I've been praying for him since the Battle of Fort Sumter.

I've been praying for him since the Battle of Hastings.


I've been praying for him since Methusala's birth.

I don't know more than the next guy right now, but I'm ready to laugh at everyone who is jumping on the "jihadist" bandwagon BS. What is this, 2002?

I bet it's just pissed off white guys, just like in Oklahoma City, just like in Columbine, just like in Atlanta.


Yeah. I'm not going to pretend I know what's going on but the extreme long-shot bet is "jihadis", with plenty of smarter, safer bets to be made before it.

Don't forget DC.
Oh, wait...

Hmm. I just turned on CNN Headline, and they had a slide on for like a good 2 minutes showing the Dow Jones performance of the day, with some kind of neat sounding thrash metal playing over it.

DFWPhotoGuy: ravenlore: The PD feed seems to confirm at least one still on the loose. Also, All the PD sound like they're all going to Wal-Mart or the mall.

MSNBC reporting 7 dead 20 wounded

BTW, awesome link earlier I really appreciate it. CONVOY TO THE MAIN GATE. Right after loud music call at apartment 3


Great, all I need is 10 more long haired friends of Jesus and a chartreuse microbus.

That's still my speculation, although why 2 gunmen?



Maybe it was two pissed off *black* guys, just like in D.C.

MorganGuard: Don't appreciate submitter's attempt at humor ... armed forces members likely the victims. There's no humor in their loss whether it involves domestic fatalities or overseas.

armed forces members likely the perps as well... just like they were the last two times someone was shot at Ft. Hood.

That's right. You can tell because of the excellent marksmanship.

Hey! I just realized that I can listen to the police/EMS scanner from Fort Hood!

Only interesting thing so far is that the cops can't use their cell phones because the circuits are full.

Guess now I'll have to listen to Wolf Blitzer.


Are you talking about this jem?
"Well, uh, the legal, uh, definition, uhh, would be, uhh, conspiracy."

Somebody please give Rick a cookie.

Thats an 827: The only bases place we carried live and armed were SAC flight lines. Occasionally in the states and all times at Misawa and Chitose. Oh, M2 Carbines.
This was 1952-55 can't vouch for later years.


I doubt it's changed much since then.

Luby's was a gun free zone. Just sayin'.

How do you know it was a soldier much less a soldier suffering from PTSD?

zootsuit: buh buh but don't guns prevent gun violence? I'm confused.


yeah, because no one dies in wars that have guns, either. dumbass.

you don't think a police officer in a police station could take down a few cops before being taken out by other cops?

if all of the people on base were disarmed the killers would've probably killed plenty more. i'm sure you would've enjoyed that.

Who knows, could be just two guys equally ready to die for something they both believe in.

If this has been explained, I apologize. But why does the Army need SWAT units to handle this? Aren't we training our guys for urban combat?

On the surface, it just seems odd. I'm sure there's a good reason.

clusterfrak:
Someone with PTSD would probably be acting alone. Two or three usually indicates something else. But even if is an Army Columbine or worse, this will be spun against Obama for some stupid reason or other.


There's 3 or 4 guys on trial in Colorado Springs for basically treating the downtown area like Tikrit, and another two that are on trial for killing a drug dealer. All of them were PTSD cases, and had pulled away from friends and family who hadn't been to Iraq. So PTSD cases can team up to do some pretty bad shiat. Especially if they served together.

Yeah, too bad all those Texas Liberals and Soldiers took all everyone's guns away. Otherwise there wouldn't have been a shooting.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign spokesperson said the governor was in Denton, scheduled to attend a campaign event, when word of the shooting occured. There was no word on whether he has left Denton or if he was headed to Fort Hood.

Why would you bring non-combat, non-police into this area? Sit behind your desk watching CNN and get briefed by your staff and hold a news conference when something happens. Geez!

Go live in the UK, watch the BBC news on TV, then come back home and watch CNN or Fox. It's like day and night. It's not even a contest. American broadcast news is pathetic.

Welcome to Fark, go cry some more.

Translation: "I'm proud to be a douchebag."


Translation: You're on Fark. That website where the users intentionally write troll-lific headlines to get noticed and green lit. That website that pans everything. Expecting a snark free discussion of this event on Fark is unrealistic. So, go cry some more.

/So yeah, I guess that makes me proud to be a douchebag or something...

That's not saying much. If You People don't get your act together, we're going to invade and conquer you. It should take...what? The combined forces of the South Shore Mall Security and half of the cops working detail in Somerville.
