Soldier Dead in Arkansas

Another crazy person with insane beliefs appears to have killed a a soldier in Arkansas:

A Muslim convert who said he was opposed to the U.S. military shot two soldiers outside an Arkansas recruiting station, killing one, police said Monday.

“This individual appears to have been upset with the military, the Army in particular, and that’s why he did what he did,” Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said in a phone interview.

“He has converted to (Islam) here in the past few years,” Hastings said. “We’re not completely clear on what he was upset about. He had never been in the military.

“He saw them standing there and drove up and shot them. That’s what he said.”

Hastings identified the man in custody as Carlos Bledsoe, 24, of Little Rock, who goes by the name of Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad.

I’ll be interested to hear how more guns could have prevented this. It also sounds like he has prior history with the military. No telling if tried to get in and was rejected, or a wash out from basic, or something like that.

*** Update ***

According to the Times, the prior history is just rage:

In a lengthy interview with the police, Mr. Muhammad said he was angry about the killing of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chief Thomas said. Previously known as Carlos Bledsoe, Mr. Muhammad told investigators that he had converted to Islam as a teenager, Chief Thomas said.

Chief Thomas said investigators believe that Mr. Muhammad acted alone. He seemed to be familiar with the Army recruiting office because it was not far from his home, the chief said, but might have been on the prowl for anyone in uniform.

“I would say he was looking for any and all targets of opportunity that happened to be military,” the chief said in a telephone interview. “That may have well been the first place he found.”

Just pure rage, again.

    Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad is a bajillion times cooler than Carlos Bledsoe.

    But seriously, WHEN WILL THE CRAZY STOP? God damn guns. No one seriously needs those f’n things. And dude, if you’re upset with the military, killing some random person isn’t going to do a damn thing.

    I don’t support profiling, and ‘goes by’ might mean it wasn’t ‘legally changed to’, but wtf? How does someone roll around freakin’ Arkansas with Mujahid in their brand new Islamic name and not get singled out for closer scrutiny?

    Great.

    After Tom Erickson and now this guy, now both sides have their own personal “Look at how crazy and dangerous they really are! See? We were right the whole time!” scapegoat.

    Of course, the mainstream left will be unanimous in saying that this guy is a horrible monster who needs to be locked away forever, while the mainstream right has been gleefully celebrating that they got a doctor killed with their hateful rhetoric – but that’s the kind of detail you can count on the media to leave out over the next several days.

    Behold the power of False Equivalence.

    You know, last time I checked, religious fundamentalism really isn’t a tenet of the left. It’s kind of fascinating how conservatives can’t seem to (or refuse to) grasp that Islamic fundamentalism is a right wing phenomena just as much as Christian fundamentalism.

    The suspected assailant was charged with first degree murder and 15 terrorist acts. The suspected murderer of Dr. Tiller hasn’t been charged with anything yet, although charges will have to be made by tomorrow. I wonder how many terrorist acts he will be charged with. (I won’t wonder about the amount of fauxrage that is going to explode if he is charged with terrorist acts.)

    @Gold Star for Robot Boy: So did James Joyner. He’s a respectable Republican, so of course he doesn’t really say anything himself, he just links people that blame “teh left” and then, after giving a full airing of their speculations, states it would be wrong to speculate.

    I love the equivalency he is trying to rock there, because it was a huge mystery what was behind Tiller’s death after three decades of harassment. If Joyner is going wingnut, the GOP is just dead.

    In the past several months Arkansas has had a couple of shootings that have been strange. The head of the Democratic party in Arkansas was fatally shot in his office right before the election in November, several weeks ago, a Doctor’s car was bombed at a local area hospital and they arrested another Dr. of Indian descent that had some bomb making ammo and other weapons on his property- not sure if it is all related or not– Now this crazy shit. I’m aware of all of this because I live over the bridge from Arkansas in Tennessee. Why do all of the domestic terrorist decide to grow a pair of balls when we have a Democratic President?

    I was relying on the version I read at the New York Times an hour or so ago:

    A 23-year-old man upset about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan opened fire from his truck at two soldiers standing outside a military recruiting station here on Monday morning, killing one private and wounding another, the police said.

    In a lengthy interview with the police, Mr. Muhammad said he was angry about the killing of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chief Thomas said. Previously known as Carlos Bledsoe, Mr. Muhammad told investigators that he had converted to Islam as a teenager, Chief Thomas said.

    @John Cole: I don’t get the connection myself. But logic doesn’t matter – the right will blame us anyway.

    I’m really hoping I’m wrong – but I think that the most casual observers will equate the reactions to the two stories as “crazies on both sides yelling about how dangerous the other is”. The fact that the crime the right blames on us has nothing at all to do with us will be lost.

    The sad part is this story has been out since earlier today and I am talking about almost from the moment it went up on memeorandum before they had a suspect in the shooting Michelle Malkin had a post up saying it was all the left’s fault. The muthfuckas never just accept any responsibility. Its always the Pee Wee Herman defense.

    “I know you are but what am I”

    Talk about a chronic lack of self awareness. Nothing about this guy shooting those recruiters has a damn thing to do with liberal or progressive politics. But hey he is a handy excuse for blatant false equivalence so you know the wingnuts are going to take it.

    Am I to assume that it does not occur to or bother anyone else what a highly useful incident this is for the mainstream media and the right wing propagandists that run most of the traditional media?

    They now have the story at hand that will allow them to totally bury the murder of Dr. Tiller by the right wing crazies of America, who participated in a long term conspiracy, working hand in hand to encourage and reap the rewards of such an act of domestic terrorism and murder.

    And I am sure the MSM will run wild with this story. After all, it has all the proper, obvious elements of conspiracy that our masters wish to shove down our throats daily as part of their agenda, scary Muslim extremists hate America and murder our poor soldiers. The Fearmongers will be out 24×7, I imagine.

    How convenient and timely that this story arises to push the Dr. Tiller narrative right out of the peeps’ collective minds, along with our government’s caving a couple months ago to the complaints about the release of the report on rightwing extremism in America, which fully predicted what we saw happen in the case of Dr. Tiller.

    The shooter didn’t come after innocent people, he didn’t attack a peace rally or a peaceful doctor who provided necessary services, he shot soldiers whose job it is to carry out a war against Muslims. That he was a convert is irrelevant, and that Obama inherited this war on Islam and is trying to somehow make it better is also irrelevant. Islam is a political and religious system, and our political bullying and religious hatred over the last 50 years hasn’t worked. Maybe we ought to consider doing something different – y’know, unless doing more of what doesn’t work is the solution.

    The Quran splits the earth into two worlds; Dar al-Islam (land of submission) and Dar al-Harb (land of war). I think we should follow Mohammed’s guidance and divide the world in two.

    We should get the hell out of the Middle East and let those folks live however they want. If the Mohammedans want to make a run at Europe and Russia, more power to them. We do not need Middle Eastern oil as we have oil shale.

    We should also stand up and defend the values of free speech and expression that were present at the Founding of this country, and reject the Islamic belief system in the Americas. It is incompatible with the 1st Amendment, in my opinion, as the religion is in and of itself an intolerant political system.

    @someguy:

    My problem was that you were saying the soldiers’ job was to carry out a war against Muslims. If it really were that carrying out a war against Muslims were the primary objective of the military in general, or even the invasion of Iraq in particular, then it would be reasonable to conclude that soldiers who join after 2003 were motivated by a desire to kill Muslims. Maybe a few did, but not most. But Iraq was a war for oil and empire and Manifest Destiny, pure and simple. If it so happened that ‘teh terrists’ were sufficiently melaninized and nonChristian to garner popular support here in the US, then anti-Muslim animus was merely a useful propaganda tool for those responsible for the invasion. But we’re not in Iraq to war against Muslims. I hope that sufficiently muddies things up for you. :)

    Although I am critical of Islam, even it cannot suppress the human spirit. Men and women have been drawn together since the beginning of time and societies have formed legal bonds between the two sexes, to encourage the proper nurturing of children. Often times, however, after a while, the man feels a need to move on. ‘Nikah’ is this legal bond in the Islamic system.

    This bond between men and women is often times expensive to dissolve in the Western world. In the Islamic world it is easier as all the man has to say is ‘I divorce you’ three times and then she is gone. Even that is sometimes difficult however.

    Here is an excellent example of that human spirit unleashed, in this case from Qatar. Innate human creativity, even when unsuccessful, should give us all hope, the world over.

    Being the member of a particular religion does not give you the right to fire at will (see for example all of the Muslims who don’t shoot at people). You’ll note his attempt to defend or protect Muslims overseas involved all of the comforts of home and a very easy target. Kind of like the attempt to defend the helpless unborn involved barging into a church and shooting a guy. Fuck all the crazy God Told Me to Do it assholes sideways with a rusty crowbar.

    Malkin has a clear and easy point. It is extremely easy to compare two similar events and compare Obama’s responses.

    It took Obama about 6 hours to come out with his “heinous acts of violence” statement on Tiller’s murder. It’s now been almost 24 hours since a US serviceman was killed on a US street (and another wounded) by a Muslim… and not a word from Obama? Not even a canned statement from the WH denouncing “heinous acts of violence” against our soldiers?

    Obama couldn’t be more tone-deaf on this one if he tried — immediate condemnation of a white Christian who killed an abortionist… not a word against a black Muslim who killed a soldier.

    So what the fuck is he waiting for, and why didn’t he wait for it with Tiller?

  96. 96

    The shooter didn’t come after innocent people, he didn’t attack a peace rally or a peaceful doctor who provided necessary services, he shot soldiers whose job it is to carry out a war against Muslims.

    Thats… an interesting problem. I’m considerably more anti-American than most here, but I don’t think I’d support that. Soldiers can and do serve an honourable role, that of defending their country.

    The practice, alas, is that American soldiers tend to be used in an offensive role more often than those of, well, any other country. Iraq isn’t an aberration; it’s business as usual.

    This guy is *probably* a nut – but I can’t help thinking. If you were stuck in Nazi Germany, would you be justified in taking up arms against your own country? The US isn’t anywhere like that, but it *is* committing war crimes and occupying a country it invaded based on lies. If I was an American, I would be protesting, but I wouldn’t be considering rebellion – but we’re not talking about *my* conscience.

    I don’t condone the shooter’s actions, but I can’t pretend that his (apparant) motivations are completely illegitimate. When you look behind the facade, the US spends an awful lot of time using force on others to get what it wants – and soldiers can’t claim to be innocent bystanders to this.

    It’s like Ted Kaczynski – you should be able to admit that he made some good points in his manifesto, without being sen as cheering on the bombing.

    Well, I just got the “you on the left incited this guy since you have the same end goal” comment on my blog (I didn’t actually approve it) and “when are you going to write on the soldier who got shot by the Islamic scumbag” and I got called “moonbat”.

    I still don’t understand how the left is responsible for these guys. I have never said our soldiers are murderers and should be shot. In fact, I haven’t called ANYONE a baby-killer or a murderer. Except, you know, for actual baby-killers and murderers.

    Yes, I am sure the guy who shot the soldier watches Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. Uh huh. He probably reads this blog.

    By the way, about Dr. Tiller. What happened to him is a product of violence breeding more violence. The murderer that killed him out to be prosecuited just like Tiller would have been in a decent society. What an ugly cold hearted fish he was.

    Islam is at war with us because they hate freedom, just like the American lib.

    Well, no…not exactly. As to the first part, there are a lot of reasons that SOME Islamic people hold us in contempt and hatred. Much of it is fueled by misinformation and propaganda, but by no means all of it. Sadly, there are kernels of truth amongst all the anti-American BS. Gitmo, innocents killed during ‘drone raids’, etc., do not generally serve to endear us to these peoples. We shouldn’t expect that they would have no effect on how we are seen. Our past history of knee-jerk support for Israel’s subjugation of the Palestinians likewise does not place us in a positive light within much of the Middle-East, Islamic or otherwise. Rightly or wrongly they view Israel as an occupying oppressor of the Palestinians. That said, it doesn’t excuse the cold-blooded murder of young soldiers or anyone else for that matter. I expect for justice to be served in this senselessly obscene murder just as I expect it to be served in Dr. Tiller’s murder. I would like to remind you, however, that I have not seen any evidence of “American libs” prominently advocating attacking American soldiers, while on the other hand one doesn’t have to search very far to find folks on “the right” who have willingly and eagerly drummed up hatred and incited violence against those in the medical professional who still offer abortion services – which is still a somewhat legally protected service in parts of the United States at this particular moment.

    As to the second part, no, American “libs” generally do not hate freedom. I don’t see any need to explain to you why this is an uninformed and idiotic remark. You don’t seem to be very far past the “See Dick and Jane” level of thinking and I don’t have any inclination to break it down to that level for you.

    The reason Michelle Malkin gets under your skin is because she regularly exposes the absurdity and the hypocrisies of the left. When you don’t have an answer to her, then you get mad and call her names. As for why do liberals hate freedom? (the actual question, that is) Probably because it interferes with their ability to dictate the lifestyle of the common man, and to dictate the policies of the government rather than to subject it to representative democracy. Why else would the left be on a rampage to turn our universities over to the liberal thought police, with across the board discrimination against anyone not part of the leftist or secular orthodoxy. Ultimately, liberal philosophy can’t stand the light of day. For them, I suppose it’s easier to keep drinking the kool-aid.

    P.S. I gotta laugh at the idea of lefty strawman attacks. Yeah, like the fact that there weren’t WMDs in Iraq. Or the fact that we tortured people and then lied about it. Or the fact that the right wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and ban gay marriages. Sure sounds like strawmen attacks to me!

    Yeah, asiangrrlMN – thanks for confirming my point. You called her names, and didn’t even attempt to refute her (you probably can’t). She makes mistakes just like others do, just not that many, and she’s pretty good at exposing the left.

    The agenda of attacking christians isn’t a secret. Much of the left is pretty open about it.

    You pointed out three strawmen. First, there were WMD’s in Iraq, maybe not as many, but over 500 deliverable munitions were found, not to mention mothballed nuclear, chemical and biological programs. But the left keeps repeating that canard as if it were true. Google it, even the NY Times has reported this (granted, they tried to hide it on page 37 or so, but what do you expect). The WMD’s was not even in the top three reasons to go to war, so of course, the left attacks it – yet another straw man.

    Tortured people? Yes, I suppose some occured, but for the most part, when the evidence was sufficient the perpetrators were tried. There have been over 800 investigations, and 250+ convictions (few were actually torture), and all done by the rule of law as practiced by the United States. Besides, much of what is illegal now was only made so in recent law. Waterboarding for example, wasn’t illegal in 2002 – but hey, why let the facts get in the way to yet another lefty straw man. Something like 9 straight courts threw out such attempted lawsuits (back then).

    It’s a “straw man” to overturn Roe vs Wade or ban gay marriages? How so, even if you hold a different viewpoint, how is that a “straw” man? Let’s see – Roe vs Wade is based on …. nothing at all. There isn’t a single word in the Constitution that supports the right to abortion (or, for those on the right, that would oppose abortion either). The kind of twisting that it takes the left to make that a “constitutional” right – would make any pretzel proud. Doesn’t matter anyways – abortion (the killing of babies, by now scientifically proven) is the slavery issue of the 21st century. It’s even following the same pattern of early the 19th century. It won’t last this century, and we’ll be scratching our head by then on how did anyone ever support it.

    Gay marriages… hmmm. So not letting the left redefine 6000+ years of history, law, and family to create something that the American people don’t support – that’s a “straw man” too?

    Now that I’ve demolished your (lack of) thinking, try to be coherent and don’t embarrass yourself. Peace out.

Breaking Al-Qaeda (yes, they were there, the intel is clear on this), dramatically rolling up the jihadist movement across the theater (another success), and changing the geopolitical tilt of the war in our favor – were far more important reasons.

    Torture is not merely controlled by the Geneva Conventions.

    There is and have been over the years succeeding United Nations Conventions Against Torture.

    They cover a much broader territory than the Geneva Conventions, which is why torture fans only speak of the Geneva Conventions.

    The 1984 UN Convention Against Torture (signed in 1988 though) were the ones signed by Ronald Reagan with this statement:

    The United States participated actively and effectively in the negotiation of the Convention. It marks a significant step in the development during this century of international measures against torture and other inhuman treatment or punishment. Ratification of the Convention by the United States will clearly express United States opposition to torture, an abhorrent practice unfortunately still prevalent in the world today.

    This international convention, as much in applicability as the Geneva Conventions, begins with this:

    For the purposes of this Convention, torture means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession, punishing him for an act he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or coercing him or a third person, or for any reason based on discrimination of any kind, when such pain or suffering is inflicted by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity. It does not include pain or suffering arising only from, inherent in or incidental to lawful sanctions.

    Phoenician – well put. Case made. When facts interfere with your predisposed worldview, just call me names.

    I had 30 seconds to reply. And you are stupid.

    But to refute you:

    i, There were no significant WMD in Iraq. The US’s own Iraq Survey Group had to blather about “intent” and slide over the fact that they found essentially fuck all. You’re thinking of this piece of crap from Fox News, which tries to paint rusting old artillery shells as the “clear and present danger” justifying invasion.

    There were no mothballed nuclear, chemical and biological programs. There was blather about intent – some time in the utopian future when Iraq was not being watched, and was rich and strong again, Saddam might try for WMD again. There were no mothballed nuclear, chemical and biological programs.

    ii, WMD were *the* reason to go to war. A simple google search shows that you are engaging in revisionism – in fact, lying. See here.

    iii, The US has tortured people to death – https://www.investorvillage.com/groups.asp?mb=16129&mn=6336&pt=msg&mid=7259850. Deal with it.

    … [Four] years since the first known death in U.S. custody, only 12 detainee deaths have resulted in punishment of any kind for any U.S. official,” found Human Rights Now in a 2006 report on terror war prisoners. “Of the 34 homicide cases so far identified by the military, investigators recommended criminal charges in fewer than two thirds, and charges were actually brought (based on decisions made by command) in less than half. While the CIA has been implicated in several deaths, not one CIA agent has faced a criminal charge. Crucially, among the worst cases in this list – those of detainees tortured to death – only half have resulted in punishment; the steepest sentence for anyone involved in a torture-related death: five months in jail.”

    iv, Waterboarding has long been considered illegal in the US. The US prosecuted Japanese for using it, and has prosecuted a sheriff who used it on suspects. And you are ignoring other forms of torture used by the US, and the deaths of prisoners at the hands of their “interrogators”.

    Gitmo, innocents killed during ‘drone raids’, etc., do not generally serve to endear us to these peoples.

    Enough about Gitmo, drones, whatever creating terrorists — that’s ridiculous on the face of it. Think of the logical pretzel. Islamic extremists, who praise each other for suicide bombing women and children in markets, taking hostages, and killing the hostages by slicing their heads off on the internet, are somehow morally inflamed by the “stress positions” and “barking dogs” treatment at Gitmo? Who knew they were so specifically sensitive to Gitmo, yet totally insensitive to beheadings, rapes, and suicide bombings? I wonder how outraged they would be if some Jews hijacked a few of their planes and killed 3000 Muslims.

    I’m not saying that Muslim extremists won’t SAY that Gitmo creates terrorists, but the fact is that, as we’ve seen with all MidEast conflicts, any pretext of grievance will do for those folks. If there weren’t a Gitmo, they’d just lie and say there was, and they’d say it was a place where evil Westerners murder Muslims while dancing to half-naked Brittany Spears CDs… and then they slake their thirst with Muslim baby’s blood. They’ll SAY whatever they can get an uncritical media to report, and whatever the mullahs can get their followers to swallow.

    If it weren’t Gitmo, it’d be something just as illogical. They’d just find another lie with which to dupe gullible, hate-filled kids.

    “These people” are not a fixed pool, Bender. Gitmo exists; it makes it easier for them to recruit people to their cause, and (importantly) it harms the American cause.

    You cannot claim to stand for justice, and torture people. You cannot claim to stand for freedom, and imprison people without rights. You cannot claim to be liberating people if you drag them out of their beds and throw them in dungeons.

    Are you really unable to see how others might perceive not only Gitmo, but your weasling justifications for it?

    Yes, I know your (and the previous poster’s) point. And my point is, if Gitmo didn’t exist, there would be exactly the same number of terrorists with exactly the same amount of Anti-American fervor that they currently have, for all the reasons I gave in my post. I don’t think that it hurts the American cause at all.

    Are you really unable to see how others might perceive not only Gitmo, but your weasling justifications for it?

    What I’m unable to see is how an intelligent person can pretend that Gitmo is a place where innocent people are dragged out of their beds to be put into dungeons without their rights. Come on, you sound like a cartoon.

    But put away your talking points. You aren’t even arguing against my point. My post didn’t say Gitmo was great, or that there was always proper treatment of prisoners there. I merely said that as a “recruiting tool,” it was irrelevant. The mullahs lie left and right to these ignorant children to get them to become pawns (72 virgins, anyone?). They’d lie about prisoner treatment even if we put them all up at the Ritz Carlton.

    And again, am I to believe that Muslims think that what happens at Gitmo is worse than the beheadings of which they obviously approve? If so, it proves my point as to the mere pretext of grievance they require.
