We have to be very careful about ‘demonising’ one section of the Nation!

So you are an American Army Major, sworn on oath to defend the Constitution of your nation. You are also a Muslim. You confer with terrorist sympathisers, you visit terror web-sites: you finally decide that your brand of Muslim Islam should continue making war on America, so you load up with a specially-selected Belgian-made FN 5-7 automatic pistol; you also buy, over a two-three week period, fourteen more extended-hold magazines, and packed them with 420 rounds of SS192 body-armour-piercing ammunition. You also purchased two laser sights; one red, suitable for indoor shooting, and one green, specifically for outdoor use!

It was over at Fort Hood in 10 minutes. Hasan strode into the soldier readiness center after lunch Nov. 5 with the Five-seven tucked under his combat uniform and 16 magazines in his utility pockets. Due to Army rules, he had every reason to believe no one else would be armed.

At a 45-seat waiting area, Hasan took one of the few empty seats and bowed his head. Suddenly, he stood, screamed “Allahu Akbar!” and began spraying bullets. The pop-pop-pop-pop sounded to some soldiers like firecrackers and to others like an M-16 firing on full auto. Some said his laser sights flashed through the gun smoke like a surreal light show.

In the chaos, some soldiers realized that they’d been hit only when they saw their own blood. Others said the rounds slammed like sledgehammers or baseball bats. Bullets tumbled through flesh, shattered bone and ruptured organs. More ripped through backs, arms and necks as the wounded crawled for cover.

Hasan changed magazines too fast for anyone to overtake him. He killed two men who tried. Survivors recalled that Hasan was silent and blank-faced. One said it was as if he were walking around a mall.

Hasan took his hunt outside, and a civilian cop soon confronted him. He shot her twice, shattering her knee and hip. Her gun jammed. She thought he would finish her off. He turned away. A second police officer wounded and paralyzed Hasan.

Inside the building, investigators determined that Hasan got off 146 shots, hitting people about 60 percent of the time. Outside, he shot 68 times and hit two people. In all, about 40 percent of his bullets maimed or killed. By contrast, trained police shooting in street confrontations hit bad guys 5 to 20 percent of the time.

The President, along with the lick-spittle Pentagon, called the massacre ‘Workplace Violence’. Obama never once called the killings ‘terrorism’, never once condemned his pet religion, never once called it like it was; until the days after the San Bernadino shootings, when he perhaps realised that the truth had to come out from the White House eventually, and accepted that Fort Hood’s Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a terrorist, his actions were totally linked with terror, and the ‘Workplace violence’ scenario hadn’t really worked.

In the latest attack upon America, with pipe-bombs menacing a Marine corps charity run, and twin pressure-cooker bombs menacing a high-volume shopping and residential New York area, which anyone with at least double IQ figures would have instantly recognised as a ‘terror attack’; slow-speaking and possibly slow-witted Mayor de Blasio stated it was “intentional,” but he added “there is no evidence at this point that there is a terror connection.” He also said that “there was no credible specific threat to New York.” So three bombs are set, two explode; and yet there is ‘no credible threat to New York’.

I presume if he had been in charge on September 11, 2001 when those two jets slammed into the World Trade Center skyscrapers, it would have been filed as ‘pilot and navigator error’!

    Americans need strict, careful gun control. They’re too immature. Alongside that, we need to start talking in an adult and mature fashion about Islam and why these people are now killing others. Not the usual baying of dogs or the Lefty squeals of how great it is: People are trying to kill us and our way of life. They are always Muslim and they are dangerous. The religion is dangerous.

      Islam is not a religion:- it’s a violent expansionist political system which originally had a bastardised twisted form of Judaism grafted onto it, which enabled its foot soldiers to behave in the basest manner with the blessing of their deity and hence a degree of moral justification.

      The appeal of unlimited slaves, concubines and women to rape was undoubtedly a good recruiting ploy aimed at 7th/8th century African youth.

        TT. Indeed so. What is the remedy, given that Islam is the violent political system we know it is?
        It may be a risky line to take for Trump, but it would be interesting if he declared that for every ‘Allahu Akbar’ incident occurring in the USA, whether resulting in fatalities or not, a prescribed number of mosques would immediately be shut down and their imams deported.
        I believe that would have a deterrent effect to some extent, and put pressure on local Moslem communities which tolerate violent terrorists in their midst, but do nothing, to take a stronger line in repudiating all violence or risk seriously reducing over time their presence in the USA.
        Logic dictates that without some remedial action the dangerous status quo will simply continue unchecked. But what the political fall-out would be is anybody’s guess.

      Americans need strict gun control. Heck, that sound like a typical lefty. Ft Hood had strict gun control. The men in the readiness centre were unarmed and they were the armed forces ! The huge gun-killing rates in America are almost wholly confined to four or five major cities all controlled by Democrats and all having strict gun controls. Take those cities out of the stats and the rest of America is comparatively peaceful and comes way down the world list of violent, gun-death countries. Go and consult Bill Whittle.

      The reality of America is that criminals kill while ordinary law abiding majority people do not. Terrorists kill but the average majority man in the street does not. Nutters kill but sane majority people do not. Heck, even the few who go on rampages with just one or two exceptions were card-carrying democrat voters.

      Every country needs less gun control. It is the governments way to ensure that they control the population.

      Only when these nutters face armed people willing to stop them will they decide that it isn’t worth it.

      Of course the problem now is that we have brought up a society that goes all light headed when they see a picture of a gun and those that are dumb enough to believe the propaganda put out by our governments. Those wimps don’t have to buy one but the rest of us should be able to defend ourselves.

      ‘Gun free zone’ translates in Arabic to ‘easy targets here’.

    The answer would appear to be to demonise and persecute/prosecute anyone who raises their head above the parapet to object.

    We all know appeasing an increasingly confident enemy, and they are the enemy now within, always works well…a face palm smiley would fit in well at this point.
