    I watched this event on TV 18 years ago. I thought 51 days and millions of $$$ was enough of a wait. I was relieved when tear gas was used, even though I was shocked at the loss of life. However it was all on the shoulders of Koresh, the murderer. He fought my constitutional government back in the days when it actually effectively governed.
