Look Michael, I’m not getting into a pissing contest with you. I simply quoted numbers supplied by the CNN article sent to me on the 2nd of Feb. You apparently are using an article published by Reddit. I quoted accurately and even clarified that further so no, I’m not mixing “apples and oranges”. If you cannot see that the Army is using the same numbers I did (325 suicides in 2012), then perhaps you might need to re-read the Army release or google the CNN article.
I came up with the 8008 number by multiplying the original posters’ comment and question (22 X 364). I don’t know what he read in the article or what was told to him. As far as I know, no one has mentioned the 8008 number other than me and I used it to show the original poster his understanding was incorrect.
What’s with your self-righteous crap? I simply posted two links that support the OP’s post (that had no links/sources). I hadn’t even seen any of your posts. But now having gone back and looked through - I really don’t get your point or purpose in posting on this thread - or your senseless attempts at defending your views.
Reddit? Not sure what that’s about. One link is to FoxNews, the other the NYSlimes.
I also fail to see why you are posting a response to me about “apples and oranges” as I posted nothing even remotely similar or related to that...
