    He looks very middle-eastern to me.
    Middle-easterners look like anyone else, once they shave off that long hair and those big long bushy beards, as obviously they would have to do if they were active members of the US army.

    Anyone else a little suspect of the loyalties of Muslims & Muslim converts in the US military?

    Or am I just setting the table for another user to make an ultra-PC statement & gain a boatload of PC thank you's for it?

    I think that if they prove this has anything to do with his heritage, maybe we can entertain these claims. Till then, there's not much given as to motive.

    I was a little surprised.
    When I heard 3 shooters, 12 dead, I suspected gang activity.
    I've heard there's a lot of it in the army.
    Fort Hood is also a notoriously violent place, even compared to other army bases.

    .

    Yeah, and watch the MSM spin this to be a case of PSTD and never - ever entertain the possibility that the shootings were motivated by religious hatred.

    I'm more than a little suspect of their loyalties. This isn't the first time that a Muslim soldiers killed other soldiers.

    I knew it wasn't gang violence. Street gangs don't have the guts to take on a military target, on post. Not something this big, anyway. The MP's would go through Killeen and Coperas Cove busting heads like it was the Night of The Long Knives. And, if the local cops weren't involved in the head knocking, they would just look the other way.

    I was at Fort Hood, twice during the 90's and I never saw it as notoriously violent place.
