Lest We Forget: 25 Years After The Waco Siege Started

On this day, exactly 25 years ago started the Waco siege. The Bureu of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm raided the Branch Davidian compound on February 28, 1993. The tragically unprofessional operation resulted in the death of six Davidians and four ATF agents. The evolving siege lasted 51 days. On April 19 the compound engulfed in fire and 76 more people, including 20+ children and two pregnant women died. This operation was probably the biggest overreach of government aggression and absolute unprofessionalism in US history.

David Koresh was by no means an exemplary person. By today’s words, he literally cucked men in the sect, had 19 wives, one of them 12 at the time of marriage. He was a freak. However, what the ATF and FBI did is tragic and unacceptable.

There is a six-part miniseries in the matter titled ‘Waco’. We do recommend it to anyone interested in this tragic event that never should have happened.
