Fort Hood: When the Doctor Goes Crazy
Maj. Malik Hasan was a mental health worker who refused to return to the battle field. What did he know and when did he know it that caused him to unleash such terror upon his comrades? The irony is that it makes us wonder if the doctor was this sick, what might be the condition of his patients? Imagine, if they are sicker than he then we have a problem of an extreme degree. We know the post traumatic stress syndrome of soldiers returning from war--had Dr. Hasan seen too much stress in his patients, to the degree he would rather kill them than see them return to the battlefield, himself included?
These are questions we must ask ourselves, since these are our sons and daughters going off to war. We know America has no business in Muslim lands--nothing can come of their presence no matter how long they remain. The war in Iraq appears to be winding down but in my mind the war has not started because the ultimate war shall be between the Sunnis and Shia who have a date with destiny and America can only delay the day of judgment between two sects that have been at war since the death of Prophet Muhammad.
To delay the rise of Shia Islam and its expansion to the Mediterranean at the urging of the corrupt, oppressive Sunni regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, the Gulf States and Israel, the Americans will prolong their departure until they have diluted Shia majority rule in Iraq, and in the process check Iran, a brother Shia nation.
With its presence in Afghanistan and Pakistan, America sinks deeper into the lands of people who clearly have no fear of death and worship it like a thirsty man craves water. So we should expect more suicides and homicides among the American military as they continue encountering Muslim death angels. The Christian soldiers will eventually depart the Muslim lands as they did during the Crusades, even if it takes one hundred years. For sure, the Muslims will never stop fighting until they depart. Meanwhile, we shall continue seeing the mental deterioration of US troops who have no mission other than to escape poverty and ignorance by becoming mercenaries for the capitalist war machine who profits greatly from supplying the tools of war made by corporations headed by retired military men and women.
