    Re: Seven arrested in FBI raids linked to Christian militia group

    I'd have no problem with raids being made on Moslem militia groups planning attacks on Christian or any other target. As Pete pointed out, such raids have taken place. Did you, American, complain when these raids took place? In the interests of balance, of course.

    I know nothing of the Hutaree, but if they are armed to the teeth (no doubt claiming their Second Amendment rights) and planning attacks on anyone, they need to be taken out.

    Which aspect of the raid do you find troubling?

    In these others raids at least alleged crimes were committed, I see nother here to indicate that.

    So....what did they do wrong? I suppose they should feel lucky that they weren't barricaded into the building as the ATF set it on fire and prevented their escape.

Quick look away while the government deals with it....no peaking!

    Apparently we don't have any leftwingers in the military who would join any kind of suspicious groups.

    This is true. When a Muslim group is acted against by the federal govermment -- especially if that federal governmenr was headed by GWB -- there was an immediate stink raised by the liberal left.

    Christians? Well, that's OK.

    Furthermore I don't see where the militia group broke a law.
    The indictment specifies seditious conspiracy, conspiracy to use a WMD, teaching how to use explosives, and 2 counts of use of a firearm in comission of a felony.

    Probably dont have many "left wingers" that join the military then join suspicious groups

    They go to university then join suspicious groups like the ETA for example

    Environmentalists are not likely to join the US military, then go and join the ETA

    I mean in general. There are authentic groups which really do pose a threat. But for the most part, I think the government is looking to catalog and database anyone and everyone whom has said something bad about the government; left-wing or right-wing or no-wing...doesn't matter. They want people on lists, they want all their information gathered and kept centrally, etc. And if people do things the government doesn't like; damned their rights, they're a terrorist or some other buzz word which means that we don't think about what we're doing or if it's right.
