Comments on: General Casey: diversity shouldn’t be casualty of Fort Hood http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/11/08/general-casey-diversity-shouldnt-be-casualty-of-fort-hood/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: stevador39 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/11/08/general-casey-diversity-shouldnt-be-casualty-of-fort-hood/comment-page-2/#comment-404944 Mon, 30 Nov 2009 02:11:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=22049#comment-404944 General Casey should be court marshalled. He has placed political correctness before the lives and well being of our soldiers. That mentally ill dirt bag, Hasan was treating soldiers with serious mental and physical problems. Just what kind of care did they get. Two time Medal of Honor winner General Smedly Butler wrote ‘WAR IS A RACKET.’ Casey is a racketeer.

What Hasan did was evil, and there is no justification for it. But that doesn’t mean we ought to take it out on Muslims. Don’t let a few bad apples spoil the bunch. For every Hasan like nut there are many more Muslims who love America and being American. All you people talking about Hasan should familiarize yourselves with another name, one that most of you probably have never heard before and would just assume forget because it doesn’t fit with your world view.Cpl. Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan. He was an American soldier, a patriot and a Muslim, he died for his country as bravely as any of the others who gave their lives. He was 14 when 9/11 happened and he signed up to serve to prove Muslims loved America too. He gave his life for that. Thousands like him risk their lives on the same principle.His death meant just as much to his mother as any of the 13 heroes we lost at Fort Hood. Should his sacrafice be forgetten/ignored because a treasonous nut like Hasan decides to go out in a blaze of hatred?Were there warning signs overlooked, yes! Was Hasan a victim of discrimination after 9/11, maybe so, but no amount of discrimination justifies killing dozens of people who have done you no wrong. Hasan’s goal like that of other terrorists claiming the mantle of Islam to justify their actions was not merely to kill Americans, but to sow the seeds of hatred upon which they feed.The fact that Hasan was a terrorist whacko doesn’t make it right for us to go out and declare all Muslims a threat. Which is what the anti diversity nativists here seem to be advocating.We should learn from the Hasan case, but we should also remember those like Cpl. Khan who made the ultimate sacrafice for America. His death and what died fighting for should count for more than the whims of a murdering lunatic zealot like Hasan.May Cpl. Khan, the heroes of Fort Hood and all our heroes who died to defend us rest in peace. And may Maj Hasan and every nut like him roast slowly on spit in hell forever.

This General is a general ass+++ and should be forced to retire as he has retired his common sense already. Since we are all different individuals that is diversity enough. The word is an empty vessel into which each person pours his own meaning. A meaningless concept used by people to cover a lack of intellect.

People need to look past the PR of Big Pharma and the Psycho-pharmaceutical industry and realize the true cause. They’re making billions being “legal” drug-dealers and these mass-murders and suicides are just collateral damage to them.Hasan was a psychiatrist, with easy access to all these poisons with their black-box label warnings of suicide, depression and ideas of murder and killing. This is a no-brainer if someone would only look. But it’s easier for the bigots and racists to assign cause elsewhere, which solves nothing.

Jihadists are now self-declared enemies of the United States, and so must be quarantined, orotherwise, prevented from practicing the violent form of Islam. Any Imams who teach must be filmed/recorded in lieu of being deported to Yemen or Saudi Arabia.This is serious; this is war; our people are in danger of more attacks like this one while paper generals “dither” about what made this demon-possessed person commit sucha heinous act. Christians know; martyrs have suffered under Islam for centuries and now imitate Christ’s passion with their own in Kosovo, from Jihadist Iranian and PLO pretending to be “kosovars” (whatever that is)! God help us and give us strength!

And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse,”.General Casey, would you say the same thing if the coffins that Hasan filled contained (God forbid) your family members?Could you be that coldly – no insanely – insensitive to the sheer terror and blood curdling horror Hasan put members of your own family and all the other victims and their families through? Not to mention the very real damage to the nation you are sworn to protect against all enemies?Were you not a gelded, hypocritical, PC coward, you would be standing up first and primarily for those who Hasan slaughtered instead of some political construct meant to make you and those like you feel good about yourselves.General Casey, this is one former Air Force officer who demands that you resign immediately. You are a disgrace to the United States Army and to our nation as a whole.
