When are the troops leaving? Never, if the Democrats have their way. 25,000 National Guard members were deployed to Washington D.C. to protect Biden’s inauguration from a threat that never existed. Even though nothing had happened since the Capitol Riot and even though the 7,000 troops already in the city, who had been authorized to use lethal force, were far more than the 2,500 troops fighting in Afghanistan, more were needed. The Democrats deployed ten times more troops to fight other Americans than to fight Al Qaeda. “Every state, territory and the District of Columbia will have National Guard men and women supporting the inauguration,” a public statement bragged.
