A Southerner, he obviously could not show he did not support slavery or the South (because he did)

Although he was a Southern sympathizer, Buchanan was from Pennsylvania. (OK, southern Pennsylvania).

Well, that's what I get for writing on the fly. Correction forthcoming.

It never occurred to Buchanan that residents of Utah would see his act of sending federal troops to Utah as anything other than a peaceful action.

Not to go off topic, but it sounds like Bush going into Iraq...

Seriously. This guy was either so woefully misinformed as to be a complete idiot, or actually an idiot. Putting aside for the moment the history of persecution the Mormons had faced and things like the Extermination Order, if Buchanan was really persuaded that the state of Utah was in rebellion, what on earth made him think federal troops would be welcomed with open arms?

umm.......eh...honestly....all ya all believe in religion? mormonism is your faith?
please...for the sake of sanity...empty your brainwashed minds and ask yourself-don't pray about it...REALLY ASK YOURSELF...."WHY DO i believe what a schizo grandiose story teller...a sweaty old bishop...and brainwashed parents(ya see...it's a nasty cycle)...why do i live for this?"
so...did you all ask yourself?
let me know if you can focus on that.

Ninny, you're not really the one to talk about "focus"; stream of consciousness writing isn't particularly impressive coming from an empty mind. Maybe all that college drinking is finally catching up with you. If you work on framing complete sentences ... well, who knows, a coherent thought may emerge someday.

From your comments, I'm guessing you're still working out your adolescent battles with authority figures. Good luck on growing up someday.
