(Arrahmah.com) – According to a latest report released by US army surgeon general, reported by the mainstream media, last year 110,000 active duty U.S soldiers took prescribed antidepressants, narcotics, sedatives, antipsychotics and anti-anxiety drugs thus revealing the state of mind of the soldier of democracy engaged in war against Islam.
Two long running occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan with escalating levels of “combat stress” is stated to be the cause of psychological disorders without adding to it the mirage of a life that they lead with the guilt of killing millions of innocents haunting them.
As per the report nearly 8% of the active-duty Army is now on sedatives and more than 6% is on antidepressants — an eightfold increase since 2005. “We have never medicated our troops to the extent we are doing now…. And I don’t believe the current increase in suicides and homicides in the military is a coincidence,” said Bart Billings, a former military psychologist who hosts an annual conference on combat stress.
But the timing of the report raises questions, especially in the wake of a string of recent high profile leaks which expose the outrageous crimes of the crusaders in Afghanistan. The report appears to be seeking to instill in the readers a sense of sympathy for the “sick” or “overstressed” troops while nailing the crimes of the occupation on “combat stress” and “psychotropic drugs”.
A former Army paratrooper and now a high profile military defense layer James Culp said “for the Army and the Marines, using the drugs has become a wager that whatever problems occur will be isolated and containable”. He recently defended an Army private accused of murder, arguing that his mental illness was exacerbated by the antidepressant Zolosoft.
“What do you do when 30-80% of the people that you have in the military have gone on three or more deployments, and they are mentally worn out? What do you do when they can’t sleep? You make a calculated risk in prescribing these medications,” Culp said.
Typical behavior of a ‘sick’ soldier and his ‘trial’
U.S. Air Force pilot Patrick Burke’s day started in the cockpit of a B-1 bomber near the Persian Gulf and proceeded across nine time zones as he ferried the aircraft home to South Dakota.
Every four hours during the 19-hour flight, Burke swallowed a tablet of Dexedrine, the prescribed amphetamine known as “go pills.” After landing, he went out for dinner and drinks with a fellow crewman. They were driving back to Ellsworth Air Force Base when Burke began striking his friend in the head.
“Jack Bauer told me this was going to happen — you guys are trying to kidnap me!” he yelled, as if he were a character in the TV show “24.”
When the woman giving them a lift pulled the car over, Burke leaped on her and wrestled her to the ground. “Me and my platoon are looking for terrorists,” he told her before grabbing her keys, driving away and crashing into a guardrail.
Burke was charged with auto theft, drunk driving and two counts of assault. But in October, a court-martial judge found the young lieutenant not guilty “by reason of lack of mental responsibility” — the almost unprecedented equivalent, at least in modern-day military courts, of an insanity acquittal.
Last year, one of Culp’s clients, Army Pfc. David Lawrence, pleaded guilty at Ft. Carson, Colo., to the murder of a “Taliban commander” in Afghanistan. He was sentenced to only 12 1/2 years, later reduced to 10 years, after it was shown that he suffered from schizophrenic episodes that escalated after the death of a good friend, an Army chaplain.
Though the crimes of the crusaders continue under the blanket of PTSD, the reality is that the nervous breakdowns are due to the relentless onslaughts of the Mujahideen. The reality is that the Crusader coalition is losing against the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. And as pointed out time and again, those who take pride in rebellion of the Almighty and are raised on nights of sin, debauchery and imbibing of alcohol cannot persevere in war. In spite of inexhaustible resources, their hearts and minds fail them.
