Default Attack at Ft. Hood

So far, three shooters counted, one still on the loose. Terrorist attack?

That's one of the reasons I suspect this is a terrorist attack. Plus, there are reported to be three shooters, which tosses out the one, lone maniac theory.

More than one is an official conspiracy, correct?

Because the only people who are armed on a military base are the MPs.

The FBI said they don't believe terrorism was involved.

That's from the Fox report.

With PTSD being a true and very real problem for many soldiers and this being a place where soldiers make repeated trips to both Iraq and Afghanistan the word Maniac is probably the most inappropriate word that could be used.

Press conference right now, said the shooters/planners were all soldiers. Terrible.

Damn. I sure hope this doesn't boil down to our own guys losing it. If it has anything to do with multiple deployments, this will launch a political firestorm.

I figure any time somebody whips out a gun and starts indiscriminately shooting people, it's a maniac.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder/Disease is a very real very frightening thing. It can make a soldier think that they are in danger all the time, have feelings like they are back in the tramatic situation again.

Maniac is not the proper word. Your last post was more on point. Soldiers who have been deployed into high optempo situations where they are in shootouts on daily basis for a year come back for 6-9 months and then start doing realistic training for their next deployment. These things will strike up bad memories, make people think they aren't where they are. I'm not making excuses for what was done, but we are reducing the size of our military and increasing the amount of deployments for those fewer soldiers, all the while having trouble retaining and caring for those who are still with us. The very real part of being in the military today.

PTSD is a very scary thing...I might have a very mild case of it, but it still shakes me up every now and then and makes me forget who I am and who I am dealing with.
