Well guys it was all over our news today down in Texas. Fort Hood shooting 12 dead 31 wounded. Forgive me but before we move on i would like to give some backstory and history. Fort Hood is the US's biggest base and back when i was in JCC (Junior Cadet Corps) our battalion allowed about 30 of over 200 cadets go to Fort Hood for a sort of pseudo boot camp and i was allowed to go so naturally i seized the oppurtunity and packed my bags. That had to be one of the funnest trips i had ever been on i mean who doesn't love getting up at 4:30 sharp in the morning for a 5 mile run then have to wait another hour just to get their freakin breakfast.Any way i had a great time at this huge place and had some good memories. Now back to the topic. This Major who was under investigation already for months finally breaks and starts shooting people. I was instantly mortified to hear that this place where i had a blast was the sight of a massacre, where soldiers who are about to head off to Iraq stay for a while, by a guy armed only with a pistol. Eventually they shot and "Killed" him. Well a couple of hours ago i turn on the news and 'you guessed what' is on. They start repeating things i heard earlier when all of a sudden i hear that this killer is not dead but is alive and in stable condition. All this is udder shock for me and unfortunantly my memories are scarred now but i would like to move on and ask that everyone pray for the families of these soldiers who were killed and wounded today.
Thank you.

Such a tragedy... I wish all those that died, and their families peace after this dreadful act. The man that did this deserves to be hung by his fingers until they break, then his toes, then his nose, and his male body part, then shoot everyone of his fingers off until he passes out from the pain. When he wakes up, do it again. Scum like that deserves the worst of punishments.

This guy never went to battle. He was a "psychiatrist" for the army. So he heard all of the stories of war, and pretty much had to envision or see what they saw but never did he actually "see" it.
He was also really scared about being deployed.

Its sickening to think someone could do something like this. I don't see how you wouldn't break down knowing your taking fellow americans not to mention people of this wolds lives. I understand he was upset. He supposedly was picked on by other soldiers for being muslim, and was trying to get out before his contract ended.
(This is all from different sources)
But I still just don't see the need to kill fellow americans... When his one reason for joining the army was that he "wanted to serve his country."

I'm a Canadian, down in the states for training for a couple weeks. I watched all of this on the news here in NY, and it just makes me feel ill.

This guy didn't want to go kill muslims but apparently has no trouble killing non-muslims. Just incredible. He's certainly supporting the misconception that muslims consider everyone else infidels and less than human.

Please know that your Canadian friends are thinking of you and supporting you in this difficult time.

I never said he went to war i just said war does things to u. Sure he could have handled it differently but there was just so much against him. Im sorry that it had to come to this but saying that all muslims think we are infidels is a bit racist so please watch what you say and be respectful of others

The man admitted to being a terrorist extremist. So "war" has nothing to do with it.

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.. I said he was adding to the misconception that muslims believe that others are infidels. It's certainly a misconception and I didn't intend to suggest otherwise.
