    Fort Hood was just an incidence of workplace violence, wasn't it?

    You can call his actions what you want, to fit your own personal definition of terrorism. There is nothing wrong with that. However, the government has to work within it's framework of laws, and we both know if the government deemed something to be what it is not necessarily under the law, you would be the first one crying about it.
    And we both know that if the government declared this was not Workplace Violence (which is joke in and of itself) that you, Redress, would not be arguing that it was Workplace Violence. So I say we stalemated.

    As usual.

    I doubt very much I would use the word "just" to describe it in any way.

    If I thought for a moment that this was just some guy who happened to crack so to speak, then I would agree that it was workplace violence. However, there seems to be a lot more involved with that particular incident IMO. I believe there were mixed up (as are most Islamic extremists) religious/political motivations.

    People practice their religion in a respectable and civilized manner all the time. They're like other ideologies in that sense; some are good, others are bad.

    I am pretty indifferent on the label "workplace violence". Not what I call it, but it does fall within the definition. See, there is this odd idea some of us have that words have meaning, and that the government should follow the laws it has, even when it isn't convenient. That you feel otherwise says alot.
