The Pentagon will be releasing a report tomorrow detailing the increased suicide rate amongst troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The report, obtained by The Associated Press ahead of its scheduled release Thursday, found there were 99 confirmed suicides among active duty soldiers during 2006, up from 88 the previous year and the highest since the 102 suicides in 1991.
“Iraq was the most common deployment location for both (suicides) and attempts,” the report said.
To the minority that still support this occupation I ask – HOW DID YOUR MAGNET SUPPORT THE TROOPS? We have to fight for these kids. We cannot continue to sit idly by while they suffer in Iraq. The quagmire in Iraq IS NOT what they signed up for! Write your US representatives.
