We shall see this discussion played out in public, and it is good

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad or "Inordinate Stress" at Ft. Hood?

Submitted by We Shall See (United States), Dec 9, 2009 at 08:09

It is fortunate that we will have this public trial. It is important to explore the mentality that led to this horrific event and expose the processes that caused it. The more we can bring light on the subject, the more we can understand it. The more we can understand it, the more we can identify it early. The more we can understand it, the more we can show those who are weak to the encouragement of violence that this is not the way. I look forward to an active debate in the public eye. The debate went on in his head first. I think he is a contradiction inside. This contradiction and the arguements he had with himself is what needs to be exposed. This is what needs to be resolved in favor of non-violence. He is the pitiful example of making the wrong choice.
