Misc thoughts on the traitor / terrorist attack at Ft Hood

President Barack Obama ordered the flags at the White House and other federal buildings be at half-staff and urged people not to draw conclusions while authorities investigate.

Oh we sure wouldn't want any misjudgments made about that murdering son of a bitch!

"We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts," Obama said in a statement.

Goodness no Mr President...we certainly don't want to jump to any conclusions other than what our handlers provide for us via WH approved spin!

Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" — before opening fire, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not yet confirmed that Hasan made the comment.

Let's don't pay any attention to the UNOFFICIAL remarks made by eyewitnesses on the scene. Let's wait on the OFFICIAL word to be issued by no one who was present at the time!

The gunman was struck four times by a civilian police officer who also was wounded herself. Authorities said Kimberly Munley fired on the suspect just three minutes after the gunfire began, and base officials said her efforts ended the crisis. Munley was recovering Friday at a hospital and was in stable condition.

Kudos to the officer who showed more balls than the responding officers at Columbine, but how ironic that the largest US military base inside the country, and they're all walking around disarmed. We've learned nothing in the last twenty-five of fighting Islamic terror!

Furthermore, imagine the destruction that could have been accomplished by 100 men with body armor and automatic weapons a la Mumbai! This was one guy with two pistols! Oh ya gotta love those damn disarmed victim zones!

The more news I watch about this, the MADDER I GET


Did it MY way said...

I would have rather been armed facing a court martial than dead. Can't trust a soldier to be armed at home? But ok to die in another world? WTF

See Ya

I once got caught with a half dozen .30-30 shells in my barracks. It looked pretty bad there for a little bit, but fortunately I had some people speak up for me and the charges were dropped. But for a few days I was worried about the Big Chicken Dinner, aka Bad Conduct Discharge.

A few things. First, at this point, with incomplete information, I believe (as in, I don't have enough info to say "I think") that this nutjob had his religion as one of the major causes of his behavior. But we have all seen cases where eyewitness accounts turned out to be mistaken, and I can easily believe (that term again) that, after the fact, being told the name of the attacker, some eyewitnesses had a memory fart. Stress can do that to memory.

Second, given his poor performance evaluation, he may just be using his religion to justify his loser-ness and go on a rampage.

Third, while I was in the Army (Ft. Knox) from 1973-1977, the only reason troops would have arms on base was that they were in a training exercise. Trust me, there were quite a few people, both officer and enlisted, that I wouldn't have trusted to go around armed. I'd be surprised if the Army has changed that much from then to now. It's NOT a free society, and cannot be if you want a disciplined military. (That's an argument for another day.)

Let's wait until we have more confirmed information and less speculation. It may very well turn out the way the initial reports indicate. Or not. I've seen too many cases of horrific crimes like this change in complexion when more info is discovered/confirmed.

Chris it almost sounds like you're saying "Let's give the Allah worshipper the benefit of the doubt". You're far more magnanimous than I.

Meanwhile, you're NOT willing to accept armed men who are already in service of their country.

You don't work for CAIR do you?

While speaking with another Vietnam Vet about this act of Islamic Terrorism today (I personally have no doubt that this is what it is, no matter how the spin doctors may parse it) I was reminded of the saying that got quite a bit of circulation back in the good ol' days.
"Kill 'em all and let God sort it out".
In my opinion that is something that will have to be done in order to convince the jihadist that it is in their best interests to give peace a chance.

Timur-i-ling (Tamerlane) once stacked up a million skulls of his enemies outside the gates of Baghdad. He had no more problem with them.

Like the college professor, the 2 X 4 and the mule, is reputed to have said "First, you have to get their attention".

IMHO we'll eventually be forced to use draconian measures against them or else like Barry Hussein Obama we'll all be bowing down to them.

Bring it, say I. You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

I think that obammy ordered the flags to half staff in honor of his moslem soul brother.

I can careless if a Nesei soldier did this we all know what everybody would have said and then hung. Forget the PC crap. I do not need any HG let alone orders to be an enemy sob.

Isn't it funny that Barry has no problem giving judgment about the "stupid cops" or whatever phrase he used with the Cambridge police and his buddy getting arrested, but when a Muslim shoots up an Army base with hundreds of witnesses all saying the same thing (Allah Akbar!), we must watch our tongues.

I still don't get the unarmed soldiers thing. Absolutely insane.

I was watching Mr Gibbs get broadsided today in a press conference by a Reporter trying to get the WH to admit this guy was a terrorist.

The great apologist CAN'T admit that as it would jeopardize his entire "foreign policy". Mr Gibbs was getting downright angry after a few minutes before he pulled the plug on her and wouldn't take anymore questions. He even declared that "anymore questions of that content will be ignored".

This administration is going to get many good people killed maintaining that mentality.
