    You people who are attempting to turn this into a political issue have some serious fucking problems.

    I mean, I've had a few conspiracy theories in my life, but you all will politicize ANYTHING.

    The president went and visited the site of a terrorist incident and paid his respects, just like a President is supposed to do.

    So why don't you shut the fuck up and have some God Damn respect for the dead?

    K?

    Seriously. No more talk about "Who knew what?".

    This was a horrible murder.

    Do the words "too soon" mean anything to you people? Is there ANY subject that is verboten?

    "Bernard Goldberg, a former CBS News correspondent, took the media to task for its coverage.

    "What's the story line they run with? Religion? Of course not. Can't do that. He's a Muslim," he said Friday on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor." "They run with post-traumatic stress syndrome because that gives them a chance to take a shot at a couple of wars they never liked from the get-go."

    "Privately, top Army officers have acknowledged that the massacre may have been a terrorist act.

    "In a series of e-mails sent 24 hours after the shootings and obtained by Fox News, one colonel in a two-star command instructed subordinate officers: "Please send a message to our training centers, the (logistics support bases), and the (divisions) advising them of ...(their) responsibility to provide this command a status of their respective anti-terrorism plans."


    "The claim comes as officials in different branches of law enforcement and the military squabble over who knew what when about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's leanings toward faith-inspired violence, and as charges fly that 'political correctness' prevented officials from taking action and is still being used as a crutch in explaining the rampage after the fact."

    "But even after the attacks, some have been reluctant to cite religion as a factor, as evidence has mounted that the alleged gunman's Muslim faith was at least a partial factor in the decision to mount the attack."

    "Chicago Mayor Richard Daley pointed to America's "love" affair with guns as the driving factor behind last week's shooting at Fort Hood, becoming the latest and possibly most prominent figure to show a reluctance to cite religion.

    "Every day in society someone's being killed. Unfortunately, America loves guns. We love guns to a point that we see the devastation on a daily basis," Daley, whose city has suffered through a rash of violence, told reporters. "You don't blame a group. You don't blame a society, immigrant community because of actions of one group, one individual -- you cannot say that."

    The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence issued a statement last week saying that legislative measures to increase the availability of guns should be rejected in light of the attack.

    "This latest tragedy, at a heavily fortified army base, ought to convince more Americans to reject the argument that the solution to gun violence is to arm more people with more guns in more places," the organization's president, Paul Helmke, said.

    The message was aimed specifically at a proposal backed by the gun lobby and Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., to protect the right of veterans to own guns. Burr responded by accusing Helmke of exploiting the tragedy.

    "It is a shame that this process has gotten to a point where some feel that they can exploit the senseless murder of American soldiers in the quest to secure personal triumph," Burr said. "

    I agree with LWC. It is indeed disgusting that Islamofascist apologists are willing to use this tragedy, clearly the result of allowing an outspoken Islamic war protester, to further their agenda against gun ownership.

    Particularly given the fact that if anyone in that room had been armed, the casualty list would have been much, much shorter.

    Vast,
    It's a message board. The idea is TO talk.
    These are complex times. The need for thought and interaction very high.
    Think first, feel later.
    Some folks think aloud via keyboard.
    Pull up a chair.....you might learn something.

    First, "respect for the dead" is highly subjective, in my religion placing them on pedastools and talking about them a lot is the highest form of respect. Secondly, you are asking for the impossible. ;)

    Indeed, people should not be using this to further any agenda.

    Especially not an agenda trying to blame people other than the insane asshole that was the actual murderer for the incident.

    So, the people you mentioned in your article should Shut the Fuck up, and so should you, because your "Islamofascist" crap is just as bad.

    Except for the fact that Islamofascists are not independent nutjobs, or negate the necessity of recognizing them collectively.

    Some folks speak in public before they've thought anything through at all.

    Trying to turn an event like this into political gain is despicable. Period.

    As a former soldier myself, I am APPALLED by the partisan hackery being shown here.

    I have been on these boards for quite some time, and I could teach you a thing or two. But that doesn't mean that I believe every subject should be opened to patisan argument.
