Should We Be Concerned?

By now we all have seen the fiasco around and in the Capitol building on 06 January and the reports from the different news sources….but is it possible that there is not much to be concerned with?

This is an op-ed that shows little concern for the actions of some…..

Let’s be clear about what took place at the Capitol Building last night. This was a mob assault on the institutions of democracy. The ragtag army of Capitol breachers may have looked ridiculous, decked out in Trump-wear and face paint and antlers. But what they did was not ridiculous, it was serious. They illegally entered the democratic citadel of the United States, a beacon of democracy to many people around the world, with the express intention of blocking the peaceful transition of power voted for by their fellow citizens. They committed a violent incursion against the practice and the ideal of democracy.

Don’t exaggerate the threat of the Capitol rioters

I do not know if totally agree with this opinion.

What do you think?

Should we be concerned or not?

I say yes!

  1. Have they gone away to ‘organise underground’? Can we expect something like the Oklahoma City Bomb again? In a country where mass shootings are regular events, and a substantial percentage of the population owns and carries deadly firearms, anything is possible.

    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Mr. O’Neill does a grave disservice to his readers by his dismissiveness. Mixed in with the redneck yahoos, were the hate groups and people who had far more sinister intentions. Armed Ex-military carrying restraints. Mobs of people beating police officers. As bad as this was we’re lucky it wasn’t worse. This isn’t over.
