They have been forced to become satanists and if they didn't, they got latrine duty and other demeaning jobs and probably "suicided". You can tell by some of the things they did in theatre that our previous mililtary would have prosecuted them for and instead they are encouraging them to use torture and murder and rape as weapons of occupation which we would not have done. This is "ISRAEL'S" antisocial illegal way of conducting war and now its been installed into our military by these foreign occupiers of our government. This is NOT the America I grew up in.
Now with those drugs and the pressure from the chain of command, they are converting them into animals instead of humans. Then they are killing them or harassing them if they are oath keepers, when they come home or if they show humanity in the field. Watch and see if this below is not being used to prepare us for these foreign infiltrators of our government to KILL MORE OF OUR SOLDIERS SO THEY CANNOT HELP US FIGHT OFF THE FOREIGN INVADERS IN OUR GOVERNMENT, AND OUR MILITARY READINESS FOR WW III THAT THEY HAVE PLANNED TO FINISH US OFF, WOULD BE AFFECTED AND GUARANTEE OUR LOSS OF THAT WAR. Trust me, this is way bigger than what Stephen Lendman is trying to sell us.
Disinfo agents always use partial truth in order to give validity to the part that is not truth, rather redirect us away from truth. The fact that he does not ask the hard questions or seek the real answers is what bothers me. He is not dumb, so its not incompetence.
I have personally talked to returning vets and this is what they tell me is going on big time and sodomy and homosexuality is encouraged by the chain of command and then used for blackmail to keep soldiers in line. That is why our soldiers are suffering from PTSD, its because of their enemies "within" the military... and not the enemies in the other country that they are fighting in, as they are used to. They can't talk about it for fear of their lives. I was told never to repeat this, but this article has made me break my promise because it so blatantly an advanced notice of further murders of our soldiers at home and in the field. BRING THEM ALL HOME NOW. These are our children.
Record Numbers of US Military and Veteran Suicides
Headlines like this should shock: Suicides Outpace War Deaths. Surge in Military Suicides. Nearly Two Dozen Veterans Commit Suicide Daily. (VN: After what they just did to the veteran sniper, Kyle, I believe these are not suicides, and that these foreign occupiers of our gov are killing our children. That is proof of a war declared against us.)
These reports and similar ones reveal imperialism's dark side. War takes its toll. Civilians suffer most. So do many combatants and veterans after returning home. Most people don't know. Little gets reported. Why do active duty personnel and vets take their own lives? (VN: I do not believe they are doing that. I believe the satanic forces have multiple agendas and because these men can lead us in battle against the occupiers of our government, they are being suicided, especially if they are oathkeepers. It is probably also a ritualistic offering to satan as well. They have already gone after them in other ways, which I feared when I heard they were organized and had to giver their names to that organization. Its a typical "war by deception" tactic to do just that. It makes it easy to track them down and kill them. These zionists are cowards. Watch out for Oathkeepers founder.)
Unbearable emotional pain consumes them. Daily trauma builds. So does intolerable stress. Relief is desperately sought. Suicide is chosen. It's a last option. Others were exhausted. Preventable warning signs aren't heeded. They include depression, withdrawal, lethargy, loss of interest in usual activities, appetite, weight, sleep and other behavioral changes, recurring suicidal thoughts, and feelings of hopelessness and despair.
Daily stress is bad enough. Combat exacerbates it. It's intolerable for many. The little known human cost of war raises disturbing questions. America consumes its own. (VN: That is all well and good, STeven, however, we have been here many times before. What you are saying does not explain the record numbers of them, and I want to know why? Why didn't you find out why and what makes this time different. Even I, a non reporter, can figure out enough to ask that question and is that why the President signed an executive order to assassinate Americans without a trial???? Was it to cover the zionist assassins in Mossad who maybe taking out of soldiers who are not having problems, love their country and willing to train us and fight with us against the foreign occupier "DHS ZIONIST NAZI STORM TROOPER GESTAPO" of our nation??? DHS is completely run by a foreign nations spies, and that foreign nation consists of cowards afraid to fight their enemy face to face. That is the good news. Cowards never win ultimately. It means they believe in nothing except their own well being and that is not even close to the power of passion for a nation or an ideal or principle. You lose just based on that alone.)
Epidemic post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) levels affect hundreds of thousands of combat forces and vets. (VN: Didn't it strike you as odd, that with these figures below, that the VA has done nothing about it except a bandaid approach? Critical thinking requires asking questions of stuff that does not make sense. This does not make sense after you look at history and all the wars we have been in and this one is nothing compared to others. So WHY ARE THEY SUPPOSEDLY DOING IT and if they are not, then who is killing them? ASK THE DAMN QUESTION, PLEASE or I will start to wonder about you. I already know about activist post who censors my comments, which screams volumes about where he is coming from. )
The VA estimates over 30% of Vietnam vets, around 10% of Gulf War forces, and up to 20% of America's Afghanistan and Iraq troops.
VA and DOD officials consistently understate problems. Independent reports reveal more. Some say nearly half of Afghan and Iraq vets have emotional and/or physical combat injuries.
The Veterans Crisis Line gets hundreds of thousands of calls. CNAS said from 2005 - 2010, "approximately one service member committed suicide every 36 hours." Too little to late reflects DOD/VA policy.
In FY 2009, 1,868 vets made suicide attempts. Many who don't succeed try again. Multiple war theater deployments increase the suicide incidence.
PTSD-affected service members are redeployed. Many cope with drugs and/or alcohol. Others sent on combat missions try to stay out of harm's way. In war zones, it's not easy.
Socio-economic conditions at home compound mental trauma. Unemployment, homelessness, and related issues affect thousands. Numbers compound annually. For many it's too much to bear.
VA data through September 2012 reported 26,531 homeless vets. Double the number is more likely. Others risk losing their homes, rely on temporary housing, or get inadequate federal vouchers for rent.
Around 1.5 million vets risk homelessness. Numbers like this should shock. They go largely unreported. They, and others like it, reflect a time bomb of trouble. It's largely unaddressed. A small fraction of those needing help get it. Others get too little. America's vets are hung out to dry. Funding prioritizes warmaking, not healing. (VN: Au Contraire, Steven, why are you not asking the hard questions? Why aren't you saying "WHY? IS THE MILITARY TREATING THEM THIS WAY?" Any real military officer who follows his oath, in the Pentagon would also be asking "why?" Oh, thats right, Bush, Cheney, and this administration has purged all those high ranking officers out of the Pentagon. HOW COME YOU DIDN'T ASK ABOUT THAT?
Since 2000, nearly a million vets were diagnosed with one or more mental health problems. The VA admits its data understate. Its own suicide hotline averages 10,000 calls a month.
More than a million vets await unaddressed disability claims. Many are PTSD-related. Months or years pass without help. They're last in line to get. Most never do. No wonder suicides mount.
In May 2012, AP said America's vets "are filing for disability benefits at (a) historic rate." They're the "most medically, mentally troubled generation in US history."
War's toll is one of the most underreported stories. Hundreds of thousands of combat vets won't ever be the same again.
They come home sick. They stay that way. They're traumatized. They're unable to cope. Emotional damage done goes largely unrecognized. It's an unseen wound. Many needing help don't get it.
The emotional ordeal is overwhelming. It's terrifying. War vets are gravely affected. PTSD causes emotional numbness. Left untreated, it worsens. Horrifying flashbacks are commonplace. (VN: So, what is your objective in listing all this out? What is the difference between this war and every other war we have fought? DU POISONING and what does that do to the soldiers brain? Did you ask? Well, here, read this, STeven and let us know what you think, that is if you are for real. OUR TROOPS ARE FIGHTING TWO DIFFERENT ENEMIES, ONE FOREIGN IN THE FIELD AND ONE AT HOME WHO PROFESSES TO BE OUR ALLY AND OCCUPIEDS OUR GOVERNMENT, which is Israeli. This is the USS LIBERTY EXPANDED INTO OUR ENTIRE MILITARY FIGHTING FORCE TO AFFECT OUR MILITARY READINESS TO FIGHT WW III and thus ENSURE WE LOSE THAT WAR. How dare you..... the real enemy sits in the pentagon from a foreign nation. GOT THAT, STEVEN? you are not dumb, so you know. As a commenter said.....THEY DID THIS IN NAM AS WELL WITH AGENT ORANGE. They won't clean up the DU either.)
Images, sounds, smells and subconscious feelings trigger them. Emotions well up inside. They surface self-destructively. It can happen any time. Some victims recover in months. For others it's much longer or never.
War is a destructive slippery slope. It drives victims to emotional hell. They're sure what afflicts them. PTSD prevents normal functioning.
Victims say they're too tired. They can't think. They can't function normally. Their brains are overwhelmed.
They lash out at others for no reason. They harm those they love. They can't explain why. Diagnosing PTSD is tricky. Often it's not done. Victims needing help don't get it. Others get too little. There's no cure.
Measurable physical/biological symptoms aren't apparent. Those mentioned above are commonplace. Others include headaches, unexplained pain, inability to cope, severe anxiety, rage, and survivor guilt for those who lost buddies.
Toughing it out depends on developing coping mechanisms. It's not easy without competent professional help. For many it involves long-term struggle. Too often it's too much to bear.
Broken human psyches aren't easily repaired. Shocking suicide numbers explain best. More on that below.
David Grossman analyzed the art of killing. His book titled On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society explained an inherent aversion. Doing so causes mental anguish and harm. For many it's too much to bear. (VN: CHECK OUT WHO PUBLISHED THIS BOOK, AND CHECK WHO OWNS THE CO. I suspect its the same people owning the movie industry, or he would never have gotten published if they did not want this out there. Why do they want us believing this? SO WE WILL OVERTHROW OUR GOVERNMENT? NEVER HAPPEN. We will overthrow the bankers, though.
What he says is true to some extent, and can be said of all wars, but then here is another author who refuses to ask "Why is this war different?" What are they doing this time around that makes it this bad? Come on, people, we are doomed if we do NOT CORRECTLY IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. In Nam it was Johnson who was the minion of Israel and why he aided them in taking out JFK, but now they control the entire government and recently finished their purging of those against them. If there is a WW, let it be all the people against the infiltrator edomite khazar zionist bankers. That is who everyones real enemy is.)
Combatants have to be taught to kill. Many do it reluctantly. Others abstain or try to. Either way takes a toll. Killing "comes with a price, and societies must learn that their soldiers will have to spend the rest of their lives living with what they have done," said Grossman. (VN: Liar, that is true ONLY IF WE CONTINUE TO LET THE ZIONISTS CONTROL OUR GOVERNMENT AND EVERYONE NOW KNOWS IT GLOBALLY SINCE THEY ARE ALL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM.)
Jobs involved in harming others cut both ways. War is hell. Who knows better than combat vets. Understated VA data say plenty. Its 2012 Suicide Data Report said about 22 vets commit suicide daily.
Double the number wouldn't surprise. Only 16 states indicate cause of veterans' deaths. VA uses three-year old data. Many deaths aren't called suicide. They slip under the radar unnoticed. Many war zone-related suicides are misreported.
Those that are outnumber combat deaths. Officials numbers reflect nearly one a day. DOD and VA officials shun publicity. Getting it harms recruiting. Unwary kids are mislead. They're unaware what awaits them.
Many suicide victims are age 50 or older. Combat-related trauma is long-lasting. According to a Center for a New American Security (CNAS) suicide report, veterans commit suicide every 80 minutes. (VN: Thats because DU EATS THE BRAIN FOREVER. and psychotropic drugs never leave the system. And satanism is promoted and once you do it, you can never forget the babies you killed as a sacrifice to Satan. The military is promoting that right now, introduced by the EDOMITES WHO ARE THE OFFSPRING OF SATAN, in the person of GENERAL AQUINO, TRAITOR PAR EXCELLENCE.)
Study authors Margaret Harrell and Nancy Berglass said:
"America is losing its battle against suicide by veterans and service members. And as more troops return from deployment, the risk will only grow."Many vets return home feeling helpless. Marine Corps vet Jason Christiansen watched his life unravel. "At one point, I was sitting there with a gun in my mouth," he said. A friend urged him to seek help.
Despair holds out only for so long. Left unaddressed, it often succumbs. (VN: Foreign occupied) America treats its own with disdain. (VN: if the Israeli's are willing to outright murder our sailors as they did on the USS Liberty and the USS Cole, what makes anyone think they would feel bad about treating our soldiers with "disdain" in the dual Israeli citizens' capacity as infiltrators and spies within our own government, ESPECIALLY HOMELAND SECURITY AND THE PENTAGON?)
In January, the Supreme Court turned a blind eye. It declined hearing a lawsuit. It challenging abusive VA treatment. The constitutional rights of vets with mental health disabilities were denied. (VN: of course it did, we have a court packed with DUAL ISRAELI CITIZENS AND YOU CAN TELL BY THEIR DECISIONS. They have no idea what a "free country" looks like, so they can't even pretend like they should)
Tens of thousands of troubled vets are at risk. Expect
Stephen Lendman lives in Chicago (VN: that screams volumes, home of the Edomite Zionist Mafia and Steven is still alive, enough said. Thats why he has never once mentioned how all this fits with the protocols. He doesn't even mention them with respect the fact they match what is happening today in our country.) and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. His new book is titled How Wall Street Fleeces America: Privatized Banking, Government Collusion and Class War.
