Grim Milestone: US Soldier Suicides Outnumber Combat Deaths in 2012

Close call in “The Stan.”

Does it not enrage the reader that the mainstream media excoriated the Bush Administration for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and reported on it daily, while the MSM has virtually ignored the wars in Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq—not to mention drone strikes in Northwestern Pakistan, operations in the Horn of Africa, and the secret war in Yemen?

If it does not bother you … why? What the hell is your major malfunction?!? Maybe that’s part of the problem? Americans are in harm’s way; this is not a joke! Just sayin’!

For the past four years, Barack Hussein Obama has said practically nothing about our military involvement in Afghanistan. As a matter of fact, Obama’s response to our involvement in Afghanistan is “America demands answers.” That’s right! That’s a quote straight from the mouth of our president, as incredulous as it may be.

Are you kidding me, Mr. President? America demands answers? You’re the damn Commander-in-Chief! You’re in charge! You’re right, sir: America demands answers! What’s the strategy in Afghanistan? What’s your vision for the future, sir? Do you have one? Do you even even care … SIR?

Yeah, you’re right, Mr. President/MSM, America demands answers and you are apparently unwilling and unable to provide any whatsoever … keeping the American people in the dark seems to your modus operandi, King Obama et al.—while our own die, suffer and sacrifice.

CBS Local reported:

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – American soldier suicides continue to outnumber combat-related deaths in 2012, and the trajectory for soldier suicides continues to get worse.

Statistics released by the Department of the Army show that through November potentially 303 active-duty, Reserve and National Guard soldiers committed suicide. As of Dec. 7, Stars and Stripes reports that 212 soldiers have died in combat-related deaths in Afghanistan.

The Army set a grim new record of 177 potential active-duty cases with 2012 coming to a close on Tuesday – 64 of these cases remain under investigation, 113 have been confirmed.
