McVeigh and his terrorist organization wanted to retaliate against the federal government for the massacre at Waco and they felt as if the deaths of hundreds of innocent people were a realistic way to do that. The date of April 19th was chosen because it was the anniversary of the siege of the Branch Davidians, as well as Patriots Day and the anniversary of the execution of high ranking CSA members.

The Turner Diaries played a big role in his life and he wanted to use it as a guide in the carrying out of his plan.

The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our heart. We are cut off from activity, from striving, from progress. We believe in such things no longer, we believe in war” (87-88). Paul was living life as a civilian for eighteen years, not knowing the horrors of the world, and as a young adult in the war, he witnessed his first horror, such as his first bombing, his first explosion, first exposure to numerous of dead bodies etc, which will traumatize him in future civilian life since one does not simply forget the first raw, gory images. The age of eighteen can be considered the age of a young adult that is still growing and experiencing life, and when teengaers are thrown into the abyss of war, it prevents young soldiers from striving and progressing; as being an adult is heavily weighed on an adolescent
