    • Cliven Bundy is appealing for help to stop the Federal Bureau of Land Management and the FBI from removing his 900 cattle
    • He claims his family have owned 600,000 acres of Gold Butte since 1870
    • The federal government claims that the cattle are trespassing and have seized about 350 of the animals
    • Heavily armed federal officers equipped with 9 helicopters and backed up with snipers have have removed hundreds of the cattle
    • Claims of violence against the agents have spurred private militias to pour into the area

    Or perhaps some of our MPs can push for a resolution expressing "considerable concern" at police brutality in the US against civilians, on the lines of the the bipartisan resolution that was introduced by Congressmen Keith Ellison from the Democratic Party and Joe Pitts from the Republican Party last November.

    :lol:

    Victory! Nevada's last rancher gets his 'stolen' cattle back after federal agents agree to back down in 'range war'

    • Bureau of Land Management would not enforce court order to remove cattle and was pulling out of the area
    • Politicians have compared the standoff to Tienanmen Square
    • The Bundy family says they've owned the 600,000 acres since 1870 but the Bureau of Land Management says they are illegally grazing
    • The dispute began in 1993 when land was reclassified as to federal property to protect a rare desert tortoise, the government claimed
    • Federal officers stormed the property this week with helicopters and snipers to back up about 200 armed agents
    • They have reportedly seized around 350 of Cliven Bundy's 900 cattle
    • Cattle were handed back to rancher after tense standoff
    • Tensions escalated after private militias poured in to support the family

    The federal gunmen release all the cattle that they had robbed from the rancher.

    Lesson?

    If you are nice with the US government, it will treat you like dirt. Don't be too nice or polite with anybody - it is often mistaken as a sign of weakness. Keep them on their tows, and dig in your heels when it makes threats. The best weapon to fight the US government is information, and the challenge is to overcome the propaganda blitz and echo chamber that it creates using media control.

    The real reason could be this:

    BREAKING: Militia Arrives at Bundy Ranch - YouTube

    Two points:
    Suspected plans for mining weapons grade minerals, and hence, the water of the Virgin River is required.
    Many of these gunmen could be mercenaries, suspected to be Blackwater types.

    This woman, Sara Weaver, was terrorized by federal thugs, and her family destroyed, in a situation that escalated just like in Nevada, but unlike Nevada, actually ended up worse.

    You think this is a stupid post?!!!!!

    1) This post has been made in Americas thread, which makes the post relevant.

    2) This incident shows what a democracy may become, if the Govt. is not questioned by citizens. Or did you miss the fact that the Govt., whatever the hidden motive may have been, unleashed a havoc on a citizen? Or would you have preferred had the tasers been guns?

    3) Or did you miss the fact, when this MAY not be an interesting post for Indian fora, the mainstream news of USA had given it a pass?

    4) Or did you miss so many times the saviour of freedom has encroached on other nations' sovereignty to teach the value of personal freedom? Or so much preaching to us Indian they have poured down?

    As a matter of fact, the Point No. 1 alone makes it relevant enough, that calling the post stupid makes one wonder about some people's ability of comprehension or bias.

    FoxNews really played this up and news media becomes larger part of the story. The issue of grazing rights and fees can be settled in the courts. I have no doubt federal agencies needed this (temporary) setback, but Senate majority leader Harry Reid says, "It's not over" and we know he is a vindictive man.
