Christian militia sought civil war with US government

POLITICS/RELIGION - 9 Christian people living in the Detroit area are in jail today charged with conspiracy to preparing to overthrow the U.S. government. Their plan was to kill police officers, attack police stations with homemade bombs and eventually expand their civil war to attacking the FBI, CIA and Homeland Security.

Their hope was to inspire other groups and individuals into a full scale Christian war against the US government with plans of installing a Christian fundamentalist government.

The Midwestern Christian militia members were lured out in a ruse by the FBI to attend a phony memorial service last Saturday and then arrested. Several other weekend raids netted the a total of 9 Christian militants.

According to a FBI source "they had enough firearms to make Sarah Connor jealous", referring to the mother in Terminator I and II.

"We basically set up a scenario where we were able to draw them all to one location," said Andrew Arena, head of the FBI in Detroit. "And the reason we did that was to obviously get them away from their weapons."

The nine members calling themselves the "Hutaree" ("Christian Warrior") were charged this week with seditious conspiracy, plotting to levy war against the United States, attempting to build and use weapons of mass destruction and other crimes. They planned to make a false 911 call, kill the responding police officers and set off a bomb at the police funeral to kill many more.

The plan was to begin during the coming weeks of April.

They were also plotting to blow up non-Christian schools with a high population of minorities, set fire to Mosques and Synagogues, kidnap and kill celebrities, build homemade missiles to shoot down airliners and assassinate CIA, FBI and Homeland Security officials.

Ringleader David Brian Stone of Clayton, Michigan, first start organizing the group years ago according to his ex-wife. The 9 members are:

David Brian Stone Sr., 44 (a.k.a "RD", "Joe Stonewall", "Captain Hutaree")
David Brian Stone Jr., 19 (a.k.a "Junior", "Jaggers", "BearBack" )
Tina Mae Stone, 44 (a.k.a. "T-Bod", "She-Stone")
Joshua Stone, 21 (a.k.a. "Josh")
Jacob J. Ward, 33 (a.k.a. "Jake", "Nasty Nate")
Thomas William Piatek, 46 (a.k.a. "T-Rock" )
Joshua Clough, 28 (a.k.a. "Azzurlin", "Az", "Mouse", "Jason Z", Charles")
Michael David Meeks, 40 (a.k.a. "Mikey" )
Kristopher T. Sickles, 27 (a.k.a "Pale Horse")

According to website photos however there are supposed to be 17 people (and a dog). Who are the other 8 people?

According to their website ( their slogan was "Preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive" and included several videos of training exercises set to German music. Their website also professes a hatred of the United Nations and vowing to create a "Colonial Christian Republic" which would expand Christianity through international war.

The FBI managed to discover the plot with the help of an undercover agent when it was determined the group was selling pipe bombs over the internet.

The number of Christian militias operating in the United States has grown in recent years, from 42 in 2008 to 127 in 2009. Police fear other Christian militia or so-called "Patriot" groups may become inspired to act.
