    Well, when you’re brain damaged by atrocities you and your fellow soldiers commit, you need medication… 😀

    If a soldier feels deeply that what they are doing is f**ked up, it is very poor judgement to prescribe a pill and send them back out. This is completely against the Hippocratic oath. It is very unusual for any sane person to willfully murder another. Drugs aren’t limited to ‘treating’ PTSD either. What doctor would argue for crap like this?

    And they don’t even follow their own policies:

    Pentagon Stays Silent on Whether Suspect in Afghan Massacre Took Controversial Anti-Malaria Drug

    It is strange ‘medicine’ to think that an anti-depressant makes the disease of war all better. No sympathetic or understanding doctor who follows their oath would in good conscience do so to further a policy of war.

    From the modern version of that oath:

    “I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”

    its clearly depression caused by guilty consciences. Killing for the NeoCon Death Cult hurts the brain and the soul.

    The obvious solution is Nerf guns.

    I bet that some authorities were paid big by Mama Pharma for allowing this. They should be prosecuted.

    Bring on the drones and robots as soon as possible, yes? Because dealing with humans for war is too costly for the war profiteers.

    Drugs and War have always gone together. Russians in the Napoleonic Wars would take a stiff shot of Vodka before a battle. WWII combatants took stimulants to ward off sleep and to add to combat endurance. Vietnam soldiers escaped by smoking Marijuana. The Taliban are on their martyr drug and the Muslim paradise pills.
    These soldiers have a high suicide rate once back home which is tragic. Moral is don’t join the military in a war your soul. mind and maybe your body will be destroyed killing your life forever. Leaving you a walking shell.

    Give me Librum or give me Meth.

    Bill: “The Taliban are on their martyr drug and the Muslim paradise pills.”

    At least the Taliban won’t experience any PTSD as the US troopers. They are convinced that they are doing god’s work. 😀

    Bruce:”dealing with humans for war is too costly for the war profiteers.”

    Sorry,but Big Pharma makes a lot of money out of selling drugs to the regime for treatment of these brain damaged soldiers, moreover the regime takes the money out of the tax payer’s pocket. Conclusion: humans for war is still profitable.

    Murder, torture, rape all about. Stuck in the desert, knowing you are being lied too. Surrounded by psychopaths. Wondering when your next toxic vaccine will come down the pike as you sit in the dust from the depleted uranium. I’m surprised more soldiers aren’t medicated. Then again they don’t really know what is in their food.

    The government doesn’t care if these guys die. In fact, they probably would prefer it. Yeah, let’s see some more “support our troops” ribbon stickers on those SUV’s. Idiots.

  9. SilverCondom says:

    … and the next president of the USSA will be a moron… err… I mean a mormon… 😉

    Of course. However, certain things lessen the bill of materials = more profit.

    Hard to believe, or imagine – an army of stoned, lobotomized jellyfish taking orders from infiltrators and traitors. Oh, yeah.

  12. trooper dave says:

    Like “on the bong” hashish Assassins and Thuggee the best soldier is a dope. Too stoned or stupid to question his orders. Kill, kill, kill! never stop to think why!

  13. Apocalypto says:

    Those troops are all potential terrorists. Didn’cha know?

  14. Apocalypto says:

    Homeland Security Classifies Returning US Veterans as Potential Terrorist Threat

    the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks

    Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities


  15. trooper dave says:

    On drugs. Pushed on your children by bigpharma, for profit.

  16. Apocalypto says:

    Pushed on everyone by bigpharma, for profit, not just children.

    @ maxkeiser & stacyherbert

    I did a follow up on the censored blogger in Carolina with Diabetes. Interviewed someone who knows this stuff.

    J.G says Type 2 diabetics can be cured type 1 cant there pancreas has no beta cells if they could cure it they would i always thought i was some sort of experiment cause i got perfect baby scores as being a perfect baby if i could get off insulin i would be so attentative to things she is right. To have no carbs you would die. The government subsidises our disease it costs them a fortune to keep us alive we live in a democratic country. To be insulin dependant means you need insulin to keep you from getting sick and sick without insulin is like torture all your organs tighten up and you can feel it its awefull. The less insulin you have the better you are and the less complications you have because your eating less high glicemac foods and exercise regulary to burn off energy. To eat like a pig is really unhealthy for everyone. Discipline is a problem more than anything in our country and many others.
