FORT HOOD MASSACRE

MASSACRE AT FORT HOOD

5 November, 2009 has become a date that will live in infamy. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly used a personally owned Fabrique Nationale Five-seveN handgun to shoot nearly four dozen of his fellow soldiers. 13 were dead, and at least 30 were wounded.

COMMENTARY: LESSONS OF FORT HOOD

The investigation into the shooting at Fort Hood, allegedly carried out by Nidal Malik Hasan, is continuing. That said, a number of lessons are already emerging –lessons necessary to prevent the next such attack (or much worse).

 

A STRATEGIC QUAGMIRE AND A BLACK HOLE

We met with Lt. Col Ralph Peters, USA (Ret.), Fox news strategic analyst and New York Post columnist in Washington, D.C. for a face to face since some of his columns have been reprinted in Soldier of Fortune.

MASS MURDER AT FORT HOOD

As an officer in the United States Army, I’m angry for so many reasons over what happened at Ft Hood. I’m angry that twelve of my fellow soldiers and a contractor were murdered. I’m angry that over thirty people have suffered life-altering injuries from which they will never fully recover. I’m angry that the lives of so many families have been forever ruined. I’m angry that this happened on an Army post on American soil where soldiers should be safe.

A MERC’S LAST HURRAH

The Cold War years were the days of the mercs, of their wild and lawless adventures in Africa and across the globe in the proxy war playgrounds of the superpowers. In 2004, a legendary British merc who was heavily involved in African exploits during the Cold War attempted to recapture the excitement of those years. The clever, well-educated Simon Mann had captured the imagination of adventure seekers and had amassed fortunes through his exploits.

PRIVATE MILITARY COMPANIES

Companies such as Executive Outcomes (EO), and other private military companies (PMCs) that followed in our tracks, would never have been able to operate across the world if the international community and the UN in particular had taken decisive action in so-called trouble spots or flash points. Time and time again, the UN blue-helmeted peacekeeping forces proved themselves incapable of doing the job.
