"Washington ceases to resemble a military base": in the United States dismantle a metal fence near the building on Capitol Hill

22

Washington has begun dismantling structures that have been installed around the complex of buildings on Capitol Hill. Recall that the Capitol was fenced in with a metal fence, reinforced with concrete blocks, in January this year - before the inauguration of Joe Biden.

Then the appropriate order was given in connection with the riots in the center of the American capital - when several thousand people gathered in front of the Congress building to demand an honest vote count in the last elections. Several dozen of Donald Trump's most active supporters broke into the building itself. Moreover, as evidenced by numerous footage from Washington, police officers often themselves removed the fences in front of the Capitol.



Now the metal fence, about 2,5 meters high, is being dismantled. Several entrances have already been opened, which have been blocked by the American National Guard and police for more than six months.

The American press writes that "gradually Washington ceases to resemble a military base and returns to its usual appearance."

Special equipment carries out the loading of sections of the fence, which was previously rented from one of the private companies.

At the same time, the Americans will still not be able to get into the building on Capitol Hill. The authorities explain this by the fact that Washington is taking measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. Earlier (before the anti-window measures and the installation of metal fences in the central part of Washington), it was possible to get to the Capitol both to address congressmen and as part of an excursion group.

Recall that earlier, the National Guard was withdrawn from the building on Capitol Hill, which was originally placed right on the floor of the Congress building.

        As everyone knows except the authorities, it is not a weapon that shoots, but a person. So that's quite right - nothing is over yet

        I also think they took everything off early and calmed down .. By the way, it looked very good)))
        In Russia, even during the turmoil of the 90s, the Kremlin was not fenced with barbed wire and fences .. That is how terrible they fear .. For everything, answer the Amers!

        No need to hurry !!!

        I also think - in vain ... But for reasons of correspondence between the "picture" of the capital and the internal content ... "Postal" president, wild censorship, persecution of dissidents, unbelted BLM ... Against this background, the Capitol, entangled with barbed wire, looked harmonious. laughing

        There, almost all the negroes killed each other.
        What is the culture of small arms fluency among blacks?
        Does everyone go to IPSC courses? smile
        I believe that they have few legal, official weapons, but mostly stolen, criminal ones.

              Still, as it happens, it's enough to repeat this communist tale. I will not debate for a long time, take, for example, the Poles, for how many centuries they have been sharpening our teeth, despite the fact that they were part of the Russian Empire and in the socialist camp. You can walk on many so. And the fact that not all of them hate us so much is normal.
              We also have enough idiots who hate their country.

      Tours have not been conducted for over a year due to the coronavirus, so you will have to wait with that. And with congressmen somewhere else since last autumn, for the same reason, they communicate in another building, near the library. Everything there is equipped and organized, judging by the stories, pretty well.

      The wall was simply pushed aside - is the hunt for the Trumpists still going on? Well, it means that the wall was removed only around the administration barrack, but in the rest of the concentration camp everything is still)
      In general, news from the United States is encouraging ... Since June 26, it seems, they cannot make out the rubble at the site of one house in Miami ... In Haiti, they caught a RDP from 1 tripods and 2 former Colombian warriors. What is the same - all the security forces of Colombia are subordinate to the United States, any FBI agent with a blue eye can ORDER the Colombian police just to stop the case ... Circus. Triumph of democracy. And, well, yes, negotiations with the Taliban, which the United States officially recognized as terrorists - also according to the law))) And not even negotiations, but surrender

      And can you find out the length of this barrier? And then it seems to me that the fence of the egg is shorter, albeit tens of thousands of times more expensive. laughing
