    Let me clue you and the rest of your ilk in on a little secret about religion. It's defined by those who practice it. That's why there are so many different sects and practices within a particular religion. Why do you think Christianity has changed so much? It's called modernization. Religion changes with the times. The only reason you haven't seen Islam change over time is because you didn't around it constantly. You don't practice it. What you have is the internet and a bunch of people who share your myopic point of view, repeating nonsense to each other until it's gospel. You and your pals use the writings in the Quaran as an excuse to vilify an entire culture regardless of their actions.

    It's a cheap and pathetic ruse to mask intolerance, fear, and ignorance.

    No, we're not ****ed. When all is said and done, the things I fear most in life have not a thing to do with Muslims or the fanatics within the religion. Now, if I'm ever crazy enough to move to Pakistan, then maybe I'll start worrying a little bit.

    I can't imagine an instance where an officer would go on an hour long rant about beheading infidels and pouring oil down their throats or making repeated anti-American rants and the military not stepping in and taking some kind of action. Not in post-9/11 America. I question the truthfulness of the those making the claims. A whole group of professional military officers all cowed by "political correctness" refuse to report a wild eyed Muslim nutjob among their ranks? Bull****. I don't buy it. I spent many years in the military pre and post 9/11. That crap doesn't go down like that. What I think is happening here is he was a quirky asshole but not to the degree that anyone would feel the need to take action against. Who knows how that "lecture" actually went down? The guy may have been reading verses from the Quran, not making literal statements, but now everyone remembers what a psycho extremist he was years later...but not extremist enough to do anything about back then. Right. From years and years of investigating homicide and other notable crimes I have found that peoples memories take a neat turn when something major like this happens and folks start asking questions.
    That's kinda what I was thinking... but my question was more specifically, in the millitary, if you are an 'anti-war' person that really doesn't have the heart to kill a man... wouldn't you have that instinct weeded out of you, or you out of the training??


    I have no idea about this stuff. I've heard of it but I don't put too much stock into it still being practiced today.
    Well, on top of McVeigh being on those 'SSRI's' he was a patient of a doctor that just happened to be the TOP DOCTOR involved in the 'mk-ultra' experiments... I honestly don't know very much about this, but my understanding is that the film 'manchurian candidate' is a litteral possibility under the types of processes they put the victim through.

    Now, it may be unlikely, granted... but he was a psyciatrist in the millitary (so there is the potential of being exposed to the types that would be involved in that type of project / operation), and having word of him discussing issues / alluding to his plan / antiwar sentiment, etc... are all, from my understanding, 'symptoms' that you would see in that type of case.

    I, like anyone not directly involved, lacks the information to say this concretely, but if the man wakes up and claims to have no idea why he's being held, would be the next sign...

    Look, I'm not trying to get into the whole 'conspiracy' aspect, but since these programs are known to exist and the circumstance, the question must be raised.

    When I say coward I mean mentally. He couldn't deal with deploying. This guy wasn't going to see combat, he was a psychiatrist or something. I have no idea if he was using prescription meds and I'm not going to really inject that because it's too much of a speculation (meaning there is no mention that I've found in the media reports).


    From the media reports what I've reasoned is that his mental state was compromised and he went on a killing spree. He was obviously very engrossed with his religion. Religion is a very powerful thing when decoupled from reason. This man's mental state could have led to his delusion that he was in fact doing Gods work. This sort of thing has played out in several murders throughout history. To say this is a problem with Islam (in this case) is inaccurate. It's a problem with mental illness. And short term mental illness brought about by severe depression, stress, and anxiety is not outside the realm of possibility.
    Look, I understand your not wanting to speculate, on whether or not he was taking those drugs... I forget the exact numbers, but those drugs are a factor in the 95% range of mass shootings that happen. The depression factors all play into the potential that this psychiatrist was self-medicating, and ended up with an averse reaction that caused him to act out on his frustrations.

    You are correct.
    The ultimate point is that whatever the situation we don't know what really happened... I mean, was there clarification with the other 2 shooters?? I see people calling for this mans' death on partial information, all the more reason to have a trial.

    People were lamenting the blood thirsty Christian barbarians not so long ago. But then again you didn't have Fox, CNN, and the big three bringing that into your living room back then.

    Fearful, ignorant fools. I pity some of you. And I weep for our future. Religion has no power. It's the people who practice it. Some of you have no idea what you are letting yourself be sucked into. You will take the actions of a relative few and let that define your view of an entire culture, while at the same time dismissing the actions of literally hundreds of millions. You are like sheep in this. Easily herded in this direction or that.

    Think about what you're saying when you foster the idea that Islam is bad and must be contained or eliminated because it will surely lead to doom because "that's what's in the Quaran." You are endorsing perpetual conflict because of the actions of a very small portion of the population of this planet.

    You are no better than the firebrands who convince young Muslim men to take up arms. The only difference is you wrap yourself in the flag and patriotism and call yourself good Americans.

    Well not necessarily. You think it would, but you never know until you are actually faced with that situation. Further there are plenty of conscientious objectors in the military. They serve in non-combat positions. Well by plenty I mean there are some.

    Well I suppose anything is possible. Two years ago I would have laughed at the suggestion of MK ULTRA. Now, not so much.

    This is absolutely a possibility, and I've thought about it as soon as word started spreading about his emotional profile.


    The ultimate point is that whatever the situation we don't know what really happened... I mean, was there clarification with the other 2 shooters?? I see people calling for this mans' death on partial information, all the more reason to have a trial.
    I initially wanted this man to die, and I'd being lying if I didn't admit I'm a death penalty hypocrite. I don't normally support the death penalty because I don't believe that our justice system is in the business of dispensing vengeance, and that is all the death penalty is. But this incident is one of those that made me immediately wish for this guys death.

    But you are right, we don't have all the information. That's kind of been my point from day one. In the face of all this nonsensical anti-Islam fear mongering and ignorant rhetoric I think that a simple call for reason wouldn't be too much to ask for. Apparently it is.

    But you and I and a few others can contemplate this issue without gathering our pitchforks and torches.

    Sorry, replace peace with whatever word for appeasment you'd like to use.

    I don't understand what you're doing. Why are you trying to place labels on people that do not apply? Neither Lerxt, nor I have made excuses for this man's actions.

    Just because I refuse to use an ignorant broad brush to paint all Muslims as potential threats does not mean I am blind to those who actually ARE threats. Like I said, I don't walk around thinking that ALL men are rapists either.

    Ok, I meant why are people trying to appease Islam AS IF they are afraid of it. That was directed to the people who say that we need to give "Islam a chance" and **** like that.


    and while I'm not afraid of every Muslim, I'm not going to be caught flat footed either. My surivival and the survival of my family, friends, and allies is paramount and I'll be damned if some extremists, who may or may not be the tip of the iceberg, take that from me.
