Very tragic....

...but also very strange...even ironic.
Cant wait to hear what the media makes of this...
Or if we'll ever hear what the shooters motive was

It is strangely ironic and I too wonder what the motive was?

My guess is this will be an Islamist but that is just speculation.

Why anyone would want to advertise who they are like that is really beyond comprehension.

Guess he wanted to tell his story so maybe people would try to understand what these guys do and why. I personally know 2 snipers. One was Army the other a Marine. Both Vietnam vets. They saved countless American lives by doing what they were trained to do. One of them has been on television on more than one occasion. Both are proud of what they did and I'm glad to know them and they have my respect.

Latest news says that the shooter was a Marine Vet himself? Hard to fathom his rational but (according to the news) he went after the guy that Kyle was with and Kyle tried to help or was just in the wrong place and the time.

Don't get me wrong here, the guy has done a wonderful service to this country and he should be proud of what he's done. My point is advertising what you have done is putting a target on yourself. There is a lot of people in this world that want you dead.

Like I said, I was just speculating. The point remains though, any of these guys putting themselves in the public spotlight are putting themselves at risk.

Eddie Ray Routh should be tied out at the 1000 yd mark and slowly shot to death by other snipers.

I HATE reading stories like this. I just hope the FACTS come out on what really happened, unlike with the S/H incident.

May God rest his soul. A REAL American hero & true Patriot. He will be missed.

This guy didn't care about book sales - he put the book out there so civilians could get a grasp on how horrific war is, and veterans of the military could see how you can get back to a normal life once home. This ain't about book sales.

The man did what he believed in. I don't know many MARINES that are real good at just hiding behind a keypad to share his beliefs nor hide under a rock because of projected outcomes. Semper fi my Brother, you died well.
