Army: 12 dead in attacks at Fort Hood, Texas

By JAY ROOT and ANNE GEARAN (AP) – 23 minutes ago

FORT HOOD, Texas — The U.S. Army says 12 people have been killed and 31 wounded in a shooting rampage on the Fort Hood Army base in Texas.

The Army says one shooter has been killed and two others apprehended on Thursday in the shooting and all are U.S. soldiers...

Apparently no one told these shooters that we are fighting them over THERE, so we don't have to fight them over HERE!

well, it looks like a jonny jihad moment..

all i can hope is that they REALLY figure this out the right way..
not like that crap with the bad powder bags on the Jersey and blaming the sailors..

IF it WAS a jonny jihad thing..
that will sure mess up some careers or certain ethnic military personnel..
not fair, but hey..
over here, vs over there..
it may sound funny, but that IS the perception..
so it won't be a joke when it's over.
shame, bad guys are crazy guys..

and there is NEVER stopping really crazy determined idiots.
i don't care how many ground zero memorials and ship bows one makes.

I was sitting in a waiting room waiting on my appointment and was reading an article in Rolling Stones magazine. The headline was "Fort Carson Killing Spree". Can't get it online.

It was about 3 soldiers back from Iraq that killed 11 people in their home town. It was really a very interesting article that gave some insight to how strung out some of these soldiers are after having spent time and time again over there.

Your wrong evutch the war isn't only over seas it is right here at home. You simply don't punch a button and leave what you experienced in a war behind just because you came home.

Now your story doesn't give any details but I did find some more updated news (2 hours old) stating one of the shooters is a dead soldier and two other people are in custody. No identity given for the other 2.

War is a package deal and makes an impact beyond any geographical borders.

Truth is stranger than fiction, because fiction has to make sense.

I heard the tail end of a radio announcement that made it sound like one of the shooters was a Muslim-convert committing jihad... and is an army Major!

IF i remember this guy right..
he was a 'convert" working at REED in town here..
he had a run in with some of the people at the hospital, conserning treatments of personnel undergoing treatment HERE.
and got hisself a transfer out..

BUT we'll see.
i'm NOT passing judgement until i hear the facts..
however, it DOES sound like a jonny jihad thing..
and he MIGHT have been working with a few "recruits".
so..
well, stay tuned.

i feel BAD for everyone who got caught up in a guy going nutso for whatever reason..

guys who want to do that SHOULD just do themselves..
but when it's a religious conversion, and they want to go out in a blaze for allah or whatever ragged robed prophet whomever, it makes the war come home..
HERE.
more than just a few shakey guys bringing the war home in their heads..
but an out and out attack on home soil.

stick a jimmy dean up the majors but and bury him face down.

but MIND you..
we don't know ANYTHING yet..
and i've seen servicemen blamed for ALL kinds of things before the truth came out it wasn't so.

so, i'll wait.

hell, the Major COULD have dies trying to protect people, and his nationality and rank and uniform out weighed ANY religious leanings..

well, ok, pie in the sky don't hold your breath..
but it could have..

hey, stranger things.

...now we know he ain't dead and he's not a convert; been Islamic all of his life. I think he had deep cultural conflicts....and was irritated from being bullied and teased, then just got stupid. W/ out the cultural conflict-even if he was born in the USA (which he was), there may have not been a suddenly stupid moment.

This mind bend of the old culture clash is serious shit and the Westerner ought to bear that in mind. It is very, very stupid not to - "politically correct" did this ...not paying attention to the psyche end of this stuff is idiocy and ironies of ironies this sick bitch is a Psyche Major (gAwED ❗ 😯 ... Laugh ).......<---evil huh?. Well get your shits together, this is just a symptom, a start.

This fanaticism is a real drag. These messed up anomalies are gonna get more frequent.

What I have herd so far is that he is alive and in stable condition. Not many details on his wounds, or how life threatening they are. I'm sure he has already wished 1000 times over, that he had been killed. He was a Major and served as a Phyciatrist, and was recently given a bad officer review, which one Ex-General said is the worst thing any officer can recieve. Depending on how bad could be thrown out, but in almost every case, will never see a promotion again. He had been known to be very outspoken and controversal in comments he had made around his workplace, and known to have said some controversal things on the internet. Talked about being very against going to Afganistan. Thats about the only details I herd about him, they are not saying much. There were many Red Flags about his behavior, but not sure if they would led to one thinking he would do this. How many times do we hear that?

He did kill 12 people, they think he was a lone gunman. He wounded 31 others, but I have not herd the conditions of them. Instead of serving in Afganistan, probably safe in a military hospital someplace, now he gets to face Military justice, and probably be executed.

And now the tally is 13 and 30, another of his victims passed away. Yes, G2, Major Nidal Malik Hasan was an Army shrink, recently posted to Fort Hood after completion of his internship. So he was a head shrinker but he was new at it. He was also upset that he was going to be deployed to Afghanistan; they make no mention of him previously being deployed overseas.

Evutch, it's the same guy that was making waves at Walter Reed. And yes, he received a bad evaluation, so he probably would have been RIF'd on completion of his Afghanistan tour.

Apparently the authorities had been watching him for about 6 months due to Web posts they believe Hasan authored, equating suicide bombers to soldiers that throw themselves onto grenades. Which sounds a bit too familiar, kind of like something I may have read here a few months ago.

I've withheld comment on this one until I had a chance to read through several posts/reports from the best of sources. Soooooooooo:

Why have they changed their story so quickly at least 2-3 times now? The shooter not being dead is gonna be a big problem for the MSM Spin using the words Muslim and Religion and of course TERRORISM.

His Family claims he was harassed to the point of wanting a discharge, while the Army is spinning that he was a trouble maker. As usual something stinks. Over his religion:

One of those who was shot used the word THEY in her Interview. Does that indicate more than 1 shooter? Was she merely using the Word as a Comparison to the Muslims and Terrorists?

I can put up a super thread where very smart people break these kinds of things down if anyone is interested in reading it!

Personally my only thought is a simple one: Well Two really:

1) Accused shooter still being alive will turn out being a big problem.

2) WTF Does Ft Hood need with a swat team and men in suits?
