    It might (or may not) interest you to know that the minority that by far has been humiliated and insulted the most in the military has been women. Since we haven't seen any women slaughtering their fellow soldiers, perhaps you are shedding a little too much crocodile tears for this Muslim, who had deeper issues religious issues and incorporated cultural, heritage, and Islamic family values.
    How do you know these facts about him? Are you sure you just are not stereotyping?

    Like I stated before, maybe this guy just had a really aggravating ingrown toe nail. Slaughtering soldiers was his way of lashing back at it.

    The policies need to be revised. Anyone with a background like his shouldn't be involved in a war against those his roots belong with, to which he still shows allegiance.

    It's unfortunate, and some need to move beyond this "raghead = bad" sentiment...that's what accounted for the asinine attack on Sikhs after 9/11.
    Well, it seems there are worse "rightists" out there than big, bad Ethereal...

    He was born and raised in America. Are you actually arguing that anyone whose parents were born overseas should be banned from joining the military because they might harbor allegiance to a foreign nation?

    There are 37,000 non-citizens on active duty in the military. There are many more who are naturalized and even more who are first-generation. You would kick them all out?

    1) He didn't chooose to slaughter civilians.
    2) He didn't choose to slaughter his chain of command.
    3) He didn't choose to commit suicide.

    He made a statement against those who...what?
    Assuming "Islam" was the cause of this shooting, what do you propose as a solution?

    I would kick out those who are dressing like this:

    Good point, we should definitely kick people out of the military because we think they dress funny. Got any other brilliant ideas? Maybe kick out everyone whose name you have trouble pronouncing?

    I'm embarrassed for you.

    The man clearly has allegiances to Islam with his garb and when taken along with his comments on the Internet (and made to other military personnel) they reveal he is a risk to have in a military unit faced with its current mission.

    If this small piece of common sense evades your judgment, I am embarrassed for you.
