Is this being PC or is it appeasement? Theres an agenda behind such words i think. PC part is an outgrowth of the appeasing.

Pearl Harbor suffered a severe case of "workplace violence" 70 years ago today. It is an occupational hazard in our military, one that we accept when we join up, but one that we expect our leaders to acknowledge and work to control. Let's call it what it is: war between good and evil. In the Fort Hood massacre, evil one a round against America and Americans. We have to win that war, or our kids will suffer forever.

Have you noted the distinct lack of terminal ballistics information available regarding the weapon used in this massacre?

I’m with her on this.

When they admit its jihad, then it’s not workplace violence.

Workplace violence? Is this where that suspension of disbelief thing comes in?

It was a glaring example of the EVIL this nation is up against when dealing with the death cult known as Islam. Calling it ‘workplace violence’ is a slap in the face of all Americans that love this country and a kick in the gut of every family that had a family member injured or killed at Fort Hood by that Muslim sleazeball.

Workplace violence?

By that reasoning, 9/11 should be classified as a simple case of pilot error.
