Army turns on its self

The pressures must be great being an American soldier in the criminal actions in Afghanistan. Army life is brutal, America is a brutal place so its troops must have been through a cruel desensitising brutalisation. How else to explain the GI who went on a rampage and killed five other US soldiers in Iraq? The event has been oblitarated in the MSM, with (for them) good reason.

Over at - "This outburst of violence was by no means an aberration. Suicide rates among active duty military personnel are at a record high, with 230 killing themselves last year and more US soldiers taking their own lives in January than were killed in combat."
