There were folks on the outside all but begging (or actually begging) Koresh to send the children out--and he would not.<quoted text>It's not like we could expect the government to say, "Hey there are kids in there. Let's find a way to get Koresh without getting any of them hurt." Right?
No, that would have made too much sense and required a certain measure of morality.
And the evidence showed that accelerant (like gasoline) was spread INSIDE the compound.
Now, your thinking is that folks like Koresh should just be identified as crazy before they have a chance to build a store of arms and a cadre of followers, and he should be locked up in a state hospital, right?
Explain exactly what that looks like.
