“As many as 38 U.S. service members killed themselves in July, making it the worst month for suicides among both active- and non-active-duty soldiers since the Army began releasing statistics in 2009.
Of all the soldiers who took their own lives last month, 26 were currently serving in the military, according to Lt. Col. Lisa Garcia, an Army spokeswoman.”
I found this story on a U.K. news site. I searched for it all over the mainstream media outlets and nada, zilch, nothing. Overseas sites are doing a better job reporting what is happening in the U.S. than our own MSM. But as we all know, they are nothing but propaganda arms of the government.
Anyone who has a family member serving in the U.S. military should be livid over these numbers of suicides. And anyone who has a family member serving better damn well be trying to talk them out of re-upping or if they have a family member contemplating joining, lock them in a closet or whatever else you have to do to keep them from joining.
Because there’s no honor in the way these wars are being conducted. They’re being waged against people who couldn’t attack us in a million years. And civilians are increasingly being targeted. These wars are immoral and serve no purpose other than to enrich the very well-connected and their elites puppet-masters. But I still hear the shouts “Support the troops!” That little propaganda phrase has worked well for the elites in the past but the “troops” are just pawns in the sick game that the elites are playing with us.
More servicemen are committing suicide than are being killed in the hostilities. That ought to tell you something of how these conflicts are being waged. When a veteran can’t withstand the horrors of what he’s witnessed and been made to do and thinks the only escape from the pain is suicide, something is horribly wrong. And an average of one per day are taking exactly that route.
Why do you think that drone warfare is quickly becoming the method of choice to take out so-called “enemy insurgents” and a lot of the time, their families too? It lends an air of detachment to what would otherwise be a bloody, stressful experience.
Look for drones to gain much more prominence as leviathan’s weapon of choice.
