This is horrible.

One point that I would like to bring up though is that the shrinks are the craziest SOBs themselves.

Very horrible and also very strange.  We can expect Obama to politicize this.  I wonder how they will spin it.

OK, I'm going to put on my "politically incorrect" hat now, and I don't give a damn, because I'm gonna say what most are probably thinking.

...Terrorist act?

Is it mere coincidence that the shooter has a middle eastern name?  Why is it that the first thing that came to my mind prior to hearing "the rest of the story" is "I wonder if this was perpetrated by an Islamic person or sympathizer?" 

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck...

QUACK, QUACK  CONFIRMED!!!!
 
These people are so brainwashed and programmed by their religion the only way to successfully fight them short of annihilation is to use their religion against them.  Make sure that they know that we will do EVERYTHING in our power to prevent them from their promised 27 virgins.  Even if it means picking up body parts with tweezers to desecrate!  War is war damn it and we're the only ones who even try to play by rules.  It cost us dearly every time.  We need to make it perfectly clear that we will not hesitate to use any such tactics if our opponents cross that line!
 
As far as Hasan is concerned, pack that sucker in pig sh*t before burying him!

I imaging the announced he was dead to prevent an angry mob.... and then retracted it now saying he is alive.  Can you imagine what they are going to do to this guy if they get ahold of him?

Bolstering Ted's thoughts, read these excerpts today, source was on-line World News so accept with a grain of salt:
 
 
 
"Lt.-Gen. Robert Cone told NBC's Today show that the shooter shouted "Allahu Akbar!" - Arabic for "God is great" - before he began firing."
 

"U.S. military officials said Hasan had come to their attention at least six months before the attack because of internet postings that appeared to come from him that discussed suicide bombings and other threats. Officials are still working to confirm Hasan's connection to the postings, but an official investigation was never opened.

One of the postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

"He is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause," the posting says."

Of course soon we will be hearing how it is our countries and the military's fault that he became the way his is. 

The media will sympathize more with him and how hard life must have been being a muslin in the US military over all the people he killed and their families. 

Same damn story every time some whack job does this.

Got this Email from Gabe Suarez.
What (Really) Killed The Helpless US Military Victims At Ft. Hood.

By Gabe Suarez

First of all to say the word "helpless" in the same sentence as "US Military" is ridiculous, but there it is. Specially if the sentence is one about the terrorism at Fort Hood, the largest military installation in the nation. The question we need to answer is who killed those american soldiers at Fort Hood. Let's see if we can answer the question without the mental disease of political correctness, or the guts-deficiency syndrome typified by the symptoms of over-tolerance, egalitarianism, and over-sensitivity.

First off, Islam killed the victims at Ft. Hood. Islam is a cult of death and violence. Its victims around the world are only at peace when they submit unconditionally to its excesses, or when they are dead. What was it that Hasan said? "We love death more than you love life".  What is reasonable man to make of that? All americans should read Robert Spencer's excellent book - The Politically Incorrect Guide To Islam and the Crusades. 
 
The message that men like Hasan send us is that the only peace-loving muslim is a "muslim in name only". Their religion demands conversion, or subjugation of the infidels. Just as there are CHINOS (CHristians In Name Only) that blaspheme and sin daily, there are MINOS (Moslems In Name Only) that really don't want to hurt anyone....the problem is in knowing which is which. A Christian-in-name-only will not be a threat to society when he goes "devout". What does Hasan's example tell us about a muslim going "devout"?  
 
Whenever I hear someone discussing "tolerance", I would ask them if a Jew could open up a Synagogue in Iran, or if Chuck Smith could hold a Christian church gathering in Syria?
 
No?  Then WE are not the intolerant ones are we?
 
Secondly, the US Government killed those victims. The US Government, in its endless quest for egalitarian, feel-good, political correctness and refusal to name the enemy ignored the fact that we are in fact in a Fourth Generational War  against Islam's desire to take over the world, and allowed this to happen.
 
Had Hasan been a devout Christian that spoke up against homosexuality in the military, he would have been summarily discharged...maybe dishonorably. Instead, as an outspoken radical muslim that kept contact with extremists, and that hated the west and infidels....questions abot him were dismissed, and he was promoted and given choice assignments.

Third responsability goes to whomever was in overall command of Ft. Hood.  They are also responsible for the deaths of the victims by denying soldiers the very human right of self defense.  A right, incidentally, that is recognized as soon as one leaves the gates of the fort and enters the land of Texas. What might have happened had Hasan's first intended victim been armed with an M9? How many innocents might have been saved had Hasan been shot to the ground between his "Allah Akbar" and his first shot? 
 
That their silly regulations make no difference at all (and have never made a difference in such events anywhere or anytime) are clearly evidenced by the fact that Hasan brought his weapons on base with no problems or interference. 

The last responsibility in a long chain of culpability is Hasan himself. The spear point of a Fifth Column alive, and well, and thriving in America.  Allowed to thrive because of an ever-present fear by Americans of being called a racist, or intolerant.  A terror shared even more intensely by every poor brow-beaten government worker in fear of their career.
 
Hasan was a clear and present danger to America, that was promoted to Major instead of being summarily dismissed. Hasan was a buck that was endlessly passed, lest any of his commanding officers be thought unkind, insensitive, or horror of horrors....a racist. Hasan, a murdering, cowardly terrorist, acclaimed a hero by other terrorists, did exactly as his beliefs demanded....he successfully made war on the infidels. 

Lessons learned? There won't be any. The lessons of this event are already known by any who would read this, and will be constantly ignored by those who should read it.

Get ready for the next one...Mumbai is coming.

$995 and a free AK47.  Cool  -  I'd love to take one of his classes sometime or for that matter some of the different sniper classes out there.

Email I recieved from a friend.
 
 
----------------------------------------------------
 
 
Ft. Hood
 
A man had a tv on in his office when the news of the military base
shootings came on. The husband of one of his employees was stationed
there.
He called her into his office and the minute he told her what was going
on,  she got a text message from her husband saying, "I am okay."
The cell phone started ringing right after that. It was an ER nurse.
She said , "I'm the one who just sent you a text, not your husband."
She thought the message would be comforting, but she immediately
knew she had to let the wife know what was going on. She said, "I am sorry
but your husband has been shot 4 times and he is in surgery."

The wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan and drove all night.

Miraculously, here is the photo I just received from my brother that was
taken today in the hospital room. He is awake and will recover. His wife,
who lives in Dothan, made it to Ft. Hood about the time he was waking up.

Thought I'd share this great outcome.
