    Default Today in history

    April 19th marks multiple anniversaries:

    The Battles of Lexington and Concord

    The Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Nazis in 1943

    BATF's costly raid on the Branch Davidian Church in Waco (20 years ago, today)

    The gun turret explosion on the USS Iowa in 1998

    And sadly, the Oklahoma City bombing, in 1995.

    These:

    The Battles of Lexington and Concord

    The Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Nazis in 1943

    were the reason for this:

    BATF's costly raid on the Branch Davidian Church in Waco

    Nothing is lost in the symbolism the Govt uses.

    Sadly, the Waco raid prompted the OKC bombing.

    This is also the season of the Ruby Ridge massacre (April 18-30).

    Janet Reno was US Attorney General at the time and Eric Holder was deputy AG.... It would be wise to keep those events in mind as things continue to spiral out of control in these days...

    The initiated the raid in Waco using, as an excuse, the suspicion that children were being abused inside the compound...Then they raided the place and promptly killed those they claimed to be concerned about...

    Ruby Ridge was just plain murder on the part of the BATF, plain and simple...

    You are correct. The BATF set Weaver up and the FBI snipers performed the execution...
