Thank God! The number of people who won't be killing innocents anymore has increased.
This is a good sign! Organized murderers are self-destructing at a faster pace. God bless America.

Ifn ya expect me to shed a tear for the genocidal neep noddles, ya got anither thing a'comin'.

They were NOT drafted. It was volunteer. They were there to kill people who didna cow to the fecked up U.S. government (which is doin' a guid job 'o destroyin' its own), or had monetary practises curtailin' usury (this is a GUID thing), or had resources the U.S. was oot tae STEAL.

Fine! The more the merrier!

Yes please take a politician, judge, stockbroker, corporate executive, or lawyer with you when you kill yourself to do the earth a favor at the same time to make up for the tragedy of your own death. Even the removal of one of your "superior" officers that completely disregards his oath of office and allows domestic enemies to run our country and rig elections year after year, would be a great way to go.

They commit suicide because they realized that the lie of "being all you can be" was just that: a big-assed LIE. These people thought they were joining to fight FOR the people of their country; instead, they were bought out by a power-hungry criminal war machine. Many of these were young men and women who had NO idea what they were getting into, and were forced into committing atrocities in the name of "patriotism."

Have a little compassion. We're all in this together now. The governments of the world have destroyed enough lives. Let's not join their bandwagon, too.

The military & VA are labeling the service members/veterans as CRAZY, ADDICTED, and ALCOHOLIC for life in their medical records and at the same time mailing them "DISABILITY CLAIM DENIED" letters; good luck for them getting jobs or housing with those issues on their records, which the VA & Military releases to everyone!

August says:

The VA is spending over $100 million to find out "WHY" the veterans are committing suicide, but the one thing the VA absolutely refuses to do.....ASK THE VETERANS WHY!

Maybe they were killed by friendly fire such as with
Pat Tillman; never underestimate ones govt.

August says:

The VA & Military's treatment model of never-ending "How do you feel?" group therapy nonsense, handfuls of meds that don't work, mandatory 12-Step religious cult conversion, and PRISON-LIKE living conditions...IS A RECIPE FOR DISASTER!

The VA is spending over $100million(!!) to find out why Veterans commit suicide? August, let me tell you for free that the (psych) meds do work and that's maybe the bulk of the problem in a nutshell.

The reality that Alkemhist has pointed out is a most concise analysis of what has likely driven these souls to take their lives.

The fluorine based drugs they're given only make matters worse.

The lousy troop-dupes reap what they sow! They are nothing more than agents for war profiteering bankster gambler addicts in the Wall $treet casino... and their $ociopathic cousins, the Pentagon penises in the military industial complex. Like a growing segment of the Amerika population, I DON'T support the god damn troops! I curse them!

No sympathy here! We have had enough! The suicide of every Amerikan '$oldier' is one less gun in the world, a capitalist pig gun that does nothing but deliver destruction and death for the $ake of ruling class profits. And while I'm at it, we've also had enough of the Jim Crow apartheid policies of Zionist wackos in theocrazy of Israel. I curse that house too!

Marc says:

While I don't support the wars, cheering the suicide of these soldiers is wrong. Most of them are 18-20 something, and have grown up brainwashed by our mass media and education system. They were DUPED into this war then many realize they have gone to war for the wrong reasons and kill themselves. Its only been a few years since any real opposition like this website have had a voice, and most people still don't know about it. How are they supposed to know any better?

Tony says:

As stated by Dr. Breggin in the above Richard Gale and Gary Null article: psych drugs can cause PTSD effects which can and often do comprise suicidal ideation. But when it comes to treating 'PTSD' soldiers are being given more of the same psych drug treatments And who gets the $100 million to find out why so many suicides? Doubtless mainly the psych racket that is chiefly responsible for foisting these drugs on unwary servicemen. Neat!

USAma Bin Laden says:

American troops need to emulate their predecessors during the Vietnam War and do one thing: turn the guns around and start attacking the real enemy, your commanding officers and ultimately the American regime and political establishment.

Fragging your commanding officers was a US military tradition during the Vietnam War that America has tried to bury and sweep under the rug--lest any US soldiers get any ideas today.

It is America's worst nightmare that their own troops will someday wake up and wage war where it is most needed: in the cities of the USA itself.

google: nov- 2007- veterans- suicide and find out that since 2003 there are 120 veterans who take their lives every week of the year.6000 each year.Stay in denial or find out nobody wants to know.

msbetz says:

What makes everyone so sure that the troops are killing themselves? There should be an investigation, maybe it's infiltrators in the American military by the enemy....Remember Major Hussan? He was in the American military and killed 30 some unarmed military and injured others on a military base...nothing has happened to him!!

2011 / 08 / 16
Tael says:

So, as ever, it is denial.

USAma Bin Laden says:

@msbetz

If that's the case, more power to these "infiltrators."

The American military is a war criminal institution from top to bottom.

Every American stormtrooper that is killed represents one less American terrorist to threaten or murder or menace people around the world.

It's not politically correct to even think this in America, but there should be more Hasan Akbars or Major Hussains.

Has anyone seen the videos on youtube showing ourtroops shooting civilians and laughing. One young soilder bragging about how he made 500 dollars by his buddies giving him 100 dollars for each civilian he shot. He said tomorrow i will make more. Videos of civilians being shot from a helicopter. people being shot in their car coming toward a road block. No wonder so many are committing sucicide.our news media only tell one side. i remember when the US first attacked the Revolutionary Guard. The army closed off the road to Baghdad on both end while saddam's troops were marching toward baghdad waving small white flags. The USAF bombed them into peices. large pits were dug and the bodies were bull dozed over. the reporters who filmed and witnessed this were naturally foreign corresponpants. they said legs and arms were sticking out. one video is of a soilder explaining shooting civilians was all right because his commandersay nothing would happen to him. what have our young men and women been subjected to all for the coporate elite and oil. Was it worth it? That war for all intensive purposes was over in three days of bombing. The rest were killed in the bombing of Kuwait when Saddam follishly trusted Washington. a must for those who supported the wars in Iraq and Lybia. www.addictedtowar.com

If you witness a suicide it remain with you forever. I served three tours in Vietnam as a Marine. One day after returning from a day patrol we were cleaning our rifles. I was sitting on my bunk and two bunks down from me was a young marine who placed his M-16 in his mouth and blew out his brains. No on esaw him in time to stop him. On his bunk was a dear John letter. This girl was all he ever talked about. Mike was to rotate to the states in three weeks. You never know what sets someone off. Mike was with me for almost one tour. Our troops will need our support when they return but never ask them to talk about the things they saw or did. Pay for their meal or buy them a cup of coffe and thank them for serving. We can't judge but i feel we have a right to know the truth about these wars.

When kinky and Morgan have watched their child lose their life because they've been sold a bill of goods trying to believe they made a difference to the world in the only way they knew, we'll see how much of a good thing it is that they are not here. How much are you two doing for anyone or anything? Who needs war with idiots and warmongering mouths like yours around? Go find something meaningful to bitch about and leave the dead alone. All of them. You know nothing about this subject.

LocalHero says:

I'll save them the $100 million and explain why soldiers are committing suicide.

The act of taking another person's life is a soul-destroying event and, deep down, even these arrested adolescents know it. As much as the military tries to bury any connection to humanity and any shred of decency of these brainwashed children, it's always there and it makes living unbearable.

Shame on all of you!! These men and women are doing their jobs! They are not making the decisions they are just doing what they are told. They should have never been put in these situations in the first place, the heads of the money machine, I mean the government chose this road. I thank all of our troops their courage, honor and commitment to this country even though so many of you don't deserve them. If it wasn't for these brave men and women who knows what language we would be speaking now. My heart and prayers go out to the families of the fallen and it hurts me to the core to see such shameful comments from a bunch of ungrateful lot. I just wish there was some way that I could help prevent any further preventable losses.
God Bless Our Troops!
