Based on observations of the policies of my own government, I viewed this action as an acceptable option.
Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or ill it teaches the whole people by its example.
Additionally, borrowing a page from U.S. foreign policy, I decided to send a message to a government that was becoming increasingly hostile.
When an aggressor force continually launches attacks from a particular base of operations, it is sound military strategy to take the flight to the enemy.
Bombing the Murrah Federal Building was morally and strategically equivalent to the U.S. hitting a government building in Serbia, Iraq, or other nations.
I explain this not for publicity, nor seeking to win an argument of right or wrong, I explain so that the record is clear as to my thinking and motivations in bombing a government installation.
