  •  Soo... It's a Good Idea to have (0+ / 0-)

    another Waco type debacle-- with 15-20 people dead?

    would that satisfy you?

    •  I actually think the outcome of this (0+ / 0-)

      will increase the likelihood of another Waco.

      This will only embolden the militia types.  They've been convinced for a long time now that they can take on the federal government if they so desire.  This will just reinforce that, and send the message that if you don't want to obey federal law, all you have to do is threaten armed resistance and the government will back down.

      Eventually, there WILL be another Waco, because some nutjob will be inspired by things like this.
