    I don't think anyone's disagreeing with you. I understand why the BLM backed down.  They weren't willing on that day to put people's lives (theirs and his) at risk for what boils down to a repo job.

    20 years is how long it has taken to go through all of the legal process and for the government to get to the point where they had no other option.

    Bundy's supporters (and Fox News) desperately wanted this to be another Ruby Ridge, to motivate and inspire another generation of anti-government wackos.  The BLM showed admirable restraint to avoid that outcome.

    I'm sure the BLM will either be back, or they'll find another tactic to use (like freezing assets or erecting fences) in this matter.

    Live to fight another day.
