Except people like you are suggesting we profile people who have brown skin and are Muslim.

If someone robbed a store and was said to be black, does that make it right to stop every single person who is black until the perpetrator is found?

Now if he was black, wearing a red hoodie, and white sneakers I can see that. But you can't just profile someone for being of a certain color.

Most people can't tell the difference between and Indian and an Arab.

If this name is correct of the shooter, Malik Nadal Hasan. He possibly didn't want to be deployed because of how the people of Iraq and Afghanistan would treat him. I could only imagine how afraid he could have been. To know that he had to go, and there was no way out of it.

No, absolutely not. This is no longer Vietnam. While there are some cases of people breaking out into violence out of fear of deployment.. this is just not the case anymore Army doesn't work like that now, it's actually quite easy to skirt a deployment if someone Really wanted to do so. Simply proving your instability is reason enough, and it's not very difficult.

It's a coordinated event, the origins are unknown and we will never know what's happened. The media is already playing the angle they want, and they will not change it from now on because they've invested into the story as much as they ever will.

Ever heard about mid-life crisis?
If you didn't -- lucky you.

I do believe it was a terrorist attack, though.

A Medical Doctor opening fire on a forced innoculation center. This may be more relevant than even the Islamic angle. It also means those wary of vaccines will probably recieve more attention from authorities than usual. This will pave the way to putting more people on terrorist watch lists. Seems convenient. You would have to have ice flowing through your veins to attack Fort Hood. What kind of people are so calculating? Hmmmm.

IMHO, some of you folks ought to at least let the gun barrels cool down before you start trashing soldiers in general. Or muslims in general for that matter.

Yeah, KARMA'S a bitch. Keep that firmly in mind, and drive on.



Amen Brother.

There's no need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

I wonder if this would have happened under Bush, or is it just an Obama societal moment... Just a thought because as soon as I heard of it, I thought of Obama and how he doesn't support the troops in Iraq or Afghanistan. Military morale sucks right now.

Odd, I don't recall mentioning any skin color whatsoever.

You want to jump me, at least address something I actually said.

This isn't the first time a soldier of a particular belief has killed other soldiers.

There is a thing called a base common denominator.

WHAT is the common denominator here?

I hope he and the thousands of soldiers there are alright. Our soldiers should not have to worry about being killed before they get overseas. 31 people injured. 2 suspects in custody and 1 shooter dead...


It looks like the war has just come home.
I am saddened to here about all loss of life...

I was under the same impression but never having served I could well be wrong. I thought that if you entered the Army with a professional degree and used that degree in your Army profession that you entered as an officer.


The same is true if you go through ROTC, but you enter as an Entry level Commissioned Officer. In the Army, that rank would be a 2nd Lieutenant, and I've met some Army Lt's who still have that hot-shot immature attitude, hence why I originally thought that this shooter was a low-level Officer. A Major on the other hand is an O-4, which is the equivalent to a Lt. Commander in the United States Navy.

However, if this guy was in fact a PhD Medical Doctor before enlisting, the highest he would've gone in as would be a Captain, and in that case, yes, he could have made Major in four years or so. Regardless though, I really do not expect such a thing from a Major.

No matter what religion you beleive in. Christians, Muslims, Jews and others are all alike once they join the army. THEY ARE ALL KILLERS. Some have killed many and some have killed none. Nonetheless they fight for the same cause amongst their comrades. Seems like the major lost his faith fighting for the cooperations of america and left somewhere a note which TPTB are now desperately trying to find and destroy and turn this into a religious thing.

Sad story realy. This will be another nail in the coffin for this world. Keep going like this. Can't wait till humanity destroys itself.

Just a random, perhaps wild thought...is this a new tactic by the Islamic Terrorists? Infiltration? There are two existing threads about the Afghan and Iraqi security forces being infiltrated by terrorsits. Now we have the POSSIBILITY that this mass murder was committed by a person who converted to Islam?

I'm not running with this, I'm just putting it out there:


Not new. One of the Ret. Generals they interviewed early on said they have been attempting to get people in our military's for a long time.
