US Army Major Nidal Malik Hassan's shooting rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas brings an old concern to question. Can a Muslim serve effectively in the US Military when the focus of the American forces is the WAR ON TERROR (re-named: Foreign Contingency Operation by the administration of Barack Hussein Obama)? The war on terror, by whatever name it's known, is focused on radical Islam.
I'm not saying that all Americans who embrace Islam automatically embrace the radical agendas of the Shiia or Suni, however, where is the higher loyalty to Muslims?
All combat takes place at night at the junction of four map segments and the best laid plans don't survive the first contact with the enemy. Those axioms demonstrate the chaotic nature of combat. Given the need for reliable soldiers, I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable serving in combat with a Muslim when our job is to kill Muslims.
