Two soldiers have been shot, one killed, at a military recruiting centre in Arkansas.

The suspect, Abdulhakim Muhammad, a person of no particular appearance or religious views, has been arrested.

Police found a small arsenal of weapons in Mr Muhammed’s car, including an assault rifle, a .22 calibre rifle, a .380 calibre automatic pistol and ammunition.

Leaders of the pro-life movement have always called for peaceful protest against the horror of abortion, and have consistently denounced the use of violence in any form. They also consistently condemmed the murder of George Tiller.

Some on the left have openly called for violence against members of the military, and especially military recruiters.

So where are the voices from the left, raised in condemnation of the murder of a young man whose job was to welcome new enlistees back to their home towns?
