An example of unmanliness that will not be easily forgotten

On November 5th, in the late afternoon, a enlisted man committed a selfish act killing 13 & wounding 30. His selfish act was not just unmanly in its selfishness, it was unmanly in that it was treason.

Via the United States Constitution

Article III Section 3 delineates treason as follows:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

What we know so far is that our suspect was sympathetic to Muslim extremism, the details of the investigation are still not open to the public.

Article III Section 3 also states:
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

So far the facts coming in do not look good.

But more to the point! Weather his acts are considered treason after the investigation are irrelevant. A traitor under law and a traitor to the oath he swore to uphold, and the brothers in arms he swore to protect will be clear to all others.

Betrayal is the most unmanly of acts anyone can commit.

Get over what, Asa? Just ignore the mass murder? And you want me to support El Presidente? Here's an idea: I'll give him the same amount of support that leftists gave George W. Bush for eight years, how's that? But no, I absolutely refuse to "get over it" when people died on our military bases.

and they have one Bob we all need to support not only our commander in chief but all of our citizens. The funny part of this is it is in no way the first time a member of the military has fired on their own for no apparent reason. I have personally been through it on 2 separate occasions but no media attention. Due to stress levels in our military while not on common in no way unheard of either. Get over it already

We are also betrayed by the unmanly Muslim in the White House. Look at his priorities in his speech, such as they are. Here is an interesting article: Twelve soldiers were murdered in cold blood at Fort Hood. Thirty others were wounded. Our Commander in Chief calls a press conference and begins it with a long thanks to the Interior Department and Indians who just concluded a conference and then gives a good natured "shout out" to an attendee , all with a studied nonchalance, before he even mentions the outrage on our military base. http://xrl.in/3lq5

Our military deserve a true leader, someone that respects them and has their best interests at heart.
