From Waco to Libya: 18 Years of Humanitarian Mass Murder

There is a great article today from Anthony Gregory about the hypocrisy and deception behind government and 'humanitarian intervention' at home and abroad.

By the way, today is the 18th anniversary of the U.S. government's humanitarian intervention in Waco, Texas. And what Uncle Sam and his pals in the corporate media told you about happened during that intervention, is a steaming load of Texas' cowpie.

“The Davidian cult in Waco was dealt with by armored vehicles,” remarked Muammar Gaddafi in February, defending his own crackdowns in light of the U.S. government’s. April 19 marks eighteen years since the end of the Waco siege and exactly one month since Obama began bombing Libya. Now that the federal government is again shedding blood in the name of humanitarianism, we might reflect on how it obtains legitimacy for its most brazen acts of violence.

If you want to know what really happened at Waco, Texas 18 years ago (i.e. government-sponsored mass-murder of peaceful men, women and children), you need to watch the Oscar-winning documentary, Waco: Rules of Engagement.
