13 people (soldiers) killed, 30 wounded at the army base Ft. Hood, Texas. Come on, are we really supposed to be surprised?
The man was a psychiatrist, treating US soldiers who suffered from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) upon their return from Iraq and Afghanistan. We cannot imagine the horror stories he was listening to and dealing with day after day. Really, we are sitting our living rooms watching CNN and think we know what war is about. WELL, WE DON'T! It is million times worse than anything we can imagine.
Plus, he is Muslim, his parents are from Palestine – the most unfairly treated country in the world since World War II. And he was to be deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan (against his will) to kill other Muslims. Of course he was full of hatred, aggression and frustrations. He is just a human being. As everyone involved in this should be.
Those unnecessary wars must stop.
