Washington DC looks like an absolute warzone.
DC currently has over 20,000 troops deployed all around the city and has installed large fences with razor wire to surround the city and federal offices.
Yes, razor wire which is a lot worse than barbed wire.
Take a look at the prison yard, I mean DC yourself!

It's a surreal scene in Washington, D.C. this weekend with tens of thousands of National Guard troops deployed to defend the capital. 9-foot fences, barbed wire and a perimeter of soldiers was unthinkable just two weeks ago. @LACaldwellDC has more. pic.twitter.com/CC1xpxZMjz

Check out what the Daily Mail had to share:
Security measures are intensifying in Washington DC with razor wire now installed on anti-climb fences outside the Capitol and the National Mall.
Authorities continued to erect fences, set up road blocks and boarded up building across much of downtown DC on Thursday in a bid to fortify the capital ahead of next week’s inauguration.
Banning access to the National Mall, which is where crowds usually gather during inaugurations, is the latest security measure to be announced, sources say. Access to the Capitol grounds and Washington Monument is already prohibited.
The move comes as security continues to intensify in DC with up to 20,000 National Guard troops being called in to protect and fortify the capital and law enforcement on heightened alert over possible armed protests and attacks.

There are many speculations on what might happen in DC in the next couple of days but we can all agree on one thing something big is about to happen.
