The U.S. is becoming a third world “mess”, very quickly. Sadly, way too many people continue to not see it, as it happens.

The soldiers are responding to the fact that they are
being forced to operate under conditions that no sane
person should be forced to endure. The response to such
folly is predictable and it includes suicide.

The solution to the problem is simple. Give the soldiers
a clear concise goal to achieve....remove ALL restrictions
on achieving it then bring them home. It’s just that simple.

While we’re at it, let’s reduce bartenders’ access to alcohol to reduce drunkenness and doctors’ access to drugs to reduce addiction.

Tobacco? No.

Marijuana? Yes.

Cocaine? No.

Money? Only what The State allows.

We should also, of course, reduce runners’ access to roads to reduce their involvement with their endorphins and eliminate sex to reduce partners’ fixation on their pleasure centers, and, for that matter, we should eliminate or reduce any and all behaviors of which our government nannies don’t approve.

It’s not that Big Brother’s a fascist at heart, he’s just a busybody with a compulsion to stick his long nose into everyone else’s business, and has nothing valuable to do with his time.

Did I red this right? It said only 11% of suicides were by active duty men who had seen combat. If that is true, doesn’t that fly in the face of what everyone (the media etc) is trying to imply?

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

I see the as using a so-called mental health issue to paint our servicemen with a very broad brush and further marginalize them.

We don’t let soldiers vote.

Why would we let them carry guns?

All you have to do to die is lose control for one minute.


Restrict the Kennedys' access to cars first, and then you can worry about firearms.

History didn't begin until these jackboots were born. Men are men and if they want
to suicide lack of firearms will not stop them. Blame the guns though. Idiot PC bs.

Bodies on three fronts of WW2 are littered with suicides.
And WW1 and Roman wars etc. etc. God sorts them out.

This guy is just trying to justify his job at Harvard. Here is information from their website:

Harvard Injury Control Research Center
Firearms Research

To read about HICRC Firearms Research please see the list on the left hand side. There are 20 topics to choose from e.g. Homicide, Suicide, Homicide followed by Suicide, Accidents, Children, Women, Gun Ownership, Gun Storage, Guns at College, Gun Threats and Self-Defense Gun Use, Batters, Gun Carrying, Road Rage, Other Countries, Policy Evaluation, Public Health Approach, Public Opinion, Surveillance and Data Quality, Miscellaneous, and Overall.

RECENT PEER-REVIEWED PUBLICATIONS
A full list of HICRC journal publications (firearm and nonfirearm) organized by year is available under Publications. Journal articles specific to firearms research are also organized by topic— see the sub-menu.

FIREARMS RESEARCH DIGEST
In 2010 HICRC launched the Firearms Research Digest, an online database providing short summaries of academic research on firearms. The database is user-friendly and updated with additional years regularly.

******************************************************
In research studies you try to look at the change in variables that correlates with the change in observed result. The suicide rate for active duty soldiers has been approximately half of the suicide rate of the same age group in the general population. Since Obama took office and changed the rules of engagement, the suicide rate among active duty soldiers has nearly doubled and is now approaching the general population rate.

These soldiers have always had guns, they haven’t always had Obama and his silly rules of engagement. Change the variable that correlates with the increase in suicides in the military!

This is journ0lism in its worst form. They drone on for mumble-dee-blah lines while carefully failing to inform you about the rate of soldier suicide (number/thousand) and how it compares to the civilian rate for men and women of the same age.

Just presenting the raw numbers as they do appears to inform but fails. I thought I'd do the research myself but a cursory google search turned up nothing but pages and pages of more of the same. They have churned out so much garbage that they have clogged the channel. I can't help but think this is deliberate.

they didn’t note the rate, but usually the suicide rate for soldiers is about the same as young men in the same age group...it might be slightly higher, but not much higher. and a lot of the suicides are not combat related, but from personal problems.

Ironically, it is about the same rate as the suicide rate for female doctors. Of course, female doctors overdose, because most of them don’t shoot guns...

Annual overall US suicide rate is 12.0/100,000.

Japan's is 23.8/100,000 and guns are almost completely illegal in Japan.

It's worse than that. Treat the armed forces as a World Police Force, ignore reality, disregard their personal lives and move them about like pawns - that's the military. Instead of treating the underlying problems - foreign policies that don't serve America's interests, ROAs that encourage death and carnage among our troops, assignments that are never ending and serve the whim-of-the-day out of the State Department - they work to remove fundamental rights. That's the Left. They make a situation worse and then resolve by making it worse.

They cannot look at the evidence and say, “Gee, maybe my beliefs about this policy are wrong?” Instead it's “we didn't implement it right” or “we didn't spend enough” or “we had too many [few] troops [resources] [intelligence]”. The list never ends because the egomaniacs of the Left - the Gods Who Would Be - can never be wrong. They're the elite. It's the same groupthink that gets us hive mind Ivy Leaguers driving our economy to oblivion. They hate life and will destroy it if they cannot control it.

Military suicide is a lot more common than is being published.

We have a lot of broken men and women coming home, with no good method of treating them.
