Iraq Forever!

Every day, five U.S. soldiers try to kill themselves. Before the Iraq war began, that figure was less than one suicide attempt a day.

The dramatic increase is revealed in new U.S. Army figures, which show 2,100 soldiers tried to commit suicide in 2007.
I can't imagine why... surely an unending war with no clear victory plan, a backdoor draft whereby you're never released, and watching your marriage disintegrate while you slowly sink into financial ruin (especially for the called up reservists) must be so uplifting.

Oh, and about those stateside reservists who we're counting on in the event of an onshore terror attack... might be nice if we adequately trained them.
