    Sad to see that some think it's funny when US troops commit suicides. Did you know that amount of soldiers who committed suicide in Afghanistan is 50% higher than casualties during fights with Taliban? My buddy, his name was Jack, killed himself after weeks of deep depression caused by the Command. They ordered to kill Taliban militants and then soldiers who risked their lives became scapegoats for supposedly killing civilians, or sometimes big shots have negotiations with Taliban and prohibit return fire and respond to Taliban provocations. And drugs, guarding opium fields can drive everyone crazy because our troops came to Afghanistan with a mission to bring peace and democracy, but they forced to do nasty things... and tempers get frayed... Troops see their country betrayed them and the only thing they can do in action area is put a bullet in the head...

    yeap it should have been done in ONE year and then we left the middle east.

    Instead Bush went to Iraq on lies for oil profits leaving this country to fester with minimal troops.


    Im so glad we are leaving this country soon so this decade long mess will be over.

    No more cowboy foriegn policy EVER

    How much oil profits did we get from Iraq. And please link your sources.

    Oh and if Bush went to war on lies he did say with the blessing of a democratic congress.

    I really don't plan on youresponsding because you are one of, if not THE, biggest coward in this forum.

    The fact the the Democrats went along with it makes them reprehensible, true, but it does nothing to absolve 'W' & Co.

    The report did not include the break down by Military Occupational Specialty.

    Would the relationship between Combat MOS's and suicides be the highest rates?

    One would expect so. Since the Air Force would have the lowest number of Combat MOS's, the question needs to be answered.

    These suicides are provoked by forlornness of the Afghan war. Soldiers kill Taliban militants, but then they come in bigger numbers. That would drag anyone into depression that ends with the last breath. US government and command are responsible for that, because we shouldn't go to Afghan. Two major reasons are control of drug traffic and arms sale. Yes, war is great way to make money, blood money. And our soldiers gave away their lives or were forced to commit suicide so big shots from Washington could line their pockets. Looking for an enemy is just distraction from inner American problems which state-mongers don't want to solve because then they will loose their dirty profits... That's why the dark trend will grow worse... nobody is going to leave Afghanistan...

    If we had not stayed in Afganistan then OBL would not have been found.


    we found him in Packistan becasue he could NOT safely hide in Afganistan.

    THis would NEVER have been solved in the mind of Americans if OBL was NOT dead.


    EVERYONE Bush and team LIED to about the Iraq war are NOT responsible for the lies they were told.

    The suicides are partly because the troops are tied up in a complicated web of rules and regulations preventing them from carrying out their missions. They are partly because there is a concentrated effort to eliminate the most qualified from combat and put in the most successfully feminized.
