Suicides of U.S. Troops Rising in Iraq

At least 21 U.S. troops have committed suicide in Iraq, a growing toll that represents one of every seven American "non-hostile" deaths since the war began last March, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

"Fighting this kind of war is clearly going to be stressful for some people," Assistant Defense Secretary for Health Affairs Dr. William Winkenwerder told reporters in an interview.

Ya, but for the petrochemical-funded chickenhawks running the war, its a pretty low-pressure affair.
