The mini series that was on Paramount about a month ago, finally got around to see it. Pretty good over all, the FBI and ATF are pigs, they martyr Koresh a bit too much (he was a pedophile), but yeah, pretty good mini series.

All these years later and I still don't get the criticism of the government. The government spent a month and a half trying to get the morons inside to surrender. That's long enough to listen to Stairway to Heaven ... twice.

I'm not sure wtf you wanted the government to do.

If I had been President, I would have bombed the fuck out of them before nightfall on day 1.

I dunno, I guess the government shouldn't have killed 90 people including 25 children to make a point.

The point was that you must obey the law. Taking up arms against the government gets your ass killed. The Bundy clan and all the armed retard rednecks that supported him should have been strafed by A-10s too. You want to be a rebel, you can die like one.

"I met a few surviving branch davidians at dragon con in the mid 90'z"

That story left me wanting more.

From wikipedia: There was a search and arrest warrant. But the davidians did not respect that and killed four ATF agents.


They should have let the police search the place and make the arrests.

lawl. failed troll.

Koresh offered to let ATF inspect their weapons. They refused, because they wanted to play raid the bad guy. These faggots wanted tanks and SpecOps based on outdated reports of a meth lab, they were refused.

They rolled in heavy anyway, with bad surveillance and prepped for battle. They sent in a fucking dog team immediately, and fired the first shots.

At no point during the outset were any attempts made to negotiate by the ATF.

correct, they didnt break any laws. if anything koresh eloped with a 14 year old but that is legal under texas law so long as parents agree with it, which they did.

it was a show of force that was meant to be easy but turned into a massacre and the feds fucked up.
