Anne for you or anyone to believe Major Hasan was acting and only pretended to "love" the USA is just plain ludicrous..What are you suggesting that he "acted' for a full 20 years or so in dutifully serving in the US military and then FINALLY decided the time was right to reveal his "true" identity... Please !!
He BELIEVED in the country and joined the military even against the wishes of his family.
It is more reasonable to assume the man snapped after years of repeated harassment because of his ETHNICITY, and more importantly, completely frustrated in the system for NOT prosecuting as war criminals those US soldiers who HAD actually committed crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq..Now known to be true !
Now he must have pondered in where the justice is in NOT prosecuting them good christian boys (soldiers) in the land of the great democracy?

Now there is no excuse for anyone to kill even in stress BUT it does happen in your country from time to time does it not ?? It's called murder and no doubt we'll see a lot more of those in and outside of the military in your gun toting country ;)

Submitting....
