Ok. So, the plot was: six dudes from New Jersey buy some guns and storm Fort Dix. The Fort Dix that is full of lots and lots of Army reservists with way, way more guns. And, like, extensive military training and sh*t. Yes, thank god these terrorists have been caught and locked up before they could be killed within minutes of deciding to carry out the dumbest f*cking terrorist plot we’ve ever heard of.The person who wrote that didn't have the slightest idea how vulnerable military bases might be to attack, or how much damage six terrorists could inflict. Unfortunately, today's incident demonstrates yet again -- as if anyone with a clue needed another reminder -- of just how much damage a single determined individual can cause, with nothing more than a couple of handguns: twelve dead, thirty-one wounded. From the latest reports, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the shooter, wasn't some hardened, highly-trained terrorist-commando. He was a psychiatrist. It's something to keep in mind the next time someone tries to laugh off a disrupted terrorist plot. It doesn't take training and experience, or sophisticated weaponry to gun down a bunch of unarmed people, even on a military base.
