Feb. 26 -- The emotional distress thousands of US occupation soldiers face when tasked with implementing the abhorrent foreign policies of their corrupt government is causing many to end their lives prematurely. New reports, released from the US Army and US Marine Corps, indicate a massive wave of suicides plaguing US occupation forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In January 2009 the US Army released statistical information indicating that 128 occupation soldiers killed themselves, the highest recorded number in US Army history. Dozens more deaths are being investigated as possible suicides. Last month alone saw more cases of soldiers dying from suicide than combat situations. While January saw 16 combat related deaths -- 24 resulted from successful suicide attempts.
Experts attribute stress resulting from repeated tours, low confidence in the value of their mission and an inability to cope with the horrors of the war as primary causes for dramatic increases in suicide rates.
