Nice to see someone calling it like it is.
Ralph makes a very important point. If a soldier makes politically-charged comments sympathizing with a known enemy, that soldier is investigated by the US Army Intelligence for any association with foreign intelligence services or any potential to commit espionage/treason. The same should apply in this situation. It is NOT a prejudice against a person's religion; it is a check to determine if this individual might either sympathize, assist or conduct acts of terrorism.
Ralph's right: we've lost our guts. We're afraid of hurting feelings, and as a result, we can't identify potential enemies when they lie in our midst.
Was it really a terroristic act? According to the above stated definition it was not.
I'll tell you it was: One crazy motherfucker going bonkers because he didn't want to take part in a war that he didn't believe in (had big reservations against it) and also was 'supposedly' mistreated by some for being a Muslim.
It is becoming more and more evident that the Maj made this attack based upon his religious ideals and that it was premeditated. I hope that they begin a Military Courts-Martial as soon as he is physically able and then execute him within the year.
That's true, though it's not clear (from articles so far) what he was protesting about the wars.
It's being reported that he's still in a "coma". He would have been in a medically induced coma while on the vent, but he's off that now. Hopefully he'll be awake soon enough and the investigators can get some answers.
I completely agree with this post. Isn't it time we stopped being such a pack of pussies and begin to call things out for what it really is?
I've been a fan of Ralph Peters for years, he's a soldier's soldier.
Can't say I agree with everything he says here, but am glad to hear him state, without qualification, that this was an act of terrorism.
So far as not running Hasan out of the Army goes, I'll need to see more. The fact of the matter, and LTC (not COL) Peters knows this, is that our activities as soldiers are not so tightly monitored that the 'maggot' infested command chain knows what we do and why. There's not a mechanism in place to screen our blogs/ message board spews, etc.....and there would be hell to pay if there were. The usual answer of 'battle buddy' care/suspicion doesn't work so well this time. Like it or not, Muslims are isolated in the US military.
In a very real sense, our own prejudices helped facilitate this terrorist act.
He did it because he was a muslim. He was not an American. There is no other explanation. He simply played the Army for a free M.D. and when it came time to pay-up he did the allah-akbar bullshit and slaughtered the stupid, naive, infidels.
Ft. Hood Killer part of Government Mind Control Program
The Ft. Hood killer is Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Virginia Tech graduate.
Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui ChoSeung-Hui Cho killed 32 students at Virginia Tech, then himself, in April of 2007.
Cathy O'Brien claims to have been a victim of a U.S. Government mind control program operating in a secret facility near Blacksburg, Virginia, home of Virginia Tech.
Cathy O'Brien wrote a book about this in 1995 entitled TRANCE-FORMATION of AMERICA. She claims Virginia Tech is good for two things, engineering and mind control. She adds that most of the mind control experimentation being conducted on the east coast of the United States is being performed from this secret underground facility near Blacksburg, Virginia.
This mind control program is run by DARPA, an agency of the Department of Defense responsible for the develpoment of new technology for use by the military. Developing Manchurian Candidates seems to be an important part of their agenda.
DARPA is an acronym meaning Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Supposedly you can use Google Earth to find the approximate location of this secret underground facility. Type in the words "Kimballton Mine Blacksburg Virginia"
or try typing in the words "DUSEL Blacksburg". DUSEL is an acronym meaning Deep Underground Science Engineering Laboratory.
You can also Google the MK ULTRA project and learn more about the mind control programs the U.S. Government has been working on ever since the Philadelphia Experiment went horribly wrong in the 1940's.
