''I Felt Like I Was In Afghanistan'' - US Congressman Caught In Capitol Riot by rossoki: 6:46am On Jan 09, 2021
Colorado congressman Jason Crow, a former US envoy to Afghanistan, was caught up in the violent and deadly pro-Trump mob riot that broke into the US National Assembly Capitol building in Washington DC, with the mob armed with guns and dangerous weapons.

The congressman was forced to hide under the chamber seats and tables as the angry mob rampaged through the National Assembly building, smashing windows, guns blazing, and charging at policemen, many of whom were seen fleeing from the mob.

''I felt exactly the way I felt when I was in Afghanistan. No difference at all'', said the shaken congressman.

That s#it at the capitol that day was pretty hideous but you can't compare it with what goes down in Afghanistan on a regular.

That's more like an exaggeration and the congressman knows this- being an ex-ranger himself.

A political thug and a mujahideen are two different brands of terrorists. So are their respective modus operandi.

Trust me on that.

Why do these Americans keep comparing the Capitol riot to what happens in third world countries?? Bunch of clowns. They just cannot come to terms with the fact of what happened to them. They feel totally embarrassed, that's why they keep dragging third world countries into their narrative.

Republican leaders can be considered as complicit in trump irresponsible actions.
They keep following him like they have no sense of their own.

America is overrated country.

Why compare what is happening in the US to Afghanistan Mr.Congressman? Why not simply say America have been made the same shithole Trump have tagged others nations with?

Over Exaggeration. How can you compare war ridden Afghanistan to a mere invasion of just a tiny fragment of the United States? I am only happy as it would let them see what countries they set ablaze pass through.

When people such as you allowed what happened in Afghanistan to happen in US, you sure will get the same result.

Are you aware that 5 people were killed inside the Congress building, and that some of the mob entered there with bombs?

Very funny to see all the tough talking senators and House members run away from fellow Americans! They used to act as if they are the toughest bunch in town! Lol! It was very funny to see the video of some of these men that authorised the bombing and destructions of other countries cower in fear! One female member nearly had a heart attack as she lay shaking like a leaf! I bet some of them pissed in their pants. These were the same people who laughed as Gaddafi was killled in a war they sanctioned, the same tough guys that ruined Iraq and Afghanistan. When it comes to raining bombs on others, they become bold and daring, but when you bring mayhem to their doorsteps, they start to fidget.. Obviously it's always convenient to act tough when your young boys in the army are the ones doing the fighting! As strong Patriots, I expected them to sit in their chairs and dare the protesters! But they ran... Cowards!
