Okay, if no one else will address the 800 pound gorilla in the room...

Here's where the Army went ridiculously wrong in the first place: Allowing him to sign up, despite the fact that he was a natural born American Citizen.

Here's your scenario: A young Soldier returns from a tour, be it his 1st, 2nd, even 3rd; in Iraq or Afghanistan. He's seen too many close friends and fellow Soldiers killed by Muslims to not have some severe PTSD. So, we send him to the mental health center and who happens to be his shrink? A FUCKING MUSLIM!!

Do you really think that's smart at any level?? Political Correctness and Cultural Awareness are going to be the destruction of the U.S.

I think you have Muslim confused with Al Qaeda and the Taliban as most of the idiots in this thread do

By the way it's the muslim extremists such as al qaeda but hey it's not like any other religions in the world have ever killed anyone.
This tragic act resembles a one man Columbine more than a terrorist act.

You want an army of pure white Christian men, like Tim McVeigh, preferably dressed in black, with those nice lightening flash runes on one collarboard and a totenkopf on their forage cap ? Yeah, that sounds about right.
I think you're on the wrong planet.
BTW, I'm sorry about your father. War is hell, but some wars need fighting, and the sacrifices made create a better World for us all because we learn from them and honor and respect those who fought in them.
Wars for oil, greed and imperial hegemony against a non-existent threat and minor nuisance which could have been handled by a SEAL team are NOT amongst them.

So,...this Major in the US Army, who was a devout muslim, told someone that very morning that he was very concerned about being deployed to Iraq, and he did not want to shoot and kill a fellow Muslim....So,...I guess killing fellow Americans was ok with him??????....Yeah, this was about religion, believe it or not...but it was...
In WW2 japanese Americans were barred from military service because the loyalties were questioned....i think that because of the nature of our current involvments, we should be barring Muslim Americans from the military right now.

Blacks? Why do you think I have a prob with blacks? Because Obama is black? NOOOO, I am not judging him by the color of his skin at all....his NAME says it all!!

The Japanese were allowed to fight in Europe, where they were the most decorated regiment.

It's being reported that there were two shooters. However, how one man with two pistols shoot 42 people is easy to figure out with the most elementary of weapon knowledge. He reloaded!

Correct... but they were not allowed to serve shoulder to shoulder with non-asian soldiers. They were segregated to protect against incidents such as this. That's called common sense. Too bad Political Correctness and Cultural Sensitivity are counter-productive to good old fashioned common sense.

Excellent!!!!
But, because the current conflicts do not have another place to put them on, the questionable loyalties are a concern... and there is much damage they could do to the soliders that are deployed to those areas even if they are placed in homeside support positions only...because of the complexities, they should be banned from military service.

I so dislike you mindless ignorant tools of sly neocon propaganda.

"At the tactical level, linguist teams deployed with the 2d and 4th Marine Divisions and the 27th Army Division. Two of the Nisei, Ben Honda and George Matsui, won Silver Stars for their work during the battle. Another Nisei, Hawaii-born Bob Kubo, scored a major tactical coup while supporting the 27th Division. While interrogating a captured Japanese soldier one day, he learned of the timing for the last major suicide attack. He quickly relayed this to the division's leadership, who were thereby able to brace themselves for the blow."

What color is the sky in your world? That man was a soldier for the last 8 years, you know during Bush's 8 years. He also became a major in April 2008. Again, Bush's term. Where was Bush? Obviously, you don't deal with facts and truth. Just like your ex President. Invading Iraq when the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. You know, that country where Bush's friends the bin Ladens live. You know the bin Laden family that Bush flew right out of here immediately after 9/11.

Let me tell you and thing or 2, Mr. I am so righteous!
My Dad was taken POW in your country, by the Germans! He was held in Stalag 7A and treated like an animal, for fighting for YOUR country! Stop the crap. My Dad was never the same. He left here a young man and came back an old, weary soldier. Thank you very much for the gratitude!
I am tired of hearing about your Dad's service to the country. It is not your service to talk about or demand gratitude for.
Lets talk about your service. Or you just one of those endless armchair patriots who thinks others sacrifice some how makes you more patriotic? At least that Major enlisted and served 8 years as a soldier in the US. BTW during Bush's 8 years of Presidency.
Stop the crap, you weren't outraged with muslims serving during Bush's presidency. This is about racism - the Major wasn't white enough for all of you. Just like President Obama isn't white enough for all of you.

Another liberal heard from, thankyou for confirming the fact democrats hate the military. FYI my son served his country honorably, including a year in Baghdads Triangle of Death. He has never seen the inside of a jail cell and maintains a high security clearance for his present job. I bet he'd love to talk to you about it in person.
overlook the Placitas, it obvious hes one that cant make the cut, he has to cut down what he cant do, most likely weak in the mind ,just a couch pus that cant pull away from his momma...
