A 50-year-old Navy employee whose employment status had recently changed has been identified as the deceased gunman, ABC News reported.
‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
Despite all the speculation in the media coverage about the terrible tragedy at the Washington Navy Yard, the following are among the only facts known so far:
1. There were casualties, both injuries and deaths
2. A suspected gunman was killed
Whether any other persons were involved in the shootings and the possible motive or motives are unknown.
In any case, my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this shooting, along with their families.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I think it is more likely to be one of those Christians you here so much about. I understand there are lots of them in the U.S.
There is even a possibility, outside possibility I admit, that it is some crazy person that has no strong religious affiliation.
How many incidents of gunmen shooting at multiple victims has happened in the U.S. ober that last 10 years?
How many of the perpatrators have been Muslim?
I can hardly believe that someone would write a post like yours. I am continually amazed on this site.
