Hey pal, at the time I posted that question, the event was ongoing and the outcome was not known. At that point, the patriots were telling the sheriff to tell the feds to bring their weapons and deliver them under the flagpole. That is why I asked the question.
It turned out to be a significant event when the feds retreated, but when I asked the question it was unclear.
Trying to call me uninformed is a low blow. I thought we were on the same side.
Not quite. Again, you were clearly not paying attention.
What was known is before that BLM/arms demand was even uttered, thousands were pouring into the area, many armed, including many armed militia members.
What was also known is most close to the events understood early on, this was going to result in an armed standoff which had the real possibility of resulting in an ugly violent shootout. This was inordinately clear based on the fact those opposing government in this event, including Cliven Bundy, repeatedly stated they would not back down.
Regarding the one demand of BLM to give up their weapons, I said at the time, right here on this site, "That's as likely to occur as Obama joining the NRA". Most understood that wouldn't happen.
The main overriding demand was his animals be returned to Bundy out of impound. Their demand time frame was not met, and they went and got them...The rest is on-going history.
It's why many said early on, this was a historic event and will be one among many more to come.
Not at all sure why you are bent on attacking me for a question I asked a week ago, but if it makes you feel better, have at it.
I say again: I thought we were on the same side.
Not attacking ... 352 was just trying to explain that early on it seemed pretty clear this was really going to really heat up.
In fact due to being pushed into a corner for years, Bundy and family made it clear they’d totally had enough. To be honest I expected it to end violently...When the oppressors rolled over, it was clear they too believed he and many others weren’t bluffing.
