The leading cause of death for active duty military is not the foreign troops, itís themselves.

The Cost of War: Latest DoD Figures Show Suicide Kills Almost 5 Times as Many Troops as Combat

February 12, 2016

By Matt Agorist

As bureaucratic fatcats sit back from their lush taxpayer-funded offices in giant marble buildings debating on whether or not to send more troops to the Middle East, a crisis is being ignored.

Last week, the Department of Defense (DoD) released its 2014 calendar year Suicide Event Report (DoDSER), which details the number of suicide attempts and deaths for U.S. service members.

The numbers are startling.

In all of 2014, a total of 55 US troops, in both hostile and non-hostile situations, lost their lives in foreign occupations. The number of soldiers who killed themselves is nearly 5 times that amount.

Nope it's not themselves, it's pharmaceuticals. They pump these guys full of mind-altering drugs, even though there is suicide warnings on the labels, and want to blame it all on the war, no it's the drugs. We did not have this kind of suicide after other wars. They know this well. This is a war in and of itself against America's finest.

"They" want to reduce the human population of this planet from 7 billion to 500 million.

That's what this is about.

I think the so called "anti-depressants" is a type of eugenics to get rid of people that are deemed mentally ill. Hitler did the same thing, this is just a more covert way of doing it. I mean why the F&*K would a product that is supposedly getting rid of depression need a suicide warning, get real.

I also think they are pushing them harder on America soldiers as they are more prone to be conservative, Christian etc.

No more sympathy for the troops. they are now Al Qaeda's Army in M.E.
today its Not a draft like Vietnam, its VOLUNTEER so they don't have to be there and shouldn't be. If they go? they go alone, don't cry & whimper when their banker/killers betray them

2013 259 suicides
2014 269 suicides

How can it be almost exactly the same?
