ARMY SUICIDE RATES HIGHEST SINCE '93.
Is it any wonder their hopelessness reaches such levels that they feel their only escape is through death? In spite of the military's brainwashing, some have become aware of the truth and have lost faith in the rightness of Bush's "cause" in Iraq.
They are subjected to constant, unending and unrelenting knowledge of imminent, gruesome death from an enemy they cannot see, cannot identify, cannot face; they are subjected to sights no one should have to see - other human beings literally blown into scattered pieces of flesh, bone, intestines, brains. They see piles of corpses bloated, covered with flies and maggots, emitting an unbelievable stench.
They see hatred in the faces of people they thought would welcome them as liberators. Is it any wonder they feel trapped in a hopeless situation? Even when their time is up they know Bush can send them back for a second and a third tour of duty.
