There are 17 comments on the www.seattlepi.com story from Mar 23, 2012, titled Army sergeant charged in Afghan massacre. In it, www.seattlepi.com reports that:

Charges filed Friday against Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales reflect the horror of the crime: 17 counts of premeditated murder, more than half of them children, during a shooting rampage in southern Afghanistan. But while Afghans are calling for swift and severe punishment, it will likely be months, even years, before the public ever sees Bales in a courtroom.

The glaring question that all are thinking,is...how come a MUSLIM American Soldier .did not get treated this way....Now I'm not saying this guy should not get the letter of the law,,,,BUT Why ia a MUSLIM,a TERRORIST,who killed Americans at Ft. Hood,...be treated differentially??

Whats This All about????For many it reenforces that OBAMA is a MUSLIM LOVER!.....Does not the law apply equally???/Or if yer a MUSLIM, it does not....This Muslim they said was work place violence.related!...

Screaming ALLAH ALLAH AKBAR,Killing innocents, makes it work place rage??...Meanwhile that guy,in a den of vipers ,goes BESERK..and he his a cold blooded muder???? Could Be he CRACKED also!Something STINKS in this WHITE HOUSE ...and its OBAMA!

The man who massacred Ft. Hood did not scream "Allah Akbar".... However, it's true that there is an obvious bias when it comes to crimes committed by Muslims vs. crimes committed by non-Muslim Americans. This country is plagued by Islamic apologists. The soldier in Afghanistan probably had mental problems, but is being unfairly viewed as a cold blooded sadist. However, name calling and making false accusations as you did does NOT help get your point across or make others aware of the biases in our society.

Afghans live in a culture of "swift and severe punishment" and revenge and blood feuds so some are bound to be frustrated by America military legal process.

It Seems yer a MUSLIM yer self...and Like Muslims ,will not,can not acknowledge the truth.

"His devotion to Islam, as he understands it, appears to have been longstanding and unswerving. And when he started shooting, witnesses say that he shouted "Allahu akbar!" Which means "God is great!" in Arabic, the language of the Quran."

While were at it ,More facts for you to stick yer head in the Camel Shit...
There is a FATWA, just issued by the grand Mufi,in Saudi Arabia calling for the destruction of all Christen Church s....

Best you find out about this,,,But like MUSLIMS in America,who are always SCREAMING DISCRIMINATION?...NOT A FREEGEN WORD AGAINST THIS!...Nor about that MUSLIM who Killed in Ft. Hood Texas That Terrible Day!......So lets get real..MUSLIMS WANT TO KILL AMERICANA

There's no comparison between the recent massacre in Afghanistan and the killings at Ft. Hood.

The war in Afghanistan is unprovoked aggression, the highest war crime. The people of Afghanistan were never a threat to Americans until our troops invaded and occupied their country, in which case they have every right to defend themselves. Every Afghan death at the hands of the foreign invaders is murder.

The killings at Ft. Hood were perpetrated by an American soldier (and perhaps more than one), the targets were not civilians, and the American military is currently waging unprovoked aggression against several Muslim nations. If the official story regarding the Ft. Hood shootings is accurate and the shooter identified himself as a Muslim retaliating against the deaths of Muslims abroad, then arguably his actions are justified. In the case of Staff Sgt. Bales, there is no justification, beyond perhaps the fact that he appears to be a casualty of the war as well and that his brain is trashed.

The ultimate blame in a war of aggression rests with the architects of the policy and the leaders who implement it.

Actually, the greatest threat to the U.S. are the people who write and sign legislation to shred the constitution, specifically our constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties, but also separation of powers, etc. The folks in the military swear an oath to defend the constitution from enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, but unfortunately many are off in foreign lands killing innocent people, non-threats, FOLLOWING THE ORDERS of the very criminals that are shredding our constitution.

If you see flaws in my argument, reply with specifics.

Atrocities have been committed by every army in every war since the last Ice Age. It's human nature. All that can be done is to try and prevent as much of it as possible, but it is happening somewhere right now.

Here is an early press briefing by Texas Governor Rick Perry. Note that he says there are THREE shooters, one dead, two in custody:

The official narrative regarding the Ft. Hood shootings smells like all the other sh!t that the Pentagon "Information Operations" geeks shovel our way. But even if we pretend it's true, there is absolutely no comparison between the Ft. Hood shootings and the recent massacre of Afghan civilians.

And this is why laws that penalize acts of unprovoked aggression should be enforced to the fullest extent. The architects and leaders of the illegal invasion and occupation in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) created the circumstances for all of the subsequent atrocities. The blood on the hands of an out-of-control staff sgt. is also blood on the hands of policy architects and military command.

"TSA Director"? Does it concern you that the motivation for all of the TSA policies that violate the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution are bogus government-run operations (the "shoe bomber," the "underwear bomber," etc.)? How many "terrorists" does the TSA catch... and I don't mean the mothers trying to "smuggle" breast milk past x-ray scanners or elderly with knee and hip replacements or colostomy bags that could no doubt be used as weapons if wielded expertly?
