THE AUSTIN-KILLEEN-WACO TRIANGLE? MILITARY CODE OF CONDUCT AND TREASONOUS STATEMENTS?
vanity | November 6, 2009 | justapicker

1. I hope this is just coincidence and not due to something in the water. These events all took place within about 30 miles either side of I-35 along the 100 mile distance from Austin to Waco, Texas:

* November 5, 2009: The massacre at Fort Hood by a muslim traitor. 13 killed, 3

* A 1993 raid by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the subsequent siege by the FBI ended with the burning of the Branch Davidian ranch outside of Waco, Texas in McLennan County. David Koresh, 54 adults and 21 children were found dead after the fire.

* Oct. 16, 1991: A deadly shooting rampage took place in Killeen, Texas, as George Hennard opened fire at a Luby’s Cafeteria, killing 23 people before taking his own life. 20 others were wounded in the attack.

* Aug. 1, 1966: Charles Whitman opened fire from the clock tower at the University of Texas at Austin, killing 16 people and wounding 31.

What else did they have in common: GUN FREE ZONES

2. Why wasn't this 'Major' Hasan booted out of the Army for his treasonous remarks in sympathy with, aiding and abetting the enemy, suggesting taking up arms against the aggressor USA? Why is he held to a different standard than 'American'GIs?

You lost me by trying to add the 1966 shooting.

The UT Tower massacre was the first of the mass shootings along I-35 from Austin to Waco

I love This part of Texas. Its just weird.

I guess we could expand it southward 100 miles on I-35 to San Antonio and back and add the Alamo, MArch 1836.

I watched someone being interviewed about the Fort Hood tragedy yesterday, and prominently in the background was that clock tower.
I don't know if it was set up that way purposely or not, but the 1966 shooting never came up.

Oh, give it a rest.

Do you realize how disparate all those events are, not to mention the time span you used? And the geographical area — do you realize that the area you outlined is as big as some states?

And look at the transient nature of some of the locales — a college campus, the largest military installation in the U.S.

Put your finger down on the map in any other place of similar size with similar demographics and look at incidents of violence over 40-50 years.

Don’t try to make this into anything other than what it was: an act of hateful jihad by a Muslim jerk against innocent people and a nation that had educated him and treated him much better than he deserved.

You are a loon looking for links where there are none.

The UT shootings happen because the guy had a friggin brain tumor and had delusional thinking. This week’s shooting happened because an Islamo-terroist decided he would do his jihad now.

Waco tied to these? Oh get real

I didn’t say they were tied except geographically

Just a quirk of coincidence

Jeez, I’m on your side.

You are absolutey correct on the causes of Austin and Fort Hood, respectively.

Everybody lighten up, please.

Hey, we’re all trying to make sense of this. Doesn’t hurt to talk about things, and this thread is interesting.

This is what makes FR fun, freedom to discuss.

Just a quirky post to ponder; nothing more - no offense intended

As stated, I love that part of the country and was just observing its odd to have 4 mass killings within a 100 mile distance in the last 50 years. It will be difficult to drive that stretch with out thinking about it.

Some states are 60 miles wide and 100 miles long; its been a while since I went through New England.

Let’s focus on the enemy. I attend tea parties in 105 degrees on July 3.

Charles Whitman was found (autopsy) to have a brain tumor that they think caused him to go crazy.

Back atcha!

Peace through strength

Back to work to pay someone else’s mortgage ...

Have you heard any discussion or links as to the Army did not kick this guy out for his known stated positions against his country and armed forces rather than ship him to Fort Hood for deployment?

Yep, and David Koresh was just plain nuts with a cult following of nuts.

Even nuttier were the POTUS and Attorney General who sent tanks in on men, women and children!

I will admit sometimes our water could use some improvement, but this area is a wonderful place to live full of decent hard working people. Please don’t make us out to be the land of extremists.

You are obviously unaware of the covert Reptilian control of our government aren’t you?

Actually the U of T might be described as a semi-gun-free zone at that time. The first people to do anything about the situation were some students who got their .22's out of the gun racks of their trucks and kept him pinned down until the cops got there.

I've only been to Austin twice, but I think it's fair to say that 1966 was a different time there.

I LOVE the “Heart of Texas.”

My family comes from west of there and y’all are indeed good hard working people...

Now, I lived in Midland if you want to talk about water that will rattle your teeth!

It’s amazing to me how far this has drifted from my original intent to point out a geographical curiosity; Never mentioned extremism, just unfortunate coincidence. This traitor muslim was the extremist.

Dallasites were unfortunately saddled with JFK and Dealey Plaza from the acts of a loon or a conspiracy, whichever you believe ...

A lot of folks feelings, including my own, are understandably raw at this time; didn’t mean to make it worse. Had a stepson in the military when Clinton was cutting em back and I hate that this ‘Major’ was educated at our expense, allowed to stay in the military while the authorities turned a blind eye to his traitorous remarks then kills so many of our best.

All the best to you and all the good people there.

You are correct; there were farmers, frat boys and good oleboys taking positions with their deer rifles and returning fire until the cops got there.

I just worry about these ‘gun free zones’ today.

Thanks

Thank you. Nerves are a little raw in this part of the country today. Ft. Hood is a big part of the Central Texas community — like an old friend. They are good neighbors.

Drat!

See post 3, worked it in as soon as I could but had to go a ways south from the original premise of weird triangulation ...

If you wanna include Houston we could dig up some really freaky stuff

What about the Virginia Tech connection....Hasan went to school there so did Cho. Or what about the obvious Muslim connection 9/11 terrorist were members of the religion of peace as was Hasan.

I thought about the Virginia Tech connection too. They’ve had more than their fair share of tragedy lately.

Then one of the citizens and a cop went up and took him out.

The heavy fire (and growing as more shooters showed up)from the Texas citizens on the ground had forced Whitman to have to fire through a narrow drain spout which blocked his effectiveness.

My apologies. I guess I misunderstood the nature of your post big time. The linkage I have made is that Muslims believe it is okay to kill someone else for no other reason than they are not Muslim. I won’t make that statement squishy with caveats. I will continue to be suspicious of anyone that I think is out to do harm to the US.

With that said, here’s lightening up ——I am laughing at myself for being so quick to jump all over a fellow Freeper. Again my apologies

By golly, you’re right.

Think I’ll stay off I-35.
