Army says deployments not linked to suicides PLEASE CLICK HERE AND READ THIS

"The Army released frightening new suicide statistics Thursday, but suggested the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have little to do with this alarming trend.

In fact, the vice chief of staff of the Army said that after reviewing suicide statistics for 2008, multiple combat deployments actually make soldiers less likely to commit suicide."

So if you are sent back to see/cause this over and over,

you are less likely to stick a pistol in your own mouth?

If you are concerned about our returning troops, you really should read this story AND click on the comments link at the bottom, AND click here for a couple of VERY thoughtful comments.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
