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.

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.

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...

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.

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:
