But others said from a tactical standpoint, the government’s cautious response would make sense no matter who was holed up in the government building in the reserve.
That is not true. If it was Occupy Wallstreet occupying the government building, they would have won the first round against corporate America.
As it was: the strategy of the militia was such that the fact the ranchers reported to prison made the militia’s strategy one of loosing, instead of winning.
The Militia is against the government of the USA, but pro-corporate America.
Oregon and the local ranchers won this round.
