“It was a coordinated attack… a very serious situation” – Professor Michael Bugeja on events in the United States

Professor Michael Bugeja, a lecturer in media ethics at the University of Iowa, has described the political situation in the United States as very serious.

When he was being interviewed on TVAM, Professor Bugeja alluded to the attack on Capitol Hill, where thousands of persons forced their way in and five lost their lives.  Professor Bugeja pointed out that the last similar attack had taken place in the war of 1812 when the British had burnt down the US Capitol.

Professor Bugeja added that some 15,000 National Guardsmen are presently guarding the Capitol, adding that this is more than there are in Iraq and Afghanistan.
