Every 80 minutes a US soldier kills himself. That is 25x more than died in battle.

Update: A commenter corrected me and pointed out that it wasn’t every 80 seconds with the following remark: 80 seconds …. mmm, don’t think so Eve.

And he is right of course. It’s only every a 80 minutes!!! My unbelievable bad. It’s still 25 human beings more than the one who died in the war zones you fucking moron and they as much as the people who died in those war zones, the military and the civilians caught up in the bloodshed, should not have died in the first fucking place. Now get of my blog and go and say some stupid things on other blogs. Please!

People don’t kill themselves over nothing. People kill themselves when they feel desperate, powerless and with no hope in hell to forget horrors they have seen or perpetrated and while the government tries to blame roadside bombs and physical ailments more then ever before US soldiers are killing themselves to escape PTSD, desperation and the powerlessness that comes with the understanding you have been used and abused for the profit of a few psychopaths who dance the night away while deciding over other wars they want to start.

HERE’S a window into a tragedy within the American military: For every soldier killed on the battlefield this year, about 25 veterans are dying by their own hands.

A filmmaker explores the fate of Ryan Yurchison, who returned from Iraq with P.T.S.D. and died after failing to find treatment.

An American soldier dies every day and a half, on average, in Iraq or Afghanistan. Veterans kill themselves at a rate of one every 80 minutes. More than 6,500 veteran suicides are logged every year — more than the total number of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined since those wars began.

These unnoticed killing fields are places like New Middletown, Ohio, where Cheryl DeBow raised two sons, Michael and Ryan Yurchison, and saw them depart for Iraq. Michael, then 22, signed up soon after the 9/11 attacks.

“I can’t just sit back and do nothing,” he told his mom. Two years later, Ryan followed his beloved older brother to the Army.

    My take is that you will witness thousands of US Military killing themselves. Everything they have done in Iraq will be brought to the USA and since the U.S. Soldiers won’t shoot on Americans…guess what? Foreign troops will. Wake up people.
