Don't ignore potential Muslim threat

  • Follow Letters

Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey said he's reluctant to attach the Muslim religion to the Fort Hood massacre because of possible damage to the military's diversity, which would be in his opinion a greater disaster.

Well, isn't that special? The Army's diversity is more important than the lives of our servicemen? Tell that to the loved ones of those who died.

With this mentality at the top of the command chain, it's no wonder the military failed to investigate the shooter. They had all the outward signs but refused to act because of blind adherence to political correctness. The armed forces are not some social experiment in which we try to fill the ranks with every type soldier whether they are suited for duty or not. Not everyone is soldier material.

How on Earth can our military protect us citizens if it cannot even protect its own soldiers standing on seemingly safe ground inside a secure military base on U.S. soil? They can't unless they fully recognize and take action against known or suspected threats from all sources, including those from within. The army must be proactive in its diligence on all fronts.

Despite the niceties and deafening silence from the national media, the man on the street will tell you we are very much at war with radical disciples of the Muslim faith; it is the common denominator in all our military endeavors at this time. Nearly every U.S. soldier deployed throughout the world is pitted against a follower of the Muslim faith. Muslims kill their own women and children to commit terrorist acts; can we at least cast a jaundiced eye in the direction of our own Muslim service personnel? They're certainly in positions to do great harm if they become so inclined.

The sooner this country, the military and the mainstream media begin to openly declare the obvious Muslim angle to our military engagements, the sooner we will be able to defeat our enemy. You simply must know your enemy in order to defeat him. A continuation of political correctness will only serve to expose more Americans to harm.

People seem to forget hussein

People seem to forget hussein is muslim.Ask yourself what is first in your own life-your god or your country.THEN ask the same about hussein.Do you REALLY think hussein will forsake allah for this country?Remember,for a muslim to defy allah is certain death.

I think Obumbler has certian

I think Obumbler has certian and many sympathies for the muslim religion but I really think he is a marxist socialist first. Obumbler wants wealth redistribution and thinks if he kisses the back side of muslim leaders he can reduce muslim hatred of America, but he is wrong...The attack at Fort Hood is nothing more than the opening salvo of the muslim extremist..expect many more..

Good letter Mr. Smith. I

Good letter Mr. Smith. I agree wholeheartedly. Even in our society as a whole we have seen where the Muslim faith has outweighed even the laws of this country in the form of "honor killings". Christianity has been blamed for being a violent religion in the past. But you know what? It was IN THE PAST. Christianity has evolved into a religion of peace where Islam is still very much back in the middle ages even though the mainstream Muslim professes "we are of peace, always".

Lets not rush to conclusions

Lets not rush to conclusions was uttered, yet the facts stand on their own merits. Hasan is a Muslim. He should Alluah Akbar before he shot over fifty people. He contacted AQ. He emailed a radical cleric, some of the dialogue has been released stating he would see him in the next life. Hasan gave away all his belongings in the days prior, although he was not going to be deployed for several months (premeditated). He briefed about Islam and killing the Infidel and nobody did anything about it. He spoke to soldiers he was treating about Islam in a confrontational manner. A reasonable person would connect the dots and come up with the same conclusion 99 out of a 100 times. Casey is a politically correct hack who has placed a higher value on diversity and PC than on the lives of 14 dead people (the fetus is number 14 for clarity). Muslims have a protected status, as do many other "minority" status groups, and can say and do whatever they please with no repurcussions (look at the Panther meeting downtown at the statue regarding district 1 and what was said there). PC is dangerous, and has killed many that the signs should have been obvious, but ignored for fear of offending.

Many Muslims, including

Many Muslims, including college students in Pakistan and mainstream journalists in Pakistan, are convinced that United States is at war against Islam or at least that United States is pressing Pakistan, a country of 177 million with a Muslim majority, into civil war. A female journalist asked Sec. of State Hillary Clinton during her visit there why U.S. drones missiles launched into Pakistan should not be considered an act of terrorism. United States has launched a long war that is considered by many on the receiving end to be a war on Islam or a war for U.S. hegemony in Iraq, in Afghanistan & Pakistan. The unwinnable U.S. wars in Iraq & Afghanistan have succeeded in destabilizing entire regions of the world & have earned America the animosity of millions perhaps billions of people. So United States now turns towards purging itself of suspected enemy sympathizers - enemies which we created for ourselves by our actions. Letter writer Lawrence Smith calls for a witch hunt & purge of loyal Americans just like occurred in colonial time in Salem, Massachusetts & in the 1950s during the McCarthy era. ACES is glad to assist in posting another hate-filled letter from a ignorant xenophobe.

JohnHatesAmericaCain I don't

JohnHatesAmericaCain
I don't think the letter writer exactly called for a witch hunt. More like "casting a jaundiced eye" at those Muslims that exhibit suspecting behavior. You cannot ignore the obvious and it should be perceived as being diligent to routinely look a little deeper at those who open themselves to scrutiny by their own actions. Mr Caine, you are without question one of the worst Americans I have had the misfortune to run across. I'm glad your sentiments are not mainstream with even your fellow liberals. YOu remind me of Atlantas Cynthia McKenny who finally got banished to the wood shed for outrageous and sometimes treasonous tirades against her country. America is a wonderful place isn't it? Our soldiers died to make sure you have the right to peddle your offensive drivel in this forum.

JohnHatesAmericaCain, keep in

JohnHatesAmericaCain, keep in mind that it is the terrorists who have hijacked Islam that we are against, not ALL of the Muslims. It is the Muslim that all non believers (ie Infidels) should be killed, according to Allah and the Koran. So it appears to be embedded in their religion. The terror started in the 70's with the Palestineans killing the Isreali athletes in Munich and continued through the 80's, 90's and continues today. The US has not gone on the offensive until after 9-11, although Clinton gave a half hearted effort to deflect from the Lewinsky affair. I personally believe that all people, all religions should coexist in peace. However, not everyone feels that way, and if our life and country as we know it is in danger, then I ahve no problem going on the offensive to protect our citizens.

OK Mr Smith. Lets treat the local law enforcement agency the exact same way: Research their backgroud for militia associations, or Son of Confederates, or any anti-American groups, or known racist groups with a history of violence against people of color. Lets get those answers and such individuals weeded out and identified. It won't happen. It won't happen because these question NEVER get aired by U know who. In fact, they may be gone in a few minutes...ask yourself why?

Justazz says "known racist

Justazz says "known racist groups with a history of violence against people of color". How about violence against people of different religion, nationality, or violence against women. Those should be brought up as well. But of course, you are a racist yourself and only concerned about "people of color". Does that include the yellow skinned Asians, the olive skinned Arabs, the light brown skinned Hispanics? You show your true racism in every post.

CAIN, please show me a Muslim leader, in America or abroad, that is speaking out against terrorist attacks by Muslims. Don't know one? Guess what...there isn't one. That's because there isn't one Muslim in the world that wants peace unless they are in control. Good luck living in that society...idiot!

I didn't notice where the letter mentioned anything about black or white, or race. But you did find a way to attach some black/white anology to it. Justus is TOTALLY immered in a black world. Tell me when your morning paper is delivered do you notice if the delivery person is black or white? Or how about if you go to the bank, is it on your radar screen that the teller is black or white? If you stop at a red light, are you checking out the car next to you to see if the driver is black or white? Every event that goes on around you is twisted and opined for "blackism". You should seek therapy. Or perhaps move to a 100 percent black country where you do not have to worry about crossing paths with white people. Jeez

We refuse to see the world

We refuse to see the world through terrorist eyes. Instead, we superimpose liberal-arts-faculty values on bloodthirsty zealots, asking what we've done to make them so angry. The result? We grant captured terrorists more rights and better treatment than nonviolent offenders in a US county jail. The laws of war provide for the battlefield execution of illegal combatants - those who refuse to wear uniforms or identifying insignia or who commit atrocities. Instead, we give them flu shots before American citizens can get them. When a madcap ideologue such as Attorney General Eric Holder tells Congress we mustn't be afraid to try terrorists in our judicial system, he gets it exactly wrong. The terrorists believe we're afraid to kill them. And they're right. Bring terrorists to Manhattan? They should never have made it to Gitmo. 'Fighting' terror with wishful thinking - By Ralph Peters

Justus is so overcome with hatred he is to be pitied and not taken seriously. He cannot help but rail against everything and everyone who does not look, believe, or act like him. He's in deep need of prayer....Justus is a true believer in what he says because he has finally crossed over the line......

Are people in this country

Are people in this country against Islam and all Muslims? I hope the answer to that is no. However, that does not mean we should accept the radical muslims. They have vowed to kill all infidels and are willing to kill themselves in the process. However, the Ft Hood massacre was commited by a radical Muslim. Why mince words? This man hated Americans and what we stand for. Perhaps it is time to rid the military of those who cannot or willnot protect America and American interests. After all, is that not the purpose of the military?

I for one could care less

I for one could care less what other countries think of us. I support our military men no matter if I agree with our policy or not. Remember governments make policy soldiers take orders. The unamercian Cain hasn't railed against Obama like he said he would. He is a see through liberal crybaby that hates Amercia and Israel. Justus names only white groups as hate groups. Gee what a surprise, I have never heard anything hateful the Sons of the Confederacy have done. I know there are white hate groups just as there are black hate groups I'm not as niave as justus is. We must remember this though. In war there are 2 things you must accept. Number 1: your enemy believes in his cause enough that he is willing to give his life for it. Number 2: it is your job to make sure he succeeds in that endeavor. Cain and justus don't seem to understand that radical muslims don't want to live among you and allow you to practice the faith of your choice. They want you to submit to allah or die. If you hate this country so much you can leave anytime you want. I have said before there are plenty here that will donate to your travel fund for a oneway ticket.

Justas - I don't know of anybody who is not of color - some color. How about we just get rid of all racist groups and all those who spew hatred with everything they say? But that will mean that Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, you, and many others of your ilk will also have to go. Perhaps you will find Kenya or Liberia more to your liking?

AWyld1 - I agree with your 9:00 post except for one word. "radical" should be changed to "fundamentalist". Radicals go outside their faith to meet their objectives. Fundamentalists follow their faith and teachings to the letter. The Muslim terrorists are the definition of fundamentalism.
