Very well could be it. DOD and the VA need to start doing more for these soldiers coming back home. Heck, I don't even know if more counseling is even the answer but there's got to be an answer to stop this.

Ya know ?

With the current advancements of gunshot detection systems that can pinpoint 'active shooters' in a matter of seconds.

That give range, and bearing.

The events of today are ridiculous on so many levels, and should not even be happening.

Especially on military bases.

Just want to make it clear ,that as a fellow Muslim my self, this guys Actions are disgraceful ! I am disgusted by people like this who think it's ok to go out and do this!

No where in the scriptures does it say to go out and kill innocent people ,weather Christan,jew, ect ect....

I really don't understand the mindset of people like this ...the teachings are CLEAR basic Knowledge...

This guy is no MUSLIM that's for certain..

He's got a first class ticket to hell ..

Peace

LSH




With a name like Ivan Lopez, I very much doubt he was Muslim at all.


He could have been a convert like my self.
And taken knowledge from somone who is
Khawarij

"khawarij":From their essentially political position, the Kharijites developed extreme doctrines that further set them apart from both mainstream Sunni and Shiʿa Muslims. The Kharijites were particularly noted for adopting a radical approach to Takfir, whereby they declared other Muslims to be unbelievers and therefore deemed them worthy of death.

This could be.the case here , you don't see these types of people in the USA mainly because they perfer to live in countrys where muslim law is enforced....

That's why i can't wrap my head around the shooters actions... Why ? Why would he do this ..makes no.sens ....

Smh..

Offering thoughts and prayers to the entire Texas community, Obama pledged to do everything possible to ensure Fort Hood had everything it needed to weather a difficult situation and its aftermath.

What the hell were they saying about cutting ventilation?

Anyone else catch that?
edit on 2-4-2014 by Rosinitiate because: (no reason given)


CJ Grisham @cjgrisham We are only being told to "seek shelter, lock doors and windows, and turn off ventilation systems, heaters and air conditioners." #forthood


Yeah, that's oddly specific.

Is that standard procedure, or was there some reason to suspect airborne dangers?


Local news said this was standard protocol. Hope that helps.

Not in the clip I saw... That's a pool reporter's text, not a quote...

Maybe he did say something in that vein, I just didn't see it...

I can't speak for Fort Hood, but out of the 4 years I've been driving in and out of the post that I am at I have not once been searched. A decal on your car and a drivers license that gets scanned is sufficient to get on in a few minutes. If your vehicle is not registered on post, a DL, insurance card, and registration is needed. Not difficult.


I know this is from way back in the thread. I'm trying to catch up.

Just wanted to say that prior to 9/11, we used to say the only thing you needed to infiltrate Hurlburt Field or Eglin Airforce base was a pizza and a crappy car! They very, very rarely did more than wave as you drove by. Once in a great while they would put a hand up, walk over to the car and look in the window, then when they saw the pizza, you went right on through.

Totally different story after 9/11, but I'm sure enough time has passed now that it has relaxed back to near that level of comfort again.

Yes, but Soldier on Soldier dispute sounds better for the news and gets people to watch.

Whatever you want to call it, a tragedy is still a tragedy and violence is still violence, whether it's an accountant or a soldier, it's just bad.

Nice try! The Quran and the Bible are full of violence and followers in some examples are pushed in that direction.

Whatever you think a Muslim is or isnt fine.... The religion is antithetical to Western Democracy and moreover the founding principles of the USA. You have the right to practice your religion how you see fit. But don't make me cite examples of how even mild mannered Muslims are subverting and trying to supplant our American laws and culture. Foot baths in our air ports? Remember that one?



Your COMPLETELY WRONG! And obviously uneducated .

I haven't always been Muslim ,i was a Christan most of my life , and i used to think just as YOU ! .

But when i.decided to READ the quran ! and STUDY the religion ,and NOT take hearsay info! I was Shocked to find out this religion is of peace...


Let's get back on topic please

News reports saying soldier on soldier, resulting from a conflict ..

Also saying not sure if shooter killed himself (? )

Shooter is Army Specialist Ivan Lopez

Conference now

Scott & White (S&W) hospital live conference now...saying 4 there now and 2 en route now (by air). Chest and neck injuries. Transported by air and land.

Of the 4 they have, some had one gunshot wound and some had multiples. They are not mentioning deaths.

Some are at (sp?) Darnall facility in I think Killeen. S&W is a level-1 trauma center.

Now he is saying they had 11? I'm just a bit confused.

ETA: The four dead headlines seem to be disappearing. I think CNN first said that number. Let's hope that was not right.

With 14 'injured' and 4 dead sounds like it was more than just 'soldier on soldier' violence.

Of course that is if those numbers are accurate.

I am viewing the cable channels and it seems they are overflowing this incident.
It boils down to a relatively minor shooting incident so far not an incident at all like past mass events.

Strange…is this just addicted media wanting another story they can obsess over?

Everybody…chill out we can thank God that this looks like a relatively minor event.
It won’t be another national obsessional event like the missing plane and past events.

No Arab jihadi nut or mind controlled zombie killer here.

The networks can go back to the obsession with the missing plane.

It seems our fearless "Commander in Chief" has his priorities stright...



On Wednesday evening, President Obama was being kept up to date on the developments from the mass shooting at Fort Hood while reportedly attending fundraisers for the 2014 election cycle. According to White House spokesman Josh Earnest, Obama is in the loop while at the fundraisers.

Obama will be in Chicago for four and a half hours, and the events have largely been closed to the media, with radio and TV reporters banned from attendance. Only one print reporter will be allowed to provide press pool notes.

Disgraceful, to put it mildly...

BREAKING: Obama says he's following Fort Hood shooting closely, US will get to bottom of what happened.

Nice to know that he cares SO much about truth, justice, and the American way.

Sorry, no barf emoji to go along with this post...

Does his lack of action surprise you or anyone else anymore.

After the last shooting they should have had actions in place for this kind of situation by now.

The Homeland Security source, who stressed the information was preliminary, added that there was "currently no [counter terrorism] nexus" and said it appears the shooter killed himself.


www.foxnews.com...

So 'Homeland Security' coined that phrase ?

'Soldier on Soldier violence'.

That wreaks of politics.
