    At least seven people have been killed and 12 others injured in a shooting at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, according to US media reports.
    One person has been arrested and a second is on the run, ABC news reports. It said the base had been locked down. ...

    I was stationed there.
    2nd armored division and then III corps.
    Was the shooting on base or was it in Killeen?
    Any more news?
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    It was at the base, there aren't many more details yet
    ...There are reports one gunman is in custody and another is still on the loose.

    MSNBC says the two suspects were in military uniform.

    Another media report says there was a third shooter involved.

    The attack happened at the Soldier Readiness Centre at Fort Hood, according to the FOX 4 television station....

    The news isn't saying who was responsible. Terrorists? What?

    Can't think of any other reason for a one way attack like that. I only wish we had the brains to try, find guilt or innocence, and in this case execute the guilty immediately. We shouldn't allow these assholes the luxury of anything more than being martyrs within days of conviction :mad:
