Why are our American soldiers committing suicide?

Suicide Epidemic Among Veterans.

(CBS) They are the casualties of wars you don’t often hear about - soldiers who die of self-inflicted wounds. Little is known about the true scope of suicides among those who have served in the military.

But a five-month CBS News investigation discovered data that shows a startling rate of suicide, what some call a hidden epidemic, Chief Investigative Reporter Armen Keteyian reports exclusively.

“I just felt like this silent scream inside of me,” said Jessica Harrell, the sister of a soldier who took his own life.

"I opened up the door and there he was," recalled Mike Bowman, the father of an Army reservist.

"I saw the hose double looped around his neck,” said Kevin Lucey, another military father.

"He was gone,” said Mia Sagahon, whose soldier boyfriend committed suicide.

Keteyian spoke with the families of five former soldiers who each served in Iraq - only to die battling an enemy they could not conquer. Their loved ones are now speaking out in their names.

They survived the hell that's Iraq and then they come home only to lose their life.

Twenty-three-year-old Marine Reservist Jeff Lucey hanged himself with a garden hose in the cellar of this parents’ home - where his father, Kevin, found him.

"There's a crisis going on and people are just turning the other way,” Kevin Lucey said.

Kim and Mike Bowman’s son Tim was an Army reservist who patrolled one of the most dangerous places in Baghdad, known as Airport Road.

"His eyes when he came back were just dead. The light wasn't there anymore," Kim Bowman said.

Eight months later, on Thanksgiving Day, Tim shot himself. He was 23.

Diana Henderson’s son, Derek, served three tours of duty in Iraq. He died jumping off a bridge at 27.

"Going to that morgue and seeing my baby ... my life will never be the same," she said.

Beyond the individual loss, it turns out little information exists about how widespread suicides are among these who have served in the military. There have been some studies, but no one has ever counted the numbers nationwide.

"Nobody wants to tally it up in the form of a government total," Bowman said.

Why do the families think that is?

"Because they don't want the true numbers of casualties to really be known," Lucey said.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., is a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee.

"If you're just looking at the overall number of veterans themselves who've committed suicide, we have not been able to get the numbers,” Murray said.

Read this the other day:

"Similarly, there have been reports from US troops that bizarre, psychotic, aggressive behavior has been observed in individuals after taking Lariam, which is a fluorinated antimalarial."

Full article below.


Fluoride And Aggression
c. 2005 by Mary Sparrowdancer
By Mary Sparrowdancer

The United States is in the wake of yet another horrific school shooting - another shooting carried out by another boy reportedly taking a fluorinated pharmaceutical, Prozac. Another fluorinated drug, Luvox, was reportedly taken by one of the shooters in the Columbine tragedy. Similarly, there have been reports from US troops that bizarre, psychotic, aggressive behavior has been observed in individuals after taking Lariam, which is a fluorinated antimalarial. According to a January 2004 article in the Archives of Internal Medicine, cholesterol-lowering statins have now also been linked to aggressive, violent behavior. Lescol, Lipitor, Baycol and Crestor are all fluorinated. Baycol was removed from the market, following at least 31 known deaths from adverse symptoms. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Quite the opposite from America 's ongoing lack of awareness pertaining to fluorides, fluoride toxicity has been well-known, studied and well-documented in other countries for almost a century.

Andreas Schuld, who is the founder of Parents of Fluoride Poisoned Children headquartered in Canada , is considered by many at this time to be among the world's leading experts on fluorides. He states, "IG Farben chemists discovered that fluorides were potent anti-thyroid substances back in the 1930s." (6)

Following this discovery in Germany , thousands of patients in one clinic alone had their thyroid activity decreased through the administration of minute doses of fluoride compounds. One proven, effective method of administering this anti-thyroid medical treatment was by having the patients bathe in water dosed with minut amounts of fluoride compounds. (6)

While weight gain and obesity are perhaps among the more well-known and visible signs of thyroid dysfunction, there are other signs of thyroid crisis that are not as visible, and may not become apparent until the affected person reaches a "breaking point."

The "silent" signs of thyroid crisis can include profound behavioral changes, neurological problems, sleep and memory disturbances, dementia, psychoses, depression, lethargy or loss of initiative, increased cholesterol levels, and according to the Thyroid Foundation of Canada, "general intellectual deterioration." (7)

In addition, violent and uncharacteristic episodes of rage are reported with enough frequency that those suffering from one thyroid disorder, "Graves' disease," refer to this disturbing symptom as " Graves ' rage."

Sometimes accompanying the depression are feelings of emotional detachment and emotional numbness, both of which have been repeatedly described by, or attributed to the boys involved in the school shootings.

The number of citizens now suffering from thyroid problems in the US is nknown because many are thought to be undiagnosed at this time. In addition, most people do not realize that the above emotional and psychological symptoms might actually be signaling a thyroid malfunction.

According to information found on the website of the National Institutes of Health, two-thirds of US adults are now struggling with their weight. On the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a report stating that approximately two-thirds of the people in the US are being fluorinated via their drinking water. Also indicative of a national thyroid epidemic is the fact that Synthroid, a drug used to treat thyroid malfunction, is one of the most-prescribed drugs in the US . (8, 9, 10)

While many try to avoid drinking fluoridated water by purchasing bottled water, two-thirds of the population have no choice but to bathe in "water dosed with minute amounts of fluoride compounds" - the same method of delivery once used in Germany to decrease thyroid functioning.

The full effects of fluoride's dark side are not yet known in the United States , nor is it known yet if fluoride affects people differently according to their race and, therefore, skin color. Schuld states that research idicates tooth mottling or "dental fluorosis" is actually a sign of thyroid disorder, and that in at least one test conducted by the Bureau of Dental Health in New York , it was noted that the risk for fluorosis was greater in African-American children than in whites. (11)

Perhaps the ongoing occurrences of rage and other unexplained, bizarre behaviors in the US, as well as the numerous epidemics now plaguing us, are, in fact, all related to the fact that two-thirds of our population is being dosed on a daily basis with a known thyroid toxin, at an unknown dose. Poison the thyroid, and the entire body as well as the mind will be affected.

The continued dosing of US waters as well as pharmaceutical products with fluoride compounds without full inquiry into fluoride's effects on mental capacity - especially in children - amounts to reckless endangerment.

Drink, bath, and brush your teeth with it.
Fluroide, the greatest thing since sliced bread.

i was just the other day trying to join the military , all the while knowing that i might have to "sell my soul" in order to be sucsessful in it..........i think these guys may be dying of guilt our government forces our military to participate in attrocities in order to secure their ensured compliance.............and i think that is unforgivable on the part of the leaders of big government
