Suicide Epidemic Amongst Iraq War Veterans

Dead Toreador.jpg

I have just seen this op-ed piece entitled “Pentagon Cover Up: 15,000 or More U.S. Casualties in Iraq War“, and this CBS article, “Suicide Epidemic Among Veterans” that show some remarkably disconcerting numbers on the death rate by suicide of our veterans who return from the battle fields of Iraq. Should the government include these deaths as part of the costs of the war in Iraq?

  1. Sad story, linked this to my site for discussion.

    It shouldn’t come as any surprise though, really. We don’t respect our elders in this country, so why would others who serve, such as these military veterans, be any different.

    Expendable life, the officially sanctioned modus operandi of the American government.
