An endless war has taken its toll on the sanity of American troops. An alarming increase in suicide deaths among U.S. troops has occurred in recent years, new Pentagon figures show.
USA Today reported Thursday that 580 US soldiers died by suicide in 2020. The newspaper confirmed the new Pentagon statistics with Congressional and Defense Department sources before they were made public.
Some 504 U.S. soldiers committed suicide in 2019, according to USA Today. But in 2018, at least 543 American soldiers are said to have died by suicide.
The report noted that Alaska has been a site of several suicides, where six suicides occurred in the first five months of the year. USA Today reported that the military has spent more than $ 200 million in an attempt to improve the quality of life at its state bases.
A recent study found that more than 30,000 active duty personnel and veterans of wars launched in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, have died by suicide.
That number was almost thirty times the number of people who died in the September 11 attacks and about three times the number of U.S. servicemen killed in war operations after September 11.
Following the September 11 attacks, the United States, under the presidency of Republican George W. Bush, invaded and occupied Afghanistan, despite the fact that no Afghan was involved in the attacks. The occupation lasted 20 years. Hundreds of thousands of Afghans have died in the American war against the country.
U.S. officials say the 9/11 attacks were carried out by 19 Al Qaeda terrorists, but many independent experts and researchers have raised questions about the official record.
They believe rogue elements in the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to speed up the US war machine and move the agenda forward. Zionist.
Wesley Clark, the retired 4-star general of the United States Army and Supreme Allied Commander NATO during the 1999 war against Yugoslavia, said in the famous 2007 interview that the purpose of the attack on September 11 was to bring down the governments of seven countries in five years. These seven countries were Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Iran.
Clark’s interview serves as a reminder of the diabolical timeline of the American Empire’s hegemonic project. All these countries have been directly or indirectly the object of American aggression.
Iran has been the target of malicious intent by the United States, but the United States has failed to launch a war against it due to the Islamic Republic’s strong defense against global hegemony.
