I see a change in military regulations to allow soldiers to carry live ammo while inside the USA in the immediate future. Nobody needs to be killed for any reason. This is a tragedy.

Not sure if it's worth mentioning... just wanted to add some information that I just received.


Can anyone say... Flu vaccination



Oooh Man! There's an angle I'm SURE the establishment would not want us hearing....

But frankly, I can't see soldiers being told to fo through the trouble of arming themselves just to get a flu shot.

Oh what a bunch of BULL#! No patriot is going perpetuate wanton violence on innocent people. Now if this same type of violence was perpetrated against Tim Geithner, Bernanke, congressman who voted for the bailout, Donald Rumsfeld, Chaney, Bush, hell even Obama than they might be thought of as Patriots. But innocents? No way! Innocents include women and children. remember that.

What is a PX?

For those who don't live there.


It's like our version of the NAAFI. I used to love my trips to the American PX when i served in Germany, everything was a fraction of the British prices and getting a McDonalds was like one big party! They just seemed so excited and enthusiastic!


Back on topic, there is lots of talk on the news about the possibility of soldiers with PTSD doing this. I think thats bad until they know for sure.

Soldiers with PTSD don't tend to organize a group rampage.

They are talking about the fact that there are so many armed soldiers there so God help the shooters, but it might not work like that. So much confusion will be at that place right now, i doubt they'll just let all the soldiers go hunting these guys down.

news.bbc.co.uk...


Army spokesman Lt Col Nathan Banks at the Pentagon told the Associated Press news agency the shootings had begun at about 1330 (1930 GMT) on Thursday at a personnel and medical processing centre at Fort Hood.

He said two shooters had been involved.

The second incident took place at a theatre on the base, he said.

I say take the soldiers out of lock down and arm them up. 35,000 armed soldiers vs. 1 or 2 shooters...

Watching Fox *GASP*. A general is saying that M16s were involved and that it is VERY easy to get on Ft. Hood and only a DL is required and there are a number of gates to get on.

Wow. Air Force is very different in regards to security. It is very hard to get on an AF base.

Retired General on the phone saying the weapons used were M16's, not that it means it's definately soldiers.

He also says that it's easy to get into Fort Hood, all you need is a driving license. Not neccessarily checked for weapons either.

Retired Army General Bob Scales has now raised the specter of this being some form of terrorist attack....


Interesting how this develops in the news room.... considering all the 'consultants' scrambling to add their .02

Listening to the Fort Hood police talk about going in with the SWAT team right now.

Not sure if it's an actual troop or not, but a call just came into the local PD that a man with a gun & fatigues is at the Dollar Store. SWAT & units from the base are being mobilized.

Geez

This is really outta hand at the moment

Hopefully the army base will learn not to be so complacent next time. How the hell did they get their hands on assault rifles and sniper rifles
