    I suspect psychotriopic drugs also play a major role in both military and civilian suicides (and perhaps the occasional homicide as well). A certain amount of people placed on psychotropic drugs become psychotic and act out in ways they never behaved before being medicated. I suspect that Big Pharma is trying to keep a lid on just how many people have died under the influence of these drugs.

  2. hmm, I think it could have been worthwhile if they had compared the suicide stats of active-duty soldiers with those of veterans. Would be interesting to see if there’s any significant difference or not.
    Also, doesn’t come as a surprise that traumatic brain injuries will result in more volatile behavior, but somehow govt responsibles were still baffled that sending men to high-stress, high-damage-exposure environments would lead to psychological repercussions.

    I’d like to see comparisons with suicide rates among WW II veterans, for both the Allied forces and the Axis powers.

    Since Basic Training involves profound psychological “re-orientation” it is no surprise that the returning veteran’s mindset will be very much at variance with what it should be.

    I have never served in any military capacity; but from what little I know on the matter, the training and field action involves a sublimation of your heart and spirit; a sublimation exacerbated when one takes a life or lives.

    The business of killing is a very ugly one; and though one can try to justify it as excusable since it takes place in a military context; that is one perspective that is not easily sold…especially to the returning veteran himself.

    I’d like to see a correlation of suicides with those pertaining to married men who have been [recently divorced] and particularly, cases concerning cuckoldry while said men have been deployed.

    As a military brat I am aware that many women are quite infamous for cheating on their husbands while away on deployment…and even not when away. The military makes no effort to defend men from this, and just like the rest of society incentivizes women’s actions, including child support and access to the male’s benefits.

    I also wonder how women’s predictable tendency to get pregnant when informed of deployment does to male’s morale. Honestly, the military is extremely feminized today more than ever in history (although one could argue the military has always operated on gynocentric principles) and its no surprise that men’s wellbeing and fatality rates coincide with that.

  9. disse:Vi uma coisa interessante aqui em Lisboa: uma vitrine de uma loja de lingerie com diferentes manequins, uns com o seio enorme, outros com o quadril grande, outros magrinhos e outros gordinhos. Achei uma ideia sensacional! Afinal, as pessoas são diferentes entre si! Que ideia esquisita essa de vender roupas para todos com manequins e catálogos só para gente muito magra…
