Peaceful, loving bunch those Muslims (terrorists) are, ain't they?!!

If they're not driving down their own daughters with their cars on the streets of America..., jetting some planes into some buildings..., or blowing something up..., they're shooting the place up.

All in the name of Allah!

Go figure.

As if Americans dont have breakdowns and shoot others? this man did NOT want to go to the Middle East and shoot others of his own faith. What part of this is so incomprehensible to Christians and others? I can name quite a few Christians who have done the same... shot up schools and malls and museums for their own reasons.

Is it right? NO. However, the military knew he didnt want to go and did NOTHING. Maybe the military ought to look in the mirror and see what they missed? There are many grieving friends and family members who would like some answers.

Anyone else notice this?

First they say the radical Muslim shooter is dead and his two accomplices are in custody. Then, after speaking with the President, the commanding base general says the shooter is alive and acted alone.

Anyone else smell a rat? How deep do ties to radical Islam go in our military? I think a full independent investigation is in order.

The Army definitely dropped the ball with regards to this P.O.S. Now, will someone please put a bullet in this a-hole's braincase so he can go be with his 72 virgins.

Inside Islam terror attack
It has been reported he was a radical Islamic.
He was in chat rooms, and he so stated.
Ben Laden said he would bring America to it's knees with in it's own Government,
I am afraid this may be just the begining.

We are in a religous war which was in the makings for over 3 or 4 decades.
Radical Islam has inflitrated our Government and out military

I believe the military will handle the trial; what do you think the punishment will be?

The dude is a MUSLIM they DO NOT need anything other than their religious beliefs to set them off.

While it is true that not all terrorists are Muslims. All MUSLIMS are potential terrorists waiting to strike at a McDonald's, Apple bee's, TGIF Fridays, Wal-Mart, High school football or basketball game.

If a Muslim is able to attack our military personnel on one of our military bases none of us are safe from a Muslim attack.

The time has come for ALL Americans to arm themselves and prepare for the battles to come.

Then he shoulddn't have been in the Army, period. You take an oath to protect the United States of America. This war has been going on for 8 years. He had the oppurtunity to get out if he had misgivings.

The military is not to blame. The POS who pulled the trigger on his own is to blame. Unreal how you could lose sight of that so quickly..........

He hired a lawyer to get himself OUT of the military and the military refused to allow it!

Yes, it was his fault; however, if the military knows someone is emotionally not ready to go to war. They should somehow deal with it. I didnt lose sight of anything.

Listen, Dr Spock....in his mind, he figured that he was going to war....among HIS people...he would be part of the war.

He didnt want to be in the military period! He tried to get out of the military and they refused to allow him to leave.

This was HIS perception, NOT mine. Got that??
