    So far no country has ever crashed because of chinese investments, but plenty thru anglo american financial interests, correct me if I am wrong about it.


Actually, that would take a bit more consideration since China hasn't been investing
heavily in countries long enough to make their investments pay off or bring long term
stability to any country. That remains to be seen.

U.S. military veteran suicides rise, one dies every 65 minutes

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The most extensive study yet by the U.S. government on suicide among military veterans shows more veterans are killing themselves than previously thought, with 22 deaths a day - or one every 65 minutes, on average. The study released on Friday by the Department of Veterans Affairs covered suicides from 1999 to 2010 and compared with a previous, less precise VA estimate that there were roughly 18 veteran deaths a day in the United States. More than 69 percent of veteran suicides were among individuals aged 50 years or older, the VA reported. "This data provides a fuller, more accurate, and sadly, an even more alarming picture of veteran suicide rates," said Democratic Senator Patty Murray of Washington state, who has championed legislation to strengthen mental health care for veterans. The news came two weeks after the U.S. military acknowledged that suicides hit a record in 2012, outpacing combat deaths, with 349 active-duty suicides - almost one a day. That was despite sharper focus at the leadership level at the Pentagon and VA on the suicide problem, and came during an overall rise in suicides in the United States. The number of suicides in the United States rose 11 percent from 2007 to 2010, the VA said. The VA did not provide raw data and acknowledged its national figures were still estimates. The new study was based on data collected from 21 states in which military status is reported on the death certificate. It said more data from more states were being processed. Reuters last year obtained less-detailed data for the 2005-to-2010 period from 32 states, also showing a significant rise in the number of suicides among the country's 23 million veterans. The VA said that while the number of veteran suicides had risen, the percentage of all suicides in America identified as "veteran" declined from 1999 to 2003 and had remained relatively constant in recent years. The VA said the data would help it better identify where at-risk veterans may be located and improve targeting of specific suicide intervention and outreach activities. "We have more work to do and we will use this data to continue to strengthen our suicide prevention efforts," Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said in a statement.

re: U.S. Military members and veterans self-destructing

If those statistics are at all accurate that would average out to 8,030 suicides a
year.

A culture of death is an under statement while considering the worship of guns in
American culture (there is no culture really). War veterans return from Afghanistan
and Iraq (the recently murdered American military sniper Chris Kyle) and
because there is no employment available, go into security related "careers" selling
their military experience in security and with guns. Is there not something perverse
about this idea?

According to The Army Times website, the figure is 18 vets commit suicide every day. If I were allowed to provide a possible solution, I'd suggest an end to warfare, but that would appear sane and thoughtful.

18 veterans commit suicide each day

By Rick Maze - Staff writer
Posted : Thursday Apr 22, 2010 14:56:43 EDT
Troubling new data show there are an average of 950 suicide attempts each month by veterans who are receiving some type of treatment from the Veterans Affairs Department.

Seven percent of the attempts are successful, and 11 percent of those who don’t succeed on the first attempt try again within nine months.

The numbers, which come at a time when VA is strengthening its suicide prevention programs, show about 18 veteran suicides a day, about five by veterans who are receiving VA care.

Access to care appears to be a key factor, officials said, noting that once a veteran is inside the VA care program, screening programs are in place to identify those with problems, and special efforts are made to track those considered at high risk, such as monitoring whether they are keeping appointments.

A key part of the new data shows the suicide rate is lower for veterans aged 18 to 29 who are using VA health care services than those who are not. That leads VA officials to believe that about 250 lives have been saved each year as a result of VA treatment.

VA’s suicide hotline has been receiving about 10,000 calls a month from current and former service members. The number is 1-800-273-8255. Service members and veterans should push 1 for veterans’ services.

Dr. Janet Kemp, VA’s national suicide prevention coordinator, credits the hotline with rescuing 7,000 veterans who were in the act of suicide — in addition to referrals, counseling and other help.

Suicide attempts by Iraq and Afghanistan veterans remains a key area of concern. In fiscal 2009, which ended Sept. 30, there were 1,621 suicide attempts by men and 247 by women who served in Iraq or Afghanistan, with 94 men and four women dying.

In general, VA officials said, women attempt suicide more often, but men are more likely to succeed in the attempt, mainly because women use less lethal and less violent means while men are more likely to use firearms.

Suicide attempts among veterans appear to follow those trends, officials said.

Random thought...I wonder if Denmark has an "Army Times?"

re: this thread for WWIII speculation

Britain just announced it will redirect billions in British Pounds from humanitarian aid
into military spending for the British Army.

    UK may divert billions in foreign aid to military


Then, France invades Mali to reconquer their colony for resources, and it is now
alleged, to showcase France's newest fighter jet the Rafale being used extensively in
Mali to bomb mud hut dwellers and peasants armed with pitch forks.

The reason for demonstrating the Rafale's capability to India because France is about
to finalize what is reputedly the biggest military aviation deal in history, centered on
the Rafale.

Economic sanctions against Iran continue. Eventually there will be confrontation
between Israel and Iran as the proxy war against Syria being fueled by Israel
to a large extent continues to grind on.

re: the constantly threatening posture of the U.S. re: Israel

The threats keep coming. This time with President Obama threatening bombing
Iran in June. The Israelis are "reporting" this. What are Americans reporting or
does Israel decide "American foreign policy?"

Quote: "A window of opportunity will open in June."

Again, Iran and the nuclear weapon threat. That's posturing for war.

re: as always the UK posturing for war against Iran

The never ending cycle of the nuclear bomb threat being developed by Iran.

Always posturing for war against Iran.

    Iran's 'Plan B' for a nuclear bomb

    [Feb. 26, 2013] Iran is developing a second path [second path? according to who?] to a nuclear weapons capability by operating a plant that could ["could" is posturing] produce plutonium, satellite images show for the first time. [where are the satellite images? can I see them please? first time? really?]

    The Telegraph can disclose details [details? this is called "details" after reading the article? you're joking right?] of activity at a heavily-guarded Iranian facility from which international inspectors have been barred [and the Israelis bar all outside inspections of the Negev Nuclear Research Center outside Dimona and this is acceptable?] for 18 months. The images, taken earlier this month, show that Iran has activated the Arak heavy-water production [it was the British that delivered to Israel that country's nuclear capability with heavy-water production technology] plant. Heavy water is needed to operate a nuclear reactor that can ["can" is posturing] produce plutonium, which could then be used to make a bomb. The images show signs of activity at the Arak plant, including a cloud of steam that indicates heavy-water production. [really, how does the non-technical layman know this? do we just go on the Telegraph's word?]


Building the "evidence" at Arak. And American, Russian and Israel facilitates are not as
heavily defended? So, Iran protects sensitive facilities against potential attack and this
is somehow an untenable situation?

Arak is the same location mentioned above in the hyper-linked Telegraph article.

This has appeared elsewhere over the months but shows up again. Constant political

on scratching their heads wondering to themselves when the green toggle switches
get pulled on the consoles for the missiles?

re: here's a real treat: Vice President Joseph Biden threatening everyone

Apparently, the "president is not bluffing?" Bluffing? About what? A war on Iran?

March 4, 2013.

Notice the morale high ground: "Our desire is for diplomatic solution...." Diplomatic
solution? Does "diplomatic solution" also include American military personnel and
American mercenaries in Jordan training foreign Jihadi terrorist mercenaries to
destabilize Syria ultimately to bring Iran down?

Looks like a "window is closing." Window? And if that "window" does close then
what? War?

Biden states: "Thee is still time and space to achieve the outcome..." Outcome? And
what might that be? Why does Joe Biden allegedly speaking for Americans - he
doesn't - make declarations against Iran in this double speak language?

Biden is threatening Iran and posturing for conflict always using the morale high
ground. This trait in their speech is like clock work.



This is entertaining. It is almost absurdly comical. Like watching Saturday Night Live.
