    Prayers for those killed, their families and for those injured.

    Hope they catch the bastard shooters. Reports fuzzy there; seems as if 1 or 2 have been captured, one still at large.

    That’s easy to answer Mat.

    Lets hope the death toll does not go up and the injured ALL fully recover.

    Most of all lets hope ALL the bastards that have perpetrated this horror get a cap busted into each and every one of there heads live on the Chicken Noodle Network so all the pansy ass Liberals know what can happen if you drop the ball concerning the internal security of the country and while finding excuses for radical thinking.

    The next BIG what if about this situation: If this is a terrorist attach from a outside source or a home grown Muslim based attack.

    What will that fuck head OBAMA do……..more than likely nothing. Be prepared for lots of finger pointing and it’s more than likely our fault because we are American from the White House.

    Where did some of you hear the name of Malik Abdul Hasan. Even Fox was cou about the name until 4:03 Mountain Time.

    Of course, I suspected that instantly. The next thing I suspect is a black man who recently converted to Islam.

    What they are saying now is deliberate execution style killings, but

    “FBI doesn’t suspect terrorism” Right

    “Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America,” Biden was quoted telling a fundraiser in Seattle on Sunday. “Remember I said it standing here, if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

    When I joined the U.S, Army in 1960 They asked me
    if I was a member of the Irish Republician Army (IRA) I was not. I was from Ireland and wanted to work and live in the United States. I did.

    How in the name of jeeeasssus did this muddrfokr
    Malik Nidal Hasan get into the Army? Don’t they
    ash questions anymore? Is our military so fukin
    scared that they can only deal with the queer
    problem? “don’t ask don’t tell.” What? Are we
    ediots at the recruiting stations? I know it is
    a difficult situationBut how in the name of Jesus
    can the US Army allow a moslem psychiatrist deal
    with red blooded amaricans from Tennessee, Florida.Ohio, Mississippi, Colorado, and even
    New York? How can Dr. Malik Midal Hasan deal with
    the likes of Audie Leon Murphy, Gen. George Patton, Lt. Gen. “Chesty” Puller.? Was scumbag3
    Malik Midal Hasan a mole? How do prevent against moles? I’ve said enough.

    I don’t understand a few things. There have been reports all day about “poor job evaluations” and such. So why the hell was he promoted to MAJOR recently?

    And now Feds are saying he was “flagged” and they were watching him for internet postings and stuff. Why was he still ON the base then? As a MAJOR? With WEAPONS?

    We are witnessing the suicide of the West. “All that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” – or something to that effect. Why we acquiesce to our own destrucion is a mystery to me. Close the borders, throw the bastards out, deny them the opportunity. The democrats want to destroy the United States in one fell swoop, the republicans want to destroy it a piece at a time – Wake the F*ck Up!
