However, Ruby Ridge was a TOTAL LOSS for Randy Weaver. Ask that man if he thinks he WON anything when he takes time to give memorial to the graves of his wife...and son. He got something back for what he lost, in ways that can never touch the true loss he endured....but he lost almost everything he had in life which mattered. It was wrong, it was unjustified and it NEVER should have happened. Ruby Ridge was one of the few I'd say largely lived up to what it looked like.
Also, the Government window here is 12 months. That isn't arbitrary like prosters with lives to lead and homes to tend, waiting a year in limbo. The Government sought and got notice allowing total freedom of action on this matter for 1 calendar year.
Okay.. I'm totally confused. 50,000 is a number coming form what? What may be at some future fight or are you saying the one we just saw had 50,000 men and women under arms or within the group who was, and prepared to stand?
