OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (AFP) - The United States will mark the 15th anniversary of its deadliest domestic terrorism attack on Monday amid rising political tensions and anti-government sentiment that has terrorism experts on edge.

The April 19, 1995, truck bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in downtown Oklahoma City by members of an anti-government militia killed 168 people, including 19 children, and injured hundreds of others.

The tea partiers often mention a militia and for many this is the type of thing it brings to mind. I've never heard of a militia doing anything good for people.
