The whole 1/6 storming of the capitol was bad, very bad, but it failed and it failed miserably and quickly.
My assessment is was a disorganized coup attempt by mostly of fringe paramilitary crazies who probably have been fuckups their entire lives. Come-on now, just look at who they deem as their Supreme leader of their movement to over throw the government: Donald Trump.
If it weren't real, it would be a comical story line to a movie or book:
A bunch of losers, fuckups, and mentally unstable people decided to storm the capitol truly believing the perfect moment has arrived to over throw the most powerful govement in the world. The man who inspires them is a narcissistic sociopath pathological liar that does not give a shit about anyone of them, or anyone else on the planet, and just wants to save his own ass and stay in power.
With Donald Trump at the top the coup it was doomed to fail as it did. Throughout his entire life everything Trump touches become worses, and then even worse. Trump inspires crazy people to be more crazy (ie Rudy Giuliani, Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, etc). He does not inspire hardcore terrorists with very serious and devastating plans. What we saw was a coup attempt by the gang-who-couldn't-shoot-straight.
One big take away, if it had been an event on par with 911, it would have been far far worse, far far better planned and executed. Real hardcore American based terrorists would have stormed the capitol with automatic weapons, been inside senate chamber before any congressmen had a chance to escape, detonated several bombs in key locations, and made sure that they killed all political leaders they could track down in congress so that it would not be possible to ratify the electoral votes.... Something like that would have happened if it were planned and executed by professional American terrorists that are serious like those who were involved in 911. I think we got lucky, this time. Next time it won't be a bunch of fuckups led by Trump.
However, Donald Trump has been a slow rolling 911 event for the past 4 years, and just as deadly. Donald Trump harms and kills through an endless series of mostly paper cuts, one after another after another. Its akin to bleeding to death one drop of blood at a time.
