    Why do you consider an attack on a military base to be a terrorist act? Simply because it was committed by a Muslim in the name of Jihad doesn't make it so.

    But I just have to say GO GIRL! to the badass civilian cop who gunned this guy down after being hit multiple times. Who knows how many lives she saved by risking her own?

    True dat.

    That it occurred on a military base is irrelevant in my opinion. These were unarmed, non-combatants going about their daily business.

    Still soldiers and a legitimate military target. Military personnel and equipment are always a legitimate target.

    Think John Mohammad, the DC sniper.
    I remember being scared whenever he was on the loose, much more so than any other time (other than the time my High school got shot up in 2005, bet the thread is still around here somewhere).

    But I don't recall any intent to push an ideology or a religion it appeared to be nothing but the commitment to kill people.

    I think some of you would fret over the hairsplitting motivational nuances of the shooter while you were standing in his line of fire amid incoming rounds.

    I wouldn't worry about labeling it anything in that situation.

    Well, it's really too early to tell what this guy's motivations are.

    Either way, if it turns out there was some political/religious agenda behind his actions, then I'd say that it was not a terrorist attack. Like others said, I don't consider an attack on an army base a terrorist attack. In my opinion terrorism targets civilians, not military personnel.

    They were successful in sweeping his jihadism under the rug.

    John Allen Muhammad (born December 31, 1960) is a spree killer from the United States. With his younger partner, Lee Boyd Malvo, he carried out the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks, killing 10 people. Muhammad and Malvo were arrested in connection with the attacks on October 24, 2002, following tips from alert citizens. Born John Allen Williams, Muhammad joined the Nation of Islam in 1987 and later changed his surname to Muhammad.[1] Drawings by Malvo describe the murders as part of a "jihad" (Arabic for "struggle").[2]

    Just because he was a "jihadist" doesn't mean he was a terrorist.
