yea, fox had coverage actually while it was happening.. live.. disturbing to say the least..
I still do not support muslims in the usa military.. nor did i support iranians in the usaf in 1979, that's why we boxed them up and shipped them out when the hostage situation happened..
those that do not learn from history are doomed repeat it.. case in point..
Call me a bit racist (I'm a big girl I can handle it) although the United States military should consist of citizens that were born here in the states! Not people that moved over here or whatever..You never know when people may turn. Especially with all the iraq, Afghan bullshit.
Another thing that gets me going is that the Military in my opinion (on the posts) are secure. Far more secure than the "real world". (They are their own little world)...If shit like this can happen on a Military post than what the fuck can happen in a random walmart or target, or downtown, etc...WTF
I agree with O.Z. terrorists come in all different forms. And right now everyone is set on placing labels on middle easterners. Many of whom leave their countries and come here to serve in our Armed Forces because they are so against their countries views. What we hear about the things that go on within the military bases are about 80% lies anyways. I know this from experience. But I disagree with the fact that it doesnt happen on bases a lot. There is a lot of shit that happens that we never hear about.
Same situation for me except my cousin hung himself in his barracks, but the army tells it a little different.
Has everyone seen this?
I have many friends in the army and a lot of friends on this post. I am deeply distressed that this has happen and I know how the atmosphere must be on fort hood right now.
My heart goes out to all my brothers in arms and I hope all of them stay safe tonight.
The life of a solder is not for everyone. Its not a easy life even if you never set foot on a battle field its still a hard life to live.
I was on a small post of no more then 5000 people and in the 4 years I spent there there was 10 people who ended there own lives. This was just in the building next to me. Hows that for
I both loved and hated my life in the army
