    see here we go again with misinformation. mainstream media goes nuts and reports anything, no matter how bent and twisted.
    I am not blaming Guit_fishN, ...... that's why I didn't quote him. As I understand this incident, and I hesitate to say anything lest it be updated and corrected ..... 2 shot outside temple, 4 shot inside temple plus one dead shooter.

    More hype, probably another staged event, too. (I was also going to link that same video btw)

    Sikhs will not be caught out like that again. If I ever have to go into battle, the only warriors I'd want behind me (in order) US Marine, Gurkha, then Sikhs. I'll go alone before any other. Sikhs are fierce.

    HANDS RAISED HIGH IN SURRENDER ...... I have no idea for sure, ....... like Sasquash, I want to see the body. Oh, they have a body. Single white male dressed in black, and dead. Anything else I guess we can fill in the blanks. IMHO the second amendment is printed in stone. Even if there is 46 more mass shootings before the scheduled election in November and we oust Lord Obama it changes nothing.
    BTW, does Wisconsin have CCW or are they a bunch of lefties. I know they were not happy with their new Republican Governor, and tried and failed to oust him.

    Not good. Playing right into the script....don't have an assault weapon? No problem, we'll just mention the name to make the point. Was the guy carrying legally? Doesn't matter, just mention the new CCW law for implication purposes.

    Spin mastery.....

    "But we know the more assault weapons we distribute the more situations like this we will have," he said.
    The gunman had used a 9mm semi-automatic pistol, which was recovered at the scene. Police were trying to track the origin of the weapon.

    what does the one have to do with the other?

    God help us all if these shootings are a result of Obamma winning the presidency.

    In regards to the media, was looking at a mail order catalog today, and found a Tshirt that they need to have shoved in their faces. It said "If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your BIG MOUTH!"

    What really ticks me off is the fact that the media is pushing the fact that this jackleg was a veteran.He was discharged and busted from E-5 to E-4 and given an OTH discharge. He was kicked out back in 1998 but the media still insist on putting all veterans in a bad light.

    Yeah, one would hope that folks in a Psyops unit would have a basic understanding of world population groups, if not before they joined, at least by the time they separated. It seems that the fellow who wrote the above article has a misunderstanding of what day to day activities of Psyops units are, if he thinks that there is any sort of connection between the Colorado shooter and the Sikh Temple shooter. The common thread that links them together, in my opinion, is that they are both crazies.

    Military Psyops is more about printing and distributing leaflets than it is some CIA-esque unit delving into mind altering techniques. In Psyops, you attempt to develop an understanding of what makes a particular population group tick - what is important to them, what they want, what they need, who they like, who they hate; and exploit those elements with information spin and material assistance.

    The Sikh Temple shooter doesn't seem like he was a shining star in any of his endeavors and, for someone like him, I don't think it mattered who he killed. He just needed to make a splash on the news media and lash out at anyone different from himself. Some people can only validate their own existence through hate.

    And I agree with Ghrit's earlier comment. The Sikhs are fierce as a people and culture. I was on a SpecWar Det aboard a floating sea base in the Persian Gulf for six months, many years ago. All of the civilian KBR crew of the barge were contractors, and ninety percent were Pakistanis. There was one lone Sikh on the barge who stood about six inches taller than the other Pakistanis (taller with his Turban), and I don't think I ever saw him speak to anyone while I was there. He quietly did his job, but when he moved about the barge, crowds of Pakistanis would part before him like the Red Sea before Moses. He had such a deadly serious demeanor that it just wouldn't enter your mind to joke with him or even attempt to interact with him.

    If you're a string from the puppetmaster, when you focus on someone to do play the lead character, do you settle on people like Holmes and this guy, or bright, effervescent, jovial, many friends, great family types of people?

    Side notes:
    Sikhs and Paks have a long standing border dispute. Looking just at population numbers you can see why the Paks give way. Sikhs tend to follow TRs dictum of speak softly and carry a big stick.
    I have worked with Sikhs stateside, they are good folks all around, and work very hard and seriously at being the best at what they do, truck drivers or engineers.
    Also have exposure to Sikh culture while working in Asia.
