Yea there is a lot of jumping on the terrorism bandwagon here. The suspect is still in the hospital. He may just be insane. (which is my theory)

It could be radical Islam. But I don't think that there is some huge grand conspiracy to infiltrate our armed forces to plant Radical spies and saboteurs.

Many positions in the military call for something called an application for national security positions. This small booklet lets the military interview your friends and family in order to get a clear picture about a person joining up with the military.

Please look up incidents of islamic terrorism since 911. There have been many. They will continue no matter what your diagnosis is because muslims have a duty. This is a fact.

To that i'd simply answer: look up instances of american terrorism(not that you'll find it labeled as such) over the last 250 years.

It aint just muslims.

here is what I want to know, is Major Malik Nidal Hasan conscious?

I was watching CNN last night and they said he was in stable condition and he didn't want to talk...... so that would make him conscious.....

FOXNews conflicts with this report.... with:

Hasan was shot four times during the Thursday attack and remained unconscious early Friday.

So here's the deal... he's either conscious or unconscious?
who is telling the truth?

Naa no one has fooled him. Its you that’s being fooled.

As modern pointed out in his post that before 9/11 you never hear the scale of attacks compare to what’s taking place now.

It’s easy to pick 1 or 2 odd attacks which I could easily do regarding US aggression.

From dropping nukes to bombing the crap out of nations, US’s history is not very good either.

For those of you who still question the shooters motivation be assured that he was carrying out fard ayn. There are interesting books by Emerson and others about how deeply our military and government is infiltrated and how vulnerable we are. Be alert, protect each other.

I have tried to come in terms with your posts but the amount of ignorance you have displayed is kinda hard for me to digest.

IF he wanted to perform his ‘fard ayn’ properly he would have turned the whole military base into an ash tray.

WoW people. I see you all have managed to create one heck of a story line of a imagination.
From all the News and all other media i have seen so far. I only hear what we claim this to be. But the only fact so far is that some have died and the person responsible is in hospital. And not yet questioned.

Do we even have to question the Doctor at all in this matter. Its seams like we have already figured out everything. Plus the solution.

And people wonder why we can't trust the news. Well the news is. We create the news. Much in the same way we all spin up this imaginary story to what it has become.

posted on Nov, 6 2009 @ 02:41 PM
We are amazed that people in foreign countries want to defend their women and children against a murderous army. There is nothing civilized about the American occupation of Iraq or Afghanistan or the drone targeting of Pakistanis. There is nothing to gain for America by these wars, except for kissing up to the Rockefeller Empire which is certainly not in our best interests. The stronger the Rockefeller led UN becomes, the worse things become for America. War is bad. War is not inevitable. We have been brainwashed by our entertainment media to consider war to be inevitable. Human beings are so wicked that they CANNOT live peaceably, they are not capable of decent behavior. There for we always have to have wars. This is the BIG LIE of the last century. If our government is not bent on war, we can avoid it. Terrorist acts resulted in our being drawn into war. A lot of us believe that those terrorist acts were committed by our own government to get us into war. A lot of you don't seem to think so.
The point I am trying to make is that this particular presumed terrorist (he might not have done it, or he might have been hypnotized or brainwashed into doing it) (He does come from Virginia tech, possibly from MKUltra) The point I am trying to make is that if we weren't at war, we wouldn't be in this mess. Any WHY are we at war. Because some Rockefellers think it will help them in world domination. And that's all. It is ruining our country. It is killing our soldiers. It is wrecking our children's future. We don't need this war.
I don't think this is off topic because it is pertenant to this thread. We would not be here if we were not at war. We are supposed to be fighting terrorists that you might think exist, other than just the people who are defending their people from being killed by us. YOU may think we are threatened by terrorists. I don't happen to think so. But even if there were terrorists out there, this incompetent government is unable to deal with them. So this war is going to ruin us regardless. Except of course for the Rockefellers/Rothschilds/military industrial complex who will obviously benefit.
END THIS WAR. PLEASE END THIS WAR. So many people think this war should continue. They think we should send more troops to defend the troops we already have there. If we withdraw, short of being defeated like Vietnam, we can simply bring them home. Declare a victory, declare that we don't care what kind of govt takes over, its' none of our business and bring our troops home. So what if we don't leave a democratically elected government in place. Whatever is there beats more years of war and will end up there anyway.
This war is what causes this kind of incident (unless it is caused by MKUltra in which case allowing them to get their way using this kind of manipulation only causes them to do it again. 911 was enough. If Murrah had been properly investigated, 911 would never have happened. If we want our country back we have to stop MKUltra type activities and false flag attacks by bringing the perpetrators to justice.

I am adding this here because it would be off topic to put it by itself. But we fought WWII because Hitler wanted to dominate the world. But it turns out he was just a front for the Rothschilds/Rockefellers. So we really have a continuation of that struggle. Hitler was defeated,but he was just a front. This is why we are fighting, because they want world domination, but we are advancing their cause not opposing them. What is wrong with this picture.

Do you want me to start posting about the number of civillians killed by US bombs after 9/11?

I think just the amount of civillian casualities in iraq should be more than enough.

US has also given us an added bonus for making the world much safer now.The number of 'terrorists' have greatly decreased since 9/11.

Can we get back on to the topic, please?

i heard about this late last night and it sickened me. it is very sad as well. but it brings up valid concerns with the military. he is a muslim man who has been harassed for being muslim and middle eastern in the military. he dident beleive in the war, and stated so, or said things that angered other soldiers that heard them. he posted stuff on the net that fbi was looking at six month befor the shooting. it was plain this man ws not stable for deployment or to be in the military any longer. still no action was taken.

like i said this disgusted me not only because of the loss of life. but because. i can see the people playing this off as this man being a terrorist cell or something, and this giving way to fuel more anti-islam hate and bias.

when this could be a non terrorist realted incident but the fact that he is muslim he is suddenly a terrorist. if he was christian, jewish it would be a disgruntled soldiers are soldier suffering from ptsd kills others.

this whole mess sickens me

just so u know i got my info off of cnn last night. so befor u bash me are ask for a link i listened to anderson cooper say those things on cnn

This is too true and if I felt like betting, I would bet that TPTB want us not to know when we're hearing/reading truth and when we're not. If you don't know what to believe you can never formulate a plan of action.

There is nothing confirmed about this being a case of Islamic terrorism. So far, the allegations that he expressed support for martyrs was from a guy who heard it from a guy.

"Terry Lee, a retired Army colonel who knew Hasan, told Fox News about a story he heard secondhand. He said a fellow colleague had told him that Hasan had made “outlandish comments” about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and US involvement in them and that “Muslims had a right to rise up and attack Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Another thing to point out is that the infamous birther site World Net Daily already has tried to make a connection linking this guy and Obama. Let's avoid links that use that site as sources.

Most importantly is that Americans believe that we should open our arms and extend friendship at all costs, we open our hearts and doors and let these people in not knowing their intent.


Replace the word muslim with jew, and the word American with German and suddenly...well....

How very Nuremberg.

How very 1935.

There are 1.2 billion muslims in the world. You're blaming them all for this?

This is an atrocity. The person who carried it out happens to be muslim.

But, in case you forgot, let me remind you of Columbine.



Are you going to tar all non-muslims with the same brush as well?

Or maybe, just maybe, you could step back from the single issue vitriol and understand that people all over the world do crazy, stupid, vile, nasty and criminal things, and not just one branch of the worlds population.

Because if you don't, and you start blaming a whole swathe of people for the misdeeds of a few, and you get fanatical about it - well history has taught us that it ends up with genocides.

One man.
One gun.
His beliefs. His actions.
Severely, tragically misguided. Moments of insanity.

But one man.

Not 1.2 billion people.

The strange thing is many people realised about his unusual behaviour but no one came forward.

The colonel who commented on FOX News should also be questioned about why did he not take any action when a muslim MAJOR in US millitary made comments as he claims.

He is one of thousands of Muslims who have killed innocent bystanders in public places.

He was a well paid military professional who chose his path with full awareness. There is no ambiguity here this is someone who made a long preparation for a mission of destruction and death in the name of their faith. A faith that repeatedly tells it's followers it is their duty to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc.

No attempts to shift responsibility to the Rockefellers and the Iraq conflict or invoke fairy tales of brainwashing and hypnosis can change that.

There is war going on in the Middle East sparked by a major attack in 2001 that killed 3000 Americans. It is an attempt to prevent this kind of destructiveness from spreading further.

Easy to explain
but where's the islamic terroism attacks I asked for?

Ohhhh... you thought that these were it?

Ok let me try to explain it to you ok?
Why are only americans being targeted?
Why are only american embassies targeted?

because americans are infidels???

Sweeden is very christian, so christian to the point of even having many xenophobes there
aren't they therefore even more infidel-ish???
So why aren't they being attacked?

Italy has alot of catholics, why aren't they being attacked?
how come they didn't attack vatican city yet?
aren't the infidels too?

Southern ireland is very catholic, I believe nortern very protestant
why aren't they being attacked, they are infidels too no?
in fact southern ireland is almost a catholic theocracy
so they are one of the biggest infidels no?
but why aren't they being attacked?

Want more examples?

Not infidels, they hate our freedoms?
pshhh ya right, tell me if you follow current events and really value your freedoms are muslims really your primary concern?

Switzerland practices a form of limited govt.
so by definition they are way more free than americans
but they aren't being attacked

ok so we've ruled out infidels and freedom
so... what seperates America from the rest of the world?

Ohh ya... probably the over 800 bases in over 130 countries
probably because america is occupying almost every country on earth
probably the massive "Embassies" with 90% military personel that have so much influence over the country

Do you think?

If not, then please find something else other than the refuted "infidel" or "they hate our freedom" arguments to differentiate U.S. and UK from countries not involved in foreign occupation or war to help explain why they aren't being attacked?

btw, an american embassy in another country doesn't count, it's the same and even more their focal point.

Now that you perhaps understand more tell me this.

Let's say the middle east was america and america the middle east
middle easterns were attacked america and had bases all over
stole any form of natural resources
allowed only their allies and themselves to have nukes
proped up foreign govts. to ensure they act as puppet govts. including your own country
tell me... would America attack them in the same manner these individuals are attacking your soil?
