Sounds more akin to Rajneeshpuram than Waco, but the whole Rajneeshpuram thing didn't end well for anyone.

I know, right?

And Rajneeshpuram was indeed an epic clusterfark, right down to infecting several restaurant salad bars in The Dalles with salmonella in the hopes of preventing people from voting in an upcoming election.

Why are those the only two options? You can think Koresh was a nutjob who deserved a couple to the back of the head but also realize that LE could have handled it much differently and completely avoided a standoff. Same overzealous bullshiat that led to the MOVE bombing.

They (law enforcement) burned up children on purpose. I know. I taught tactics like this in the military. I saw it as it was happening. It was intentional. They waited for the windiest day they could, they punched holes into the building to build a chimney effect, and they pumped flaming tear gas into the building, to make sure they burned every person up. The U.S. were the criminals there.

They are going to be murdered by the federal government?

/reads article

Nope, a large group of people decided to go for a protest march after one of their members was arrested and the authorities tried to prevent them from marching, inciting violence until the people were successfully prevented from exercising their rights and were confined to their property.

Am I reading this correctly? And what the hell is a pandit?

Sending a message to the American people, of what might happen if they ever got certain dangerous ideas in their heads.  You know, things like liberty, freedom, limited government, and other such things that are so very inconvenient to the rulers.

I can believe that someone in Washington would order the compound taken. I can believe that mistakes were made in the taking of that compound. But I just can't believe that the ATF on the ground would have gone for that.

Zooming in on Vedic City in with satellite view shows all sorts of weirdness. In the northwest corner of the town, there's an area that looks an awful lot like military barracks (or a concentration camp).

Then there's a giant mandala on the east side.

I was under the impression the the Branch was given ample time to vacate.
come out with your hands up, let the women & children go.

I think the blame falls on those that put women & children on the line of fire.

I grew up about an hour from Fairfield, (kick, replies) and even lived there for a couple of years later on as an adult. Lots of woo up there, what with Maharishi International University and all...of all the things I would think might happen there, some sort of guru uprising would have been the last.

Granola shortage causing panic in the streets, maybe.

CSB.  Before it went all Majarishi crazy, my dad went to school there when it was known as Parsons College.  The school went broke later and was bought by the Majarishi so that people could meditate and learn to levitate.

Federal agencies are far more concerned about looking weak on TV than how many civilians they burn.  No federal agency ever has shown evidence to the contrary.  If you have any examples of a federal agency acting like a human being, I'm all ears.
