Fort Hood Shooting

Wow... where to begin.

I am infuriated and embarrassed. What has our society come to when a base full of soldiers, trained in the use of weapons and lethal force, standing ready to deploy and visit harm upon the enemies of the United States, are herded into a victim disarmament zone, ready for slaughter like so many cattle. When my fellow soldiers, each of whom I trust with my life, are not trusted by our beauracratic leadership, both military and civilian, with the tools to defend their own lives.

Not to mention that the perpetrator was a MUSLIM, of Arab descent, and reportedly shouted a phrase in Arabic, Allahu Akbar, that is the usual last words of jihadi suicide bombers, yet the whipped dog mainstream media is afraid of drawing the obvious conclusion, while they wildly and irresponsibly speculate about every other facet of the attack. This man was no pyschotic criminal, his past is littered with indicators that show alignment with a particularly anti-American and homicidal version of Islam. Comparing suicide bombers with self-sacrificing soldiers is just one example.

Lets make it totally clear, this was not a crime, catastrophe, not even an act of terrorism, but an ATTACK on the United States military by an operative of our enemy - Radical Islam. I may be labeled racist or xenophobic or any number of terms used to slime political opponents and stifle free speech, but without properly identifying the enemy, he can never be defeated.

We are waging a religious war. This labeling is disastrous for our public relations with the rest of the Muslim world, but it is the truth nonetheless. This is not a battle between Christianity and Islam, it is not a new Crusade. It is struggle to the death between a secular western society and the followers of radicalized Islam - Islamofascists. It is no different from the worldwide war against secular fascism in the 1930s and 40s. The only difference is that we as a society are too chickenshit to properly label the enemy as being associated with a particular religion for fear of being labeled intolerant. As long as this attitude persists, we will never win.

Our soldiers fight this war everywhere, 24/7 - 365. They deserve the support, the trust, and the tools to effectively wage it, both abroad and on their bases at home. This attack is not the first on a military base and will not be the last. As our enemies realize that military bases are easy to infiltrate and extremely soft targets, these attacks will increase in quantity and severity. There are two options forward. Either arm the soldiers on base (this includes at National Guard armories), or persist in a negligent policy of disarmament and continue to pay the butcher's bill in soldier's lives.

Update: Mike Vanderboegh sums up similar sentiments at Sipsey Street Irregulars

Update: Obama gets in on the "cultural sensitivity" circle jerk, telling us "don't jump to conclusions". Apparently to our dear leader, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a friggen duck, its a giraffe.

And apparently this was all caused by a slip of paper
