I just wanted to thank everyone who called Bullshit on you, BG. My uncle left home and didn’t return for four years. No ‘leave’. Period.

You dont know that they are ‘own’ NOT all US soldiers are citizens.

Never said anything about citizens..I consider U.S. Soldiers our own, friend.

Read the post...Lt. Gen Bob Cone at Fort Hood stated: The shooter/shooters were U.S. Soldiers....He was then cut off, and then the feed came back on a minute later and he repeated it.

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.

Still looking for names and whether or not they were citizens or not!

If true, it's sad that some of our soldiers have as little respect for those in uniform as their Community-Organizer-in-Chief shows.

Since there is no such thing as the “greatest generation” would you care to tell us which age group you are talking about.

WWII soldiers probably ranged from about 15 to 60 so that is not a generation.

This was the first five paragraphs of the early msnbc article. By the time I went back to url to update, it was gone in the update.

Did anybody get a screen shot?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NBC News and msnbc.com
updated 10 minutes ago

At least 12 people were killed and 31 others were wounded in a mass shooting incident Thursday at Fort Hood, Texas, military officials said. The shooter was shot to death, they said.

More shots were reported later in the afternoon, reported NBC affiliate KCEN-TV of Waco, which said no further details were immediately available.

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.

It was unknown whether the victims were all soldiers or civilians at Fort Hood, one of the largest military complexes in the world. The base was on lockdown, as were schools in the area.

KCEN, which quoted a source as saying at least one of the shooters had a high-powered rifle, reported reported that at least four SWAT officers were among those wounded.

"#3 Got caught in some drug connection (sorry libertarians)"

While I'm not a big "L" libertarian, I am not sure why you would think that libertarians are folks in drug connections or support folks in drug connections. What exactly is your comment supposed to mean? Was it just one of those stupid things that someone might say when they engage their fingers on the keyboard before any brain synapses fired?

nor did they have as many tours as our soldiers have done.

No, the troops stayed in theater until they were wounded, killed or war was over. There was no such thing as going home fora "tour" And yes many of the "Greatest Generation" suffered mental breakdowns although they destroyed themselves, not others.

There were similar problems in WWII both in Europe and the Pacific theatre. Do you think there were no soldiers wearing civilian clothes then? Espionage and counter-espionage with halmarks of that war. Plus, since when has anyone ever seen more than one soldier engage in an action such as this due to stress induced PTSD? I call BS to the charge this was stress induced.

Back at the start of the war in Iraq, a soldier in the 101st who was a member of the ROP attacked his fellow soldiers at Camp Pennsylvania, Kuwait, killing two officers and wounding fourteen other soldiers.

We have less soldier with more tours than the GG.

12 million fighting, compared with the limited amount today.

It’s not what the GG went up against but what we face today.

WW2 was easily defined in it’s scope. Compared with the todays no front conflict

I didn’t say one was greater or harder than the other. But they are different.

Well, I can agree they are different...but having not been in either situation, I can’t compare. Tough situation.

I don’t understand the whole “killing fellow soldiers because they don’t want to go back to Iraq” thing. Makes no sense at all. I could see if it was just one deranged person, but I don’t see how more than one would think this was a good approach to that problem.

Yeah video game warfare. Really. If it was a video game then 4,000 soldiers wouldn’t have died in Iraq.

Too many of the guys are going over there thinking its a game.

Of course, I am just a 17 year old. What do I know.

What I do know is that the Iraq War was hardly bloodless and just because you had TV missles and advanced tanks meant nothing for an enemy that did not have a decadent public calling for their withdrawal.

War is about will. Americans better be ready to stay in Afghanistan. No more ceding ground and looking weak.

Thank your uncle for his service.

My Dad had to ride in a troop ship to the Pacific Theater. Did not return until after ( well after) VJ day and there was no leave. He had pictures from an r&r he got ——10 days ( all at once) at the rear. He laughed about it

Had to be one of three in a case like this.

Islam, drugs or crazy.

Though Islam, crazy and drugs could probably go together often I would imagine.

Love to. Pick your average soldier that was in their 20s during the war and was old enough to start a family in the late 40s and 50s during the Baby Boom. Hope that clears it up. I appreciate the sacrifices they made and their stopping of evil but their children spat on what they were given.
