My son got to meet and spend an evening at special dinner with Mr. Kyle a few years ago. He was incredibly impressed with this great American hero. This news left us all shocked. It's a sad day for heroes.
We drank a toast to his memory today, and thanked God for his service.
RIP, son of Liberty
when i first heard the news i did not want beleive it. my heart goes out kyle's famliy and friends chris kyle navy seal rest in peace.
G-d bless this brave and honorable man. My compassion goes to his family and friends. I am sure he is in Heaven now.
Of course we all know how the left will slant this tragedy.
If any of you have a spare tin foil hat lying around, shoot me a message please! I'm ready to be fitted for one...
RIP Chris Kyle
That's a bone-jarring shock for sure! You just have to wonder what happened at the gun range to cause such a tragedy. The shooter was supposedly suffering PTSD so maybe that's a large part of it. Chris Kyle had given so much to this nation of ours, he certainly did not deserve what happened to him. Prayers to his family and friends........
His wife is going to have a very hard time with this one. She almost left him over his refusal to leave the teams. They almost didn't make it when he did. Now that things seemed on track with the family all the sudden blindsided by a senseless murderer. Too many survive downrange to die at home.
We're pretty broken up over this.
Please provide strength and comfort to his family.
Continue to bless, and protect his extended family of military brothers I know will honor this huge loss by carrying on with the dignity and poise they each possess.
This is another terrible loss for our country of a brave patriot and warrior. I will pray for God's peace and comfort for his family. Thank you, Chris Kyle, for fighting for freedom and your fellow veterans.
Yes, it is sad. We have lost another American hero, as has his family, to which I extend my condolensces.
Never forget, that by a document let out from the wonderful Gestapo, also known as Homeland Security, in the state of Missouri, the MIAC document, that it had detailed every returning military as a possible homegrown terrorist. It was Homeland Security, who first suggested, that any and all military veterans be denied the purchase of any firearms, based on that assumption, as well as disarming these same veterans of their already owned firearms!
Something in this official story is just not ringing true. And there's no way in hell the last one committed suicide. Seems to me somebody wants these guys silenced permanently. Scuse me now, I have a tin foil hat to polish.
I live very near where all this happened and something about this just feels weird...dunno but sure makes my skin crawl. Several news reports lately about veterans have been popping up, making them appear ruthless and out of control...something just isn't right...
And Nappy wants mental health exams for vets and to grab their guns....all of this plays in to their agenda.
Actually, Orange, I read somewhere that they are bypassing exams for all returning veterans and assuming PTSD, and removing their ability to have /own guns.
Yeah I'm not liking that yet another Navy Seal, this one who spoke out against Joe Biden, has now been murdered. There are WAY too many Seals murdered in the last year.
Exactly...or make Americans afraid of them as well, you know, enough to "turn them in"...amazing how this Admin and their media sheeple use events to incite "fear". Just like global warming, terrorism, etc. I find it interesting too how that is explained in that Live Free, Die Hard movie a couple years back.
I remember now where I read it...infowars (yes, it does lack some credibility here, sorry about that)...but, again, doesn't surprise me.
Chris Kyle also had a relationship (not personal of course) with Palin, who has again become outspoken of late.
Seriously? I know Nappy has wanted to do something, hadn't heard that it might be happening....so they aren't giving hot breakfast and now determining them to be mentally ill. Won't that work out well for this admin.
I can recall meeting many a combat veteran suffering from PTSD , from WWII to Vietnam, and never once did any of them commit murder. There's something wrong with this story. What drugs was this guy taking? He was likely unstable before he went into combat. PTSD is not an excuse for murder. A good man is dead. To the shooter...I don't care what excuse he gives, he is not worthy of anything but contempt.
I'm surprised the shooter is alive, but I sure hope this scum bag got his a$$ beat.
Now the peeps of Texas will have to pay for this low life's defense and possible treatment for life.
Actually, I do know of a WWII veteran who was suffering from PTSD, although they called it 'shell shock' then. He was the son of a neighbor where I grew up and was in and out of a mental institution for a number of years. He did eventually shoot and kill his brother.
Having served as a marine in Vietnam, I can see how this can happen.
Many posters here do not seem to realize that there are just as many marginal personalities in the military as there are in the civilian pop. But even seemingly well-adjusted individuals can have problems upon returning.
You are trained to kill, and put in a dangerous environment for yearlong deployements. You see death, and kill, and survive. Then you are sent home and expected to readjust overnight. Most do not...and some react in this manner.
I was speaking of my own experience with veterans of combat. One or two incidents does not indicate a trend. PTSD is a fact. But so is the fact that combat vets on the whole do not commit murder. Those that do are anomalies who were likely unstable long before they entered the service.
Not to go all conspiracy theory, but ever since bin Laden got taken out, we've been hearing about so many Seals being killed.
A sad day indeed for our heroes and our Nation
Something strange is going on with all these "SEALS" being killed
Was there a motive?
What's with all the shootings being reported in this country lately? It seems that every other day, there is a school shooting, or a work place shooting. I realize the media is zoned in on this stuff now, so we will hear about everything, but it still seems a bit much all of a sudden. Pardon my ever-increasing skepticism, but this seems just a wee bit too perfect that another Navy SEAL is dead. I will reserve my thoughts, and assume the story is what we are being told, but something doesn't feel right to me.
God bless Chris Kyle and his young family he leaves behind. God bless the other person who died with him. God bless all of our military members and families. This just breaks my heart.
This does not pass the smell test, something very fishy here.
This type of shooting between fellow soldiers does not happen.
And Chinook helicopters with 33 seals on board don't get shot down...unless someone in our government is making it happen.
There is pure Satanic evil residing in Washington. Better get ready.
Well, I know conspiracy theories can be comforting...but alas, these kinds of shootings do happen.
Being in the military, and being a veteran does not give one immunity to dementia nor disaster.
There have been many more mass shootings in the last 4 years than any other time I can think of in the past. I'm not going to call it a 'conspiracy', just a simple fact.
'Guns' haven't become more violent but society in general, has.
Hmm, is it a conspiracy theory that Obama's birth certificate is a blatant forgery?
Is it a conspiracy theory that Obama is in fact trying to destroy our Country?
Time to wake up!
...apparently you suffer from paranoia and illusions of grandeur. Nevertheless, if your conspiracies make you happy, go for it.
LOL, so if one conspiracy proves true, (not saying any that you mention are, because I don't know) then that means they all are. Are you taking logic lessons from the Left?
You're singing my song! And there's no way Navy Seal commanders commit suicide, as is the official story in the death of Job Price a few weeks ago!
Exactly right. Today, our national motto "In God We Trust" has been replaced with "Ignorance Is Bliss". If people who have access to the internet cannot see the crystal clear overwhelming evidence that proves what a reprobate we have in the White House, then I suggest they go look in the mirror to see a big part of the problem our country faces.
