Twelve American soldiers and one civilian were gunned down last Thursday at Fort Hood, Texas.  Were they victims of terrorism?  Could the incident have been prevented?  What does it mean for military diversity in a world plagued by cultural and religious confrontations? Also, North and South Korean ships exchange fire in open sea, and recycled nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union are being used to fuel nuclear power plants in the United States.
