Storming the Capitol – Is the US on the brink of civil war?

After the storming of the Capitol in Washington, the current political dispute has reached a new level of escalation

Austrian analyst Patrick Poppel assesses the situation in the US as very serious.


“The storming of legislative buildings is more familiar to us from Eastern Europe and the Third World. When something like this happens in the US, it takes a long time to resolve the conflict”, –  Poppel says.

Since the Capitol and the flag and constitution have a special status for Americans, the line has been crossed.

“One has to wonder what further polarisation of American society could lead to. The logical consequence would be a civil war”, –  says Poppel.
