    They were not unprofessionals engaging in a criminal act. They were Defense Contractors in the field acting on the behalf of the US government and yes they took oaths i'm sure and were acting in the name of their god.

    If that is the case? Can't this one shooters acts be explained away as being the same thing? After all he was just a unprofessional engaging in a criminal act right?

Buy the media releasing these letters or reading whole or parts of the letter they are only giving the sicko what he wants.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree 100%. By making the statements of these loons public, we counter-intuitively reward them for their despicable actions.

    The Pentagon, a military base, was attacked by Muslim extremists. If we call that a terrorist attack, wouldn't we call Fort Hood a terorist attack as well?

    I believe that it was more of an Islamic inspired 'going postal' incident. I don't think the guy was part of an organized terrorist group. I think he had the usual Islamic resentments of Western culture, became increasingly influenced by that POV, started feeling more and more alienated from the mainstream, then snapped.

    Jamesrage is taking the calm road on this one. Never thought I'd see reason with this fella.

    Oh lawd.
    That's not what I said, is it? No, what I said was if this was a terrorist attack then a terrorist was openly serving as an Officer in the US military. Quite a bit different from terrorists living amongst civilians in secret.

    Here's an interesting article on this.

    Terrorism or Tragic Shooting? Analysts Divided on Fort Hood Massacre - FOXNews.com

    I have some questions. Let's say that this was a suicide bombing, instead of a shooting. Would that qualify it as terrorism? This was basically a suicide mission on this man's part. Is it only terrorism if he is part of an organized group? What's the difference between the Islamic motivated act of an individual that seeks to disrupt American national goals and acts done with organized backing?

    From another thread - Which of these do you consider terrorism:

    1) Muslim shoots up building because he believes his faith requires it
    2) Muslim shoots up building because he has mental issues
    3) Muslim shoots up building because he has mental issues and believes that his faith allows it in certain circumstances
    4) Muslim shoots up building because he was bullied and wants revenge
    5) Police raid a radical Muslim compound, Muslims shoot back, killing police
    6) Christian shoots up building because he believes his faith requires it
    7) Christian shoots up building because he has mental issues
    8) Christian shoots up building because he has mental issues and believes that his faith allows it in certain circumstances
    9) Christian shoots up building because he was bullied and wants revenge
    10) Police raid a radical Christian compound, Christians shoot back, killing police

    I'm not asking this because I think I have the answer, but because I think it's a useful way of thinking about the issue.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
