Lets get one thing straight. I have respect for soldiers as they are trained to obey their orders by a system that has been created to manipulate their natural conscience and instinct to follow political views set out to them by people who of most have never stepped foot on a battlefield.
I posted this video not to spread hatred but to give a different view from someone who has both seen and returned home from the battlefields of the Middle East.
I believe and will continue to believe the war in Iraq is wrong. Soldiers are not to blame, however those in office/parliment are as they are the ones pulling the strings.
This video reveals a very real result of war. A war where a soldier is left to fight at home with his mind. Conscience of his/her actions can have devistating mental effects to which many suffer in their own homes to such a deep level that they feel the only way out is suicide.
I frequent many forums focusing on military discussion. These below are some comments of very real soldiers who have been to war and have thought another battle in the comfort of their very own homes.
"Two months ago I had my 40 caliber pistol to my head. I was drinking 750 ml of vodka and crown a night. My wife was so scared of me and what I had become, that she would either stay at my sisters, or sleep in the closet. Some big man I was. 2 months later I have been completely sober, on anti depressants, talk to a psychiatrist multiple times a week, spend every second I can holding my wife, and will never pick up my service weapon for this country for a long time."

"I am a clinical therapist a Mental Health Hospital and I am seeing more and more veterans showing up. It saddens me because of the damage that is done to them is so deep and so destructive.
I can never say I understand your pain as I will never be able to comprehend what you and your brothers are going through. All I can say is that the American Soldier is the most overlooked victim of this whole thing." The_Observer_85
"brother I have been seeing a psycholgist and psychiatrist for 6 years now. I was diagnosed with PTSD, GAD, and major depressive disorder. I was on 4 medications at first and now I'm on 2. Besides an occasional nightmare, which used to be " devildog_USMC
"I read your earlier thread, Marine. I'm so glad you found some people here that helped you. I hope you continue to heal. One of my dearest closest friends, who was like a little brother to me, never recovered from Iraq. He was 101st Airborne Division, Iron Rakkasans. He was both proud and horrified about having fought over there. He came home with 3 Purple Hearts. The medical and mental health care he received from the Army after he got back here was negligent at best, and he ended up an alcoholic and addicted to pain meds. He died of a massive stroke at 38 years old the day after Christmas two years ago. He left his wife, also a dear friend of mine, of just 3 years and their 2 year old son when he left this world."

These are people who have served. They have signed up willing to fight for their country. To protect and honour those who live in our borders. These people are very much HEROS neglected by our governments.
Iraq is illegal and the distress caused to our boys/girls is the biggest lie of them all IMO.
