HERE'S THE COUNTRY YOU ARE CELEBRATING TODAY. SUPPORTING THE TROOPS MEANS FORCING THEM INTO SUICIDE, DANGER AND YEARS OF PSTD AS THEY REALIZE THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR NOTHING BUT OUR GOVERNMENT'S CORRUPT AGENDA. USING MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN AS PAWNS IN THEIR DIRTY GAME TO ENRICH INTERNATIONAL CORPORATIONS--IT'S A AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE. AND ONCE THE SOLDIERS COME HOME, THE GOVERNMENT CUTS THEIR BENEFITS WHICH ARE ALREADY TOUGH TO GET NOWADAYS. CUTTING VETERANS' HEALTH BENEFITS IS ONE OF THE WAY OBAMA WANTED TO BALANCE THE BUDGET. YOU BREAK IT, YOU BUY IT. In Suicide Note, Iraq War Veteran Says He Was Forced to Participate In War Crimes "On June 10, 2013, 30-year-old Iraq War veteran Daniel Somers killed himself after writing a powerful letter to his family explaining his reasons for doing so. “My mind is a wasteland filled with visions of incredible horror, unceasing depression, and crippling anxiety, even with all of the medications the doctors dare give,” reads the letter, which Somers’ family allowed Gawker to publish. Somers went on to reveal the source of his pain: During my first deployment, I was made to participate in things, the enormity of which is hard to describe. War crimes, crimes against humanity. Though I did not participate willingly, and made what I thought was my best effort to stop these events, there are some things that a person simply can not come back from. I take some pride in that, actually, as to move on in life after being part of such a thing would be the mark of a sociopath in my mind. These things go far beyond what most are even aware of. To force me to do these things and then participate in the ensuing coverup is more than any government has the right to demand. Then, the same government has turned around and abandoned me. They offer no help, and actively block the pursuit of gaining outside help via their corrupt agents at the DEA." DANIEL SOMERS: "Is it any wonder then that the latest figures show 22 veterans killing themselves each day? That is more veterans than children killed at Sandy Hook, every single day. Where are the huge policy initiatives? Why isn’t the president standing with those families at the state of the union? Perhaps because we were not killed by a single lunatic, but rather by his own system of dehumanization, neglect, and indifference. It leaves us to where all we have to look forward to is constant pain, misery, poverty, and dishonor. I assure you that, when the numbers do finally drop, it will merely be because those who were pushed the farthest are all already dead. And for what? Bush’s religious lunacy? Cheney’s ever growing fortune and that of his corporate friends? Is this what we destroy lives for." Somers letter is a reminder that among the soldiers fighting US wars are good people who have been backed into a corner, forced to compromise their morals to fulfill the almost always nefarious operations necessary for American imperialism to flourish. And afterwards they are thrown away, ostracized for being weak and denied the medical care they desperately need to survive. Meanwhile, the people that sent Somers to war and ordered the war crimes that mentally destroyed him are living in comfort, working cushy jobs at universities and having libraries built in their honor.
