The Fort Hood shooting appears to be over, with the shooter reportedly dead of a self-inflicted wound and according to the latest CNN update, three other people dead, and as many as 14 others injured, some in critical condition. Reports of a second shooter are so far unconfirmed. CNN also reports that the name of the shooter is 34 year old Ivan Lopez. The shooting is also said to not be terrorism-related, but instead a "solider on solider" attack.

The official statement by Fort Hood:

Shooting incident at Fort Hood

The injured personnel are being transported to Carl R. Darnall Medical Center and other local hospitals. Numerous law enforcement agencies are in support and on the scene. The number of injured are not confirmed at this time. No further details are known at this time.

FORT HOOD, Texas -- There has been a shooting at Fort Hood and injuries are reported. Emergency crews are on the scene. No further details are known at this time.

 

As further details are available, they will be released through FortHoodPressCenter.com.

Obama was at a fundraiser when the shooting happened. He promptly provided several soundbites:

  • PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HE SPOKE WITH JOINT CHIEFS ABOUT FORT HOOD
  • OBAMA `HEARTBROKEN THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENED AGAIN
  • OBAMA SAYS SHOOTING `REOPENS THE PAIN' OF INCIDENT 5 YEARS AGO
  • OBAMA VOWS FULL INVESTIGATION INTO FORT HOOD SHOOTING

Full statement courtesy of BNO News:

I just got off the phone with the vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to get the latest on the shooting at fort hood. Obviously, we’re all following it closely. The situation is fluid right now, but my national security team in close contact not just with Defense Department but with the FBI. They are working with folks on ground to determine exactly what happened and ensure that everyone is secure. Want to assure all of us we going to get to bottom of what happened. Any shooting is troubling. Obviously this reopened pain of what happened at Fort Hoo 5 years ago. We know these familes, we know the service to their country and the sacrifices that they make. Obviously our thoughts and prayers are with the entire community and we are going to do everything we can to make the community of fort hood has what it needs to deal with a tough situation but also any potential aftermath. We’re heartbroken that something like this might have happened again. I don’t what on the comment on facts until we know exactly what happened. But just for now I would hope that everyone across the country keep the families of Fort Hood in our thoughts and our prayers. The folks there have sacrificed so much on behalf of our freedom. Many of the people there have been on multiple tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, they served with valor, they served with distinction. At their home base they need to feel safe. We don’t yet know what happened tonight but obviously that sense of safety has been broken once again. We need to find out exactly what happened.

And last but not least, Obama promises that he will shortly get to the bottom of this.

Ivan Lopez.........Definitely Muslim and Russian and North Korean. An all in one super villain. /sarc

Tell the truth I can't make any sense of "Ivan Lopez".

Ah shit of course. Connects back to Putin rather nicely, too. All wrapped up with a bow.

Did the prez ever figure out what happened last time - other than it *not* being an act of terror?

I think I'm 'White Hispanic' because I've had Mexican food before.  I don't think Obie will 'get to the bottom of this' because he hasn't seen the bottom of a greens cup for years.  Holder will call this more 'workplace violence' until he gets a staple cut at the office, then he'll label it 'terrorism' and ban all staplers with more than 10 'rounds'.  The only thing I'm sure of is nothing is beyond absurd for these POS.

I pray that those saying this is a conspiracy in attempt of a false flag are wrong, this s*** makes me sick. These bastards ensuring our military are disarmed is criminal. Least worse case is that this is a second domestic terrorist attack on our troops (mostly young disadvantaged teenagers, I know, I served as an us military officer for 6 yrs), worst worse case is that a conspiracy is true and this is an attempt at a false flag...in that case, God help us.

Actually White Hispanic is very common in South America. The ruling classes tend to be hispanic but of white European or white Spanish heritage. Argentina is a prime example and of course Mexico has a ruling class that is quite white in racial make up but hispanic in language and culture.

But that name surely is a bit odd. Not many Russian ethnics in the hispanic mix. Spanish and Indian mix seems to be the genral ethnic make up of what we consider hispanic. As for the shooting, work place violence. I had a few bosses in my work life that it took great restraint not to come to work and gun down. In todays pressure cooker work world, that type of pressure is universal. I often wonder at how few work place shootings there are, considering the type of people who are made into bosses now a days.

You Americans are crazy with your "classifications".When living in the U.S. I was continually amazed at all the forms I had to fill out stating my "race". There is no fucking race called hispanic! Hispanic is ...maybe...a name for a cultural group with same language and traditions. Although these variations of language and traditions vary enormously across the...errhmm Hispanic world. And yes - I speak Spanish. I always filled out those forms as "caucasian" , since that is what you call blonde and blue-eyed though I am certainly not Georgian nor Chechen or a part of that  soup that inhabits the region. I  don´t think you really know what you mean by hispanic. By language...by race...by culture... or all three of them. With this so ever very racially sensitive regime in Washington it surprises me that you are even allowed to use the general misnomer of "hispanic". Not that the hispanics  themselves care one way or the other. But you know - you could always make a case out of it , alluding to Spics and such

Yes, Americans take their races so seriously, and yet their ridiculous "racial" classifications are based on total ignorance of (and indifference to) everything outside the States. And since everyone there came from outside, at some time or other (including the misleadingly named "Native" Americans), their classification system is just a complete farce.

 

Clue for Americans: "Hispanic" means "Spanish", it's therefore a variety of Caucasian. Only in the US does it mean anything different.

No matter what, this has NOTHING to do with the US bombing other countries and screwing with their sovereignty.  That's just crazy Ron Paul talk.

You can tell he's Army. If it was a Marine it would be 17 dead plus the shooter. Crappy shots that they are....just like cops.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Do any of you people know who Charles Whitman was? None of you dumbasses knows? Private Cowboy?

Private Cowboy: Sir, he was that guy who shot all those people from that tower in Austin, Texas, sir!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: That's affirmative. Charles Whitman killed twelve people from a twenty-eight-story observation tower at the University of Texas from distances up to four hundred yards. Anybody know who Lee Harvey Oswald was? Private Snowball?

Private Snowball: Sir, he shot Kennedy, sir!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: That's right, and do you know how far away he was?

Private Snowball: Sir, it was pretty far! From that book suppository building, sir!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: All right, knock it off! Two hundred and fifty feet! He was two hundred and fifty feet away and shooting at a moving target. Oswald got off three rounds with an old Italian bolt action rifle in only six seconds and scored two hits, including a head shot! Do any of you people know where these individuals learned to shoot? Private Joker?

Private Joker: Sir, in the Marines, sir!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: In the Marines! Outstanding! Those individuals showed what one motivated marine and his rifle can do! And before you ladies leave my island, you will be able to do the same thing!

Hell I like you TIS; you can come over to my house and fuck my sister!

I don't know why you got down voted, RafterMan (RM's user name is from FMJ FFS).

RafterMan, I wanna slip my tube steak into your sister. What will you take in trade?

NoDebt's picture

Trade?  It was an open offer.  He said nothing about trade.  Go nail his sister, already.  If she's north of 2 bills, I don't wanna hear about it and neither does anyone else.  What you do with his sister is your business.

TruthInSunshine's picture

Two different sisters of two different people being offered up - one was the Senior Drill Instructor's, gratis , and the other was Private Cowboy's in an attempted negotiation by Private Joker.

RafterManFMJ's picture

What do ya got?

I attract some dedicated down votes as I've had some posts that are non-PC to down right ass****ish.

Be sure to pick up a copy of 'The Short Timers' the novel FMJ was based on; burn through it in a day - a real page turner and worth the effort of chasing a copy down. Check Amazon, Ebay, and Alibris.com

Sounds like the Port Arthur massacre in Australia attributed to an untrained low IQ 'patsy' still in jail:

"The records show that a total of 32 people were shot in the Broad Arrow Cafe, so at best we would expect 4 dead and 28 injured, or at worst 6 dead and 26 injured. These are very reliable military figures based on hard science, but the actual figures in the Broad Arrow Cafe were 20 dead and 12 injured - an incredible inverted ratio of 1.66 to 1, or nearly two dead for every one injured.

Special forces train continuously for months on end to achieve a ratio as high as this, which lies far beyond the abilities of regular soldiers, and is an absolute scientific impossibility for an intellectually impaired registered invalid." Joe Vialls

Would not surprise me at all. You have all these dependants living in housing on many military bases while their husbands are away or on duty, and the wife gets lonely. It happens all the time.

RafterManFMJ's picture

LOL the wife gets 'lonely' for strange cock. You kill me, sir! Lemme give your dumb ass some terms you can google:

Hypergamy
Return of kings
Vox day
Chateau Heartiste
The game by Strauss
The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature
Matt Ridley

Buy the last 2 in hard copy so you can underline and refer and shit. LOL they were 'lonely' Christ you retards slay me.

Peachfuzz's picture

Straight links bro, I've added them to the list. I started off by taking a huge dose of the Red Pill. Most of it I already knew, but these mofo's in the manosphere really no how to spit some truth.
Looks like you have a couple betas hatin' on you. +1 for balance, and the fact that all men should read this kinda shit.

RafterManFMJ's picture

Haters gotta hate.

The stories I could tell, one gent I work with married and was divorced 3 times by the same woman...

Another term 'specially for the haters - White Knight.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

And what does that say about a man who would marry the same dipshit that many times? Cocks had better wise up for their own sakes. Mine wouldn't be such a fool. If a man wouldn't be manipulated there would be no problems.

Miffed;-)

RafterManFMJ's picture

Well she promised it would be 'different this time' and he believed her...

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Why is there not an admonition for 3 times? Certainly shouldn't be a ponderous dilemma.

A dear friend of mine a few years got out of a terrible marriage with a ginormous leech. He is paying her $7k/month so she doesn't have to work. This is a stretch for him but doable. I said " have we learned a lesson? Do not bond with undeserving females". Oh dear yes I have learned. Next month he will be marrying another and raise her kids too. I have decided not to go to this wedding or I may puke on her white dress( cough cough). He is pissed at me.

I have dragged out too many drowning men in rivers to have them jump back in. I am sick of it. Until you all wake up, count me out.

Miffed;-)

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Men should read this. However these are just words. When are men going to do instead of just read? I have waited a long time and, so far, no action appears to be coming.

Miffed;-)

Peachfuzz's picture

I have no idea, I've been wondering that myself. All I know is that I do a lot more than I read, and I'm the only man I have any measure of influence over.
   When the pain of change becomes less than the pain of staying the same, we will change. I'm just left to wonder if that will be before the distant memories of the ways of a man are completely lost. It would be a shame for us to end up like this.

Greenskeeper_Carl's picture

The 'lonely' part was sarcasm. My point is that in a lot of those neighborhoods, everyone is fucking everyone(not literally, but a lot of that goes on). I've seen it. Which would make the above posters hypothesis quite possible, as someone is likely to get pretty pissed if someone was tagging his wife while he was deployed. Tell me exactly why that isn't a possibility. Name calling is an ineffective and childish tactic for getting your point across. You Internet wanna be tough guys slay me, too.

UselessEater's picture

Bed hopping happens everywhere - in a country town I worked in years ago the kids of more than one family looked distinctly like someone elses. Its been going on a long time everywhere - and the injured party doesn't go on a shooting spree.

Get rid of the med's, the EMF, etc and the twisted need to use people in dumb ass wars; stop sending industry to China. Then people have their mental health and real job choices.

Obviously the people being shot did not feel terror, like they would have it were a muslim gunman, ergo not terrorism.
