It started at Ruby Ridge. A guy took his family to the middle of nowhere to get away from those he believed were trying to stoke a race war (any questions when you consider the modern day?), and they followed him there.
After the bad press of killing Weaver's wife and son, they needed a win, so they picked a group of “freaks" in Texas who weren't worshipping the “right way.” Should David Koresh have been arrested and the charges investigated? Probably. Then why didn't they do that when he was jogging? Or when he went shooting with ATF agents days before the ATF raid? They wanted a show.
Evidence shows the ATF shot first, killing Fawn, an Alaskan Malamute, and her 4 pups who were locked in a pen. Sound familiar? When an army shows up at your door shooting first, what do you do?
The FBI and ATF laid siege on the Branch Davidians for 51 days until they decided to attack their home with tanks using a flammable propellant to inject 2 days worth of CS gas into the house in under 4 hours. FBI flashbang grenades were found at the starting point of each fire that eventually combined into one.
If David Koresh was such a threat to his own people (like we're told Saddam was, and Assad is), why not remove him from the situation? Why escalate to where the situation ended up… in the death of 76 men women and children?
And why when the building caught fire did the Feds not try to save them? Why did FBI agents take trophy photos in front of the ashes? Is that what you want your “security force” to do, be proud when they kill 76 Americans?
