This happened just when many service men and women were getting ready to leave for Iraq or Afganistan. . . .

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families involved.

Ok, the shooter was a shrink. Trained by the Army. As a Major in the Army, he was supposed to be above reproach. Looks like they need to rethink that policy.

Oh wait, he was a shrink. They are all crazy anyway, that's why they get into head shrinking.

I have family & friends in Kileen that work at Ft Hood. All are safe, my prayers go out to the families of the victims.

Shooter needs to be dealt with the Military way. Out back with one bullet.

This is very frustrating. Our society is so damn afraid of offending muslims. Even one that for the last year has been spouting anti-American crap and supporting suicide bombing radical islamics even when the idiot is in our own freaking military. We dare not even hint the word terrorist or tell our higher ups about the guy as ever freaking pinko commie fag liberal and their lawyers will say we are hate mongering sterotyping racisit. Thirteen Americans were killed an countless others wounded because we have become too damn afraid to call a spade a f**king spade.

As a friend of mine put it...Here is a guy that was born in the US. The Army paid for his undergraduate and medical degrees, and then he decides that he doesn't want to deploy. If he wanted to protest the wars, why didn't he just refuse orders, go to jail, and call 60 Minutes? Or he could have set himself on fire in protest (like the Buddhist monks during Vietnam). But, that's not the Muslim way. Instead, he has to kill innocent people to make his point. Since the President has vowed to uncover every detail of this incident, they better vigorously interrogate his ass when he wakes up.

AMEN!!

This is very sad.

Not that things like this should make sense, it defies logic more so than it could. This is not the sort of thing one expects from an Officer, let alone one who has achieved the rank of Major. Wink I suspect, he has been demoted to "buck private" by now... so lets address him by his current rank.. Private E-1.

I don't have a (personal) problem calling idiots what they are, whatever flavor they might happen to be.

I'm not a prejudicial type of guy but I do tout myself as being an equal opportunity offender. I'm prejudiced against A-Holes in general.

Overgeneralizing a certain segment of the population isn't fair either.

It's safe to say I'm pro military (a great number of ringers are).

I spent most of my military years at Hurlburt Field, home of the 1st Special Operations Wing.

I worked with a multi-service multi-national group of special ops men an women.

That being said, one of my closest friends was an AF Major of Russian dissent, who spoke fluent English, French, Russian and Chinese.

He was a distinguished F-15 pilot.

He also happened to be one of the guys that debriefed Victor Belenko (the Soviet that defected with a MIG 25).

The guy had a very Russian sounding surname.

Should he have been labeled a pinko commie f@g because of his heritage?

Certainly not.........................................

BBQMAN, the overgeneralization is hyperbole to be sure borne out of utter frustration but what isn't hyperbole is our over sensitivity to certain segemnts of the population such that we put ourselves in a no win situation and innocent people die. I make no apologies for that my friend.

Perhaps it is coincidence.. this happened on an odd numbered day, of an odd numbered month.

Please adjust your posts where they touch on religion and politics.

This incident was a terrible one; no matter who or what religion the person that committed it is.

My heart goes out to the innocents and their families, and my family and I were as shocked as the rest of the nation to see this happen.

Forum policy dictates that I am as unbiased as possible but maintain fairness to all, and so I ask that all those who have referenced either politics or religion in their posts, remove those references themselves so that I am not the heavy hand of the forum returning this thread to stated forum policy!

Your understanding on this matter would be appreciated.

Not related at all.

Said suspect has a Hispanic last name which makes no difference. I would jump to the conclusion "disgruntled former employee" rather than "illegal alien".

Ft Hood shooter is a Muslim (as reported in the media & was looking for a Muslim woman for a spouse). Was upset about deployment to Iraq. Shooting US Soldiers is in the playbook of the terrorist's, along with infiltration of the US Military.

Said shooter at Ft Hood was a shrink dealing with psych problems from other soldiers. Some think the shooter went off their meds & went "postal". From the media reports I don't think he just went postal, but will reserve judgment until his trial begins. Was he a criminal, yes absolutely. I'll leave it at that to remain PC.
