He feared persecution. "He wouldn't try to take nobody's life," his mother said.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.

The motive in the attack "most likely was resentment," said Max Blumenfeld, another U.S. Army spokesman

Hmm... Maybe we shouldn't have deployed our "Muslim" soldiers to Iraq.

This guy chose his religion over his country. He should burn for his actions.

No civilian courts and civilian lawyers for him. UCMJ covers this quite well.

This guy should face a twenty-one gun salute with live ammo aimed directly at him. I know it will never happen...the A.C.L.U. is probably already on it and Johnny Cochran has probably been contacted.

Heath also said Akbar had been having "an attitude problem."

I have a quick solution to Akbar's attitude problem.

How about a firing squad.

He said the only thing he was going out there to do was blow up the bridges."

Hmmmm.....odd statement in light of the fact that we are purposely NOT blowing up the bridges this time.

He was a double major in aeronautical and mechanical engineering, and graduated with a bachelor's degree as Hasan Karim Akbar nine years later, apparently because "he stopped and started several times" with his classes, Lapin said.

I don't care if it took him 9 years this is not an easy degree set. The guy had some type of brains. Islam rotted it with anger.

We keep hearing that 99.9% of Muslim-Americans are loyal U.S. citizens. Akbar is obiously one of those 0.1%.

I wonder what the ratio of "loyal US citizens" would be among Black Muslims, as opposed to the Muslim population in general.
It seems to me that Black Muslims are far more politicized, and that they often choose their "religion" more as a way to express their political views than as a matter of faith.
As a group, the Black Muslims seem to be interested in being anti-American and inciting racial division.
Do we really want to continue to tolerate these Farrakhan followers who rail against "white devils" and are one of the most organized and widespread fifth columns in our country?
I think we need a solution...

I don't think Mr. Cochran nor the ACLU will be of much help to Mr. Kools. If reports are accurate, he committed a treasonous act of murder, in the U.S. military, while at war on foreign soil. He is now at the mercy of a field court-martial conducted by his commanding officer, should said officer wish to conduct one. If he is found guilty by that court martial, it's quite possible (even likely) that he will be put to death for his crime.

And that can all happen in accord with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Within a matter of a few weeks, if they decide to expedite matters.

I do believe that he's quickly heading to a firing squad, or a gallows. And the military's courts work *much* faster than our courts.
