Actually been to a number of third world countries that still maintain a civil decency even during civil unrest, Thailand December 2013 stands out in my mind. Things got very heated between protesters and then one of the redshirts chucking around a hand grenade.More videos are coming out about the Trump supporters who stormed the Capital Building on Wednesday. The way there devolved into a mob is quite stunning. They started attacking the media, police, though you don't see any "blue lives matter" here, and Representatives and Senators. Democracy is a fragile thing and I'm glad to see that more of these people are getting arrested as they are identified. Yesterday there were at least 83 people under arrest and I expect that number to increase drastically as individuals are identified in this mob. This looked much more like a third world country than the USA.
There is no civility, just selfishness playing out. I see it on all sides.
I don't know where this guy is going with his logic. He jumps around linking unconnected events...True? I hope to God it is:
Pakistan was in the world news over the last couple of days for the large power outage due to its extremely fragile power infrastructure an engineering fault... dead substation XMFR caused this. IT is no surprise that it has happened before.
