The Template Arises:Vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

leave a comment »

The latest main stream media fad is to blame the Fort Hood incident on Vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Not only would someone have to be weak in the mind for that to happen, one would have to be even weaker to believe it.

Hasan was by all rights a muslim fundamentalist whose beliefs contradicted what he was doing in the Army, and it came to a head when he was ordered to go to Afghanistan. His religious beliefs and identity trumped his sworn duty to this country. The honorable thing to do would be to resign.

Instead, Hasan chose to take his anger out on those around him, particularly those that were innocent, and who had nothing to do with decisions about our foreign policy. He is a coward, a liar, and a murderer. He was dishonest to himself and those around him. He is responsible for all of this, BUT Islam was the gasoline poured on this fire. In his mind, Americans were the enemy, not the Taliban.

It is high time muslims in this country and elsewhere to make the decision on where they stand, and furthermore, help us weed out these fundamental psychopaths. In WWII, Japanese, German, and Italian americans felt they had something to prove in fighting the axis powers, and they served their country well (read about the 442nd Infantry Regiment).  Such incidents like this did not exist, but then again, even the average american today does not have the patriotism and sense of national identity that my parents generation did.

If anyone is offended by the pictorial here, Tango Sierra. What I have seen of Islam in this world, the quran belongs there.

Thank you for reading this blog.
