Some US Soldiers are also followers of TROP.

FWIW

According to your link, they were in uniform, but it’s not clear yet whether they were soldiers. Remembering how wrong everybody was about the Oklahoma City bombing until McVeigh surfaced, maybe it’s best not to jump to conclusions...

WOW, wonder what the story on this will end up being.

#1 They have connections to Islam.
#2 They kind of went nuts.
#3 Got caught in some drug connection (sorry libertarians)

That is what at first comes to mind.

I don’t see that at the link. But it does have this:

“Fort Hood is home to the Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program, which is designed to help soldiers overcome combat stress issues.”

That may or may not be relevant.

Two American soldiers conspiring to kill masses of other American soldiers, I'm not buying it. Unless they are members of that cult that is muslim.

I can't vouch for accuracy but a person at this website is reporting his/her daughter is on the base and that the shooters were "A couple soldiers didn't want to go back to Iraq...One shooter was a E-6"

“A senior administration official told NBC News analyst Roger Cressey that the suspect who was in custody was an Army major with an Arabic-sounding name. The official said the shootings could have been a criminal matter rather than a terrorism-related attack and that there was no intelligence to suggest a plot against Fort Hood.”

I believe I heard a report that said one of the shooters was an officer with an arabic name. No confirmation as of yet.

All through the Iraq war there was this undercurrent that the poor people signed up for the military to make money then all of a sudden the evil Bush administration sent them to war.

I suppose this could be a variation on the same theme - "all I wanted was a paycheck and now you're sending me to war you criminal."

Why would you think there was any need to apologize to libertarians for that statement? They favor neither murder nor organized crime of any sort.

‘The soldiers of the greatest generation never seemed to come close to start shooting their own fellow servicemen.’

The ‘greatest generation’ wasn’t at War for over 8 years, nor did they have as many tours as our soldiers have done.

I was hoping it would be a foreign enemy...I thought it might be better to handle....

Now....I'm just sick at the thought these were our own.

I truly doubt that was the reason. They could have gone AWOL. There was another agenda - which was what they did.

15 minutes ago, I said to my wife, “some of these soldiers are Muslims”, and whether or not it’s terrorism as such, it’s related to Islam.
NOW the word is out that the Major who did most of the shooting has an “Arabic-sounding name”.

All, call me a tin-foil hatter, but the timing of this seems suspects Is just seems sooo convenient to have this happen and change the subject from the election results and the health care protests in DC. Anyways, prayers for all the impacted families.
