What really happened in Washington and what is going on in the American capital while we are talking to each other?

Edward Luttwak:

A riot, a small, variegated riot.

And riots are not unusual.

The special thing about this is that it was instigated by the current ruler.

Many rulers have faced uprisings.

They were usually knocked down by the palace guards.

But here we have the case that the king himself organized the insurrection.

Nonetheless, this uprising was all pictures.


You see it pretty calmly.

Others are more alarmist.

George W. Bush speaks of chaos and that what has happened is worthy of a banana republic, but not of the United States.

Hillary Clinton writes that those who broke into the Capitol were domestic terrorists.

And a Republican MP tweeted that they were going to witness a coup.
