liquidpoo: Suicides have been pretty bad for some years now, both with the active troops and even the veterans after they get out. For some reason this issue get little attention, yet things like sexual assaults make headline news.


Yeah victims of violent rape have all the luck. If you were violently raped, you would be all, "this sucks," until your story hit the press, then you'd be all, "awesome, and best of all I'm stealing attention from suicides. Sweet!"

Suicide centers are needed. Just make it easy, so it doesn't involve a school or theater. If you want to feel better, we'll even charge you a small fee for your offing. Just get off this ride if you don't like it.

"Anyone DUMB ENOUGH.... to join the military...."
-Bill Hicks

Maybe a lot of effed-in-the-head people join the military? Maybe they'd be topping themselves no matter what job they chose?


99% of Bill Hicks' [so called] stand up comedy involved YELLING AT IMAGINARY people.

YELLING how his Libtard dove politics were so completely awesome, while his Libtard audience laughed along and mocked the imaginary Republicans that Bill was yelling at.

Fans of Left wing [so called] comedy are an xXtra special kind of self righteous twat.


I hope I've offended everyone.

We need to be told what to do by the same government that brought us to the point of bankruptcy today.

bakarocket: taurusowner: albertalaska: Soldiering is a gang of people killing armed and unarmed people. Indisputable. Unacceptable. How much self respect can you have when you are part of a murderous gang? Warriors and police do not act by virtue of bravery but act with the knowledge of being aided by the strength of their group. There is no bravery in a gang. I have no respect for them . Cowardice is the word I use to describe this behavior. Notice this fact : People never fight one on one without an audience. (unless they are drunk)

Too obvious. 2/10

Too clueless. -3/10

Soldiers are hired killers. This is fact. Some of us accept this. Some don't.

It doesn't mean they aren't sometimes necessary, but pretending they are more than murderers does everybody an injustice, and is probably related to the increase in suicides. When you tell people they are heroes and then order them to act like villains, you get a disconnect.


Oh, look, it's a baby troll. How adorable! Don't scare it, and somebody get a towel to wipe the drool off its bib.

queezyweezel: So you mean to tell me that when we have numerous advances in combat medicine we have more casualties than fatalities?  And that when you use the military as a police force for another country that it tends to demoralize the people that signed up to defend the US constitution?  I'll be damned....

Apparently those in charge are achieving their goals, otherwise, they'd quit.

Logically.

No?
