Ignorant of Bible
If Dick DeGuerin was waiting for Vernon Howell’s explanation of the Seven Seals, he is ignorant of the Bible and its teachings.
Only the second coming of Christ will reveal the mysteries that John saw on the Island of Patmos concerning the Seven Seals.
I’m so sick of hearing how wrong our FBI and ATF officers were with the handling of Vernon Howell and his followers.
The nut (Howell) and the people were warned. Those who got out, if they believe he (Howell) was so right, why didn’t they stay with him and die also?
I praise President Clinton, Janet Reno, FBI and ATF. They were more than patient with Howell and the others.
Now or later
The following hypothetical scenario assumed that (1) David Koresh had no intention of ever submitting himself to the justice system, and (2) upon his instruction, the fire was intentionally ignited from inside the compound.
Let’s suppose that the authorities took no action on April 19, and that we are now in day 50-something of the standoff. The feds decide to wait him out (as a large number of critics have suggested they should have) — say, six weeks, six months or even a year or more.
Eventually Koresh runs out of food and supplies, and he must make a decision to surrender or not. Given the above assumptions, I suggest that he would then do exactly what he did on April 19.
I further suggest that the same number of critics would then say, “Those worthless federal authorities. Why did they wait so long? Why didn’t they try to do something?”
