Shootings at Fort Hood - November 5th 2009, 10:35 PM

Let's keep this from becoming political on here. I just wanted to encourage everyone to keep the soldiers and families of Ft. Hood in their thoughts and prayers.

There is a story about what happened in Texas today. Very sad stuff.

This is really upsetting, to me at least. I have friends in the military, and this is just scary.I feel for the families. Do they know why he did it yet?

They say it was because he was being deployed to Iraq, which he really didn't want, and apparently he was harassed quite a bit about his ethnicity.

Not 100% sure on what happened, will leave that for someone else to answer.

However, it has definitely rocked the world, it was the first item on the news here in lil ol New Zealand.

The army psychiatrist was supposd to be deployed into the war and was heated and shot 12 people in one of the buildings and 31 were injured. The shooter is also one of the dead. They also believe that two other soldiers are involved in the shooting and are in custody.

Going on a shooting spree because you don't want to go to Iraq is not terrorism... Actually I'm amazed that the army from the outset said it probably wasn't terrorism. Things really have changed.

The guy in question was actually still alive, but critical, last thing I heard.

President Obama has ordered that all flags at the white house and U.S. federal buildings be flown at half staff until Veterans Day to honor those lost and the families left behind.

I thought the same thing when I saw his name.

Last I heard he was in stable condition, which is good because now we have a chance to find out why he did it. Apparently he's a psychiatrist so I think the reason is going to be an interesting one.

Shows how even those trained in the fields of psychiatry/psychology can fall victim to the very things they work to prevent.

I can't imagine what the families/friends/comrades are going through right now.

God save us all. It's only natural he was not only Muslim, but Palestinian.

Are you suggesting that his religion and national origin had something to do with this? Because I highly doubt that this is the case.

Anyway, the shooter is alive and in stable condition, and the person who shot him is also alive. The final tally (last I heard) was 13 dead and 31 wounded.

Absolutely awful.

I heard 13 dead and 30 wounded. I'm assuming that means that someone died as a result of their injuries.

He went to the same Mosque as two of the men who hijacked the 9/11 planes.
