruited into military service as part of or in conjunction with regular forces, the provisions of Title 10 "Armed Forces" of the US Code of Laws come into effect, and he himself acquires the status of a federal employee.

          This is if parts of NG are not part of the so-called. "integrated" teams of double subordination.

    But isn't the US National Guard entirely reservists?
    For some reason, I always thought that way ...
    I heard from them and firefighters are purely enthusiasts on a voluntary basis in their free time trying to put out something there.
    And the fences ... Well, then, fences. Assembled today / disassembled tomorrow as unnecessary. Do not build from bricks every time ...
    Everything is pragmatic. Right now everything will settle down, the fence will not be needed.

      But isn't the US National Guard entirely reservists?

      Yeah, they're all volunteers. Half a million bayonets.

    And in Russia, even well hatches are welded. And if the Dear Leader wants to ride on the slope, then they close the whole ski resort, and do not care about the paid ski pass and limited vacation time.
    So the Americans weren't surprised.

    Being in Crimea, when he was near Ukraine, he witnessed the blocking of the highway for the passage of government officials almost from Yalta to Simferopol. And this is not a dozen kilometers. And what?

      And how did you determine that the entire route is blocked? Have you looked from end to end? smile

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation still distrusts the servicemen, believing that even after repeated checks on their "loyalty to the constitution" among 25 there may well be those who are ready to support the protesters

    In the queue before receiving the ammunition: "Whose Crimea ... ugh Trump?"

    Amazing solution! In a country in which the population has more trunks in its hands than the population itself, unarmed security looks rather touching smile

      I am asking, not judging.
      There, seventy kilometers through a mountain pass and along the way through a rather big city, the road still goes, how can you see that the entire route is blocked?

    What do you mean by a rather big city? There are no cities there between Yalta and Simferopol except Alushta in my memory. And he practically remains on the side. This is perhaps for Simferopol itself.
    That time we were with our family without a car. It was necessary to get to the station in Simferopol. The minibus was detained. I had to wait. Drove said that there is no way there or back. Then they let him in. On the way, at almost all congresses and chippers there were communication vehicles, ambulances, etc. On the road above the road stood Ukrainian soldiers within line of sight of each other. Like, cool guys, all in bandanas and dark glasses. Something like this. In my opinion, it was under Kuchma.

    "Fence for rent and National Guard soldiers with automatic rifles without magazines" ...

    This used to be ubiquitous in the USSR, troops went to the people with polished boots and nothing unloaded weapons. It is a very bad practice when military weapons are brought to the people unloaded, i.e. ... useless, it undermines the military spirit and respect for the concept of warrior.
    There is a simple principle ... if you took out a sword from its scabbard - cut it. As long as it was observed, both the soldiers and the army were honored, because actions with weapons meant something and were not performed in vain. But window dressing and props ruined everything. Little by little, but inevitably and thoroughly ...
    Presumably, those who will "guard the" Capitol "virtually without weapons, it was scary, they are pears for whipping - they will be seen everywhere, those who come to the Capitol to hate, will hate those who are best seen. everything else, that is, what is actually dangerous, will be invisible.
    ... in the USSR, a soldier with an empty horn was an object of empty pride, in the United States it will become an object of empty hatred, and in both cases it will become obvious too late ((.

      I don’t remember that an empty horn was fastened
      And so, of course, a machine without a horn in the city looks strange. Always accompanied by an officer or warrant officer, always with a charged Makarov, so that the hooligans would not be taken away.
      Outside the city, from a shooting range, for example, a common thing without a horn

    The cartridges are in special boxes, which in turn were left in armored vehicles.
    right, and if they are taken away in a street fight with protesters, who will then be responsible for such things, in the form of a "leftist" caught in illegal circulation, army ammunition !? :) Safety is above all, especially in the capital, there is generally complete " kapets "in the sphere of arms restrictions, they are fierce even with the National Guard on tin ...

    even if they did not leave a sign with the contacts of a company that provides an opportunity to rent these very fences on the protective fence at which the soldiers are lined up.
    business is nothing personal, but advertising is its engine, why be surprised !? :)))

    Americans would not have been Americans if they had not left a sign with the contacts of a company that provides the opportunity to rent these very fences on the protective fence at which the soldiers were lined up.

    But with us how to answer you will not find whose property, but how to profit to receive everything in line before the fight, but the state is the first and can sell the line.

    And Biden down the narrow alleys
    They are being driven from the day after tomorrow to yesterday.
    What a fence! FBI agents,
    Secret service brave guys
    Police are being watched without any measures
