Gaddafi - just doing what ATF did in 1993

Libya's Colonel Gaddafi has to import poor mercenaries and promise them thousands of dollars for every Libyan they kill in order to try to keep control of his ever narrowing circle of influence.

He threatens civil war, just like statists left and right threaten it in this country if they can't get their way. Gaddafi wants to keep his family and his tribes' control over Libya. Demopublicans want to keep it over America. Don't get too uppity, or you know what will happen to you. Definitely, don't talk about having your own little nation with your own wacky rules and if you do, don't have a legally licensed gun dealer operating out of your home or office.

Monday, February 28 marks 18 years since the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms attacked the Branch Davidian home and church outside of Waco, just because they needed a "target" to practice their new "National Response Plan" bringing teams from several cities together. The ATF agents fired from helicopters killing two and fired at the group's leader David Koresh as he tried to take the search warrant at the front door, mortally wounding his father-in-law. (Of course, said search warrant was never produced, allegedly being "all shot up" in the truck.)

Is that really that much different than what Gaddafi is doing now? Terrorizing the nation.

More than anything it was the massacre of the Davidians on April 19, 1993 that convinced voters to elect Republicans to take over Congress in 1995. Just like G.W. Bush's murderous and wasteful wars on Afghanistan and Iraq convinced them to elect Democrats in 2006. Just like Obama's continuation of those wars, his massive bank bail out and massive new health care bureaucracy terrorized millions into voting Republicans to power in the House and many state houses in 2010. How long will the cycle continue before Americans revolt against a massive welfare-warfare state? How far will we be driven into poverty and slavery? Time will tell...
