I think it is great news that this guy is alive and seems to be recuperating. Hopefully, we will be able to hear Nidal Malik Hasan’s side of this story.
The reason suicide killers are appealing (for the media at least) is that they are usually blank slates. Even though we now can find their online ramblings that is still not enough. There is always room for the bleeding hearths to speculate that, well, he was not really an evil guy, he was just being mistreated… he was pushed by other people! The poor guy really was so desperate…
Once we get this psychopath to talk about his victims maybe we will be able to see through this. Once people can see that this guy is not really about religion, or government policy, or anything really rational, maybe then we can stop this nonsense bullshit of trying to find explanations for why he decided to open fire and kill old men, women and young recruits.
Maybe, just maybe, we will simply understand that this idiot is just an evil motherfucker that decided to kill for the sake of it, and again simply put, deserves to be put to death as soon as possible. That is the message we as a society should be sending to these guys: we know you exist; we know you can and are willing to kill, but once we get our hands on you we will kill you without mercy. Just like we are about to do with John Allen Muhammad, this other piece of human garbage.
Evil will always be there, and we should do our best to destroy it. There is no magical solution. That’s about it.
