    Sad sad day! My wife and I always felt safe(r) on base... but that was from outsiders. Very rarely were we too concerned about one of our own brother in arms being the enemy. =(

    I really feel for these soldier's families.

    Yes he was a convert from VA. It is a sad day. My heart goes out to the families and victims.

    I'll be interested in knowing what their motivation was... I wouldn't be surprised to find out they belong to some "fundamentalist" movement.

    I haven't seen any reliable confirmation that the shooter is muslim.

    What would make you guess that?

    Oh, I don't know, recent history perhaps? The fact that 30 or so people have been shot, with 2 other suspects in custody equals some kind of conspiracy. The shooter is a psychiatrist and a muslim convert from Virginia. Now, we don't know for a fact at this point in time that the other 2 are muslim, but it's a good guess. People of like thinking tend to flock together.

    That's a little off-topic.

    We're at war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The news is reporting that the Major converted to muslim and didn't want to be deployed.

    It's a natural assumption to wonder if the other 2 soldiers in custody were also muslim.
