LMAO, so they are going to use it as an excuse to banish guns from the military?


Next thing you know they will take away their planes for crashing them.

Are you serious?


Way to miss the point.

The conversation at hand was about privately owned guns of military members.

On US soil perhaps what about the recent afghan mass attack? 17 US troops killed and 40+ wounded when taliban atatcked their remote outposts and most US rifles had stopped working.

Us Brits and Americans are suffering the msot military losses, it's time the rest of the world took a share of the load and pulled their leftist fingers out of their ass!

Piece of crap. That's funny because your "brothers and sisters" are the one that allowed the so called "piece of crap" to become a brother and sister. Statements like that show just how stupid many members of the military are. Brainwashed idiots if they think like you do.


Many here will try not taking that as a personal attack. Wasn't there a recent MOD warning?

Again, that's going to be kinda hard to do, given that there was no civilian involvement, at least that we know of. There's absolutely no way the government could pass a civilian gun ban in the wake of this event without a massive backlash both from the public and, believe it or not, a significant portion of Congress opposed.

Could be payback (blow-back)

Times online

“Behind this scene are the American and British intelligence apparatus and there will have to be retaliatory measures to punish them,” Mr Jafari said

The leader of iran’s Revolutionary Guard, dude named Mohammad Ali Jafari, promised "retaliatory measures" against US / UK for the Jundollah attack that killed six iranian commanders who were at a meeting.

5 Brits are killed while in a secure area, now this.

Proves nothing, but interesting... lets see how this scene from 'as the world turns' plays out... Cui bono remains to be seen.

I will not "chill" when i am in a "breaking news" forum and listen to the insults thrown out about our military when 12 of them were just murdered by dare i say Muslims. I will defend my brothers from attacks like this.

1st thing that came to my head.. quite strange...

i wonder if they raid the gunmen's apartment and find documents and recordings from Iranian military commanders proving they were behind it...

I like how FOX news on the tv is not releasing the name of the shooter because they are saying that the name has not been 100 percent confirmed yet

I hope I am wrong.....

I think this will degrade into a "muslim thing".
If so, a witch hunt on all muslims in the military?
Separate them from others???

I am glad I personally don't have to decide how to respond on this one, because no matter what is done, it will be seen as the wrong thing.
You mark my words.

Obviously, we must hold all judgement and action until we have "the whole story".

I don't believe this one will be swept under the rug. I believe this one will get ugly.

NBC News and msnbc.com
updated 5 minutes ago

A U.S. soldier opened fire Thursday at Fort Hood, Texas, killing at least 11 people and wounding 31 others, military officials said. The gunman was shot to death, and two others were in custody.

Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone, commanding general of the Army’s III Corps, who confirmed the shootings, said the gunman used two handguns. NBC News’ Pete Williams reported that a U.S. official identified the gunman as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan, who was 39 or 40.


________________________________________________________
Something is very wrong here. First it was a high powered assault rifle, now it's two hand guns. 42 people hit with two handguns. Either that guy was the best shot in the history of shooting, or this is a flat out lie.

Also, why now is there no mention of the other two in custody?

My thoughts and prayers go out to those poor shooters. They could have been living in their own purgatory feeling there was no other way out. Maybe they suffered from extreme PTSD. Maybe they saw their buddies head get blown off. Like you say we don't have any facts on this.


I've had 'bout enough. This was CLEARLY spoken by a man who's never had to DEAL with PTSD. Take your trash talkin' along now to another thread where it's welcome. Here's a lollypop for you to take back to your fantasy world.

PTSD is a problem that doesn't lend itself well to co-ordination, particularly of the variety which appears to have happened today. What you're doing here is walking over fresh corpses, and the memory of some long dead but not forgotten.

I'll see you around to argue some other time.

I don't doubt that America suffers from the "I can't see it from my house" syndrome - and that we tend to care if it is Americans and don't blink if it is another country with the loss....or even our territories.....

That said, it could also be due to the attention the media gives to domestic incidents like this. I almost wonder if you put something truly trivial on the news on every channel with breaking news, if we wouldn't - collectively, not all of us - get in a tizzy about it.

I'm watching the news to try to get news - which they don't seem to HAVE any - and noticed I was starting to feel rather nauseated. I turned it off,t he tragedy didn't go away, but the nausea did.
