Our U.S. Military: Betrayed and Drugged

“Psychiatrists under contract with the Veteran Affairs—in my opinion—are legal drug dealers who almost took my life.”
– Former Marine Scout Sniper

Chad was a Marine Scout Sniper who served two tours in Iraq. Upon being honorably discharged as a Sgt. in 2007, he summoned the courage to ask for help in dealing with the images and emotions that gnawed on him from being dropped into combat. Like so many of his peers, the help he was given was  “meds.” Although Chad was used to putting his life at risk, he never expected that his life would be more directly threatened by the “treatment” he was offered—psychiatric drugs.

Drugs and Suicides in the Armed Forces

“POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER” PATHOLOGIZING TRAGEDY AND WAR TO SELL DRUGS

Drugs and Suicides in the Armed Forces

Bruce E. Levine, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and author of Surviving America’s Depression Epidemic, said that in February 2009, “Americans heard about a dramatic rise in suicides among U.S. soldiers.” Army statistics, which include the Army Reserve and the National Guard, confirmed 128 suicides (with 15 more deaths under investigation).  Suicides for the Marines also increased, with 41 in 2008, up from 33 in 2007 and 25 in 2006.

In an article published by Best Syndication News on April 17, 2009, suicides among Iraq war soldiers were reported to be twice that of other wars.

The number of soldiers who committed suicide during January 2009 actually surpassed the number of soldiers who were killed in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan during the same time period, the article said.

One of the suggested reasons for the high suicide rate is that with so many troops being labeled with “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” (PTSD), many of them are prescribed drugs that didn’t exist during other wars, especially antidepressants known to cause suicidal thoughts and feelings.

Hey I just saw my good friend Sean was just put on the main Church of Scientology site. Its a short candid video of him at home w/ his wife and pugs. I guess it just proves that these are everyday real people, on this site and proud to call themselves Scientologists. watch video

It’s great that they just put random people like you or me on the site and let them explain, in their own words, what Scientology means to them.

Let me know what you think…:)

WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY?

Scientology is a religion in its highest meaning, as it helps bring man to total freedom and truth.

The essential tenets of Scientology are these:

You are an immortal spiritual being. Your experience extends well beyond a single lifetime. And your capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized.

Furthermore, man is basically good. He is seeking to survive. And his survival depends upon himself and his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.

Have you ever wondered why more and more people are being prescribed psychiatric medications for disorders?

April 19, 2008 Leave a comment

Where did these disorders come from? Did they always exist and we never had a way to deal with them in the past? Are they something new as a result of something about our current lifestyles? Is it just a new way to make money? Is it a legalization of drugs that somehow slipped into the medical profession? Is there any validity to taking drugs for your problems or are you masking your problems? Are legal drugs fine to take because they make you feel better? What’s the difference between legal drugs and illegal drugs? Are there any long term negative effects from taking psychotropic medication? Why did Americans pay $11.9 billion for antidepressants, just in the U.S., in 2007? Are there other solutions to taking antidepressants that we don’t even know about? Is it a secret that a placebo is more effective in treating bipolar disorder than an antidepressant? And does that mean that because 20 percent of all antidepressant sales are to treat bipolar disorder that billions of American dollars are spent needlessly? Do people that have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder know how effective antidepressants are to treat it? Does the medical profession accurately explain the side effects of antidepressants for new patients? Do psychiatrists have any other solution for their patients other than prescribing psychiatric medication? Are your “problems” somebody else’s profit? Are consumers really being protected by the medical profession? Are medical students taught anything else but to prescribe drugs? Are there alternate methods for treating “disorders”? Taking psychotropics drugs must work or there wouldn’t be so many people taking it, right? Than why can’t any psychiatrist say they’ve ever cured anyone?

Is it all just a big marketing campaign?

Watch the video, where psychiatrists, themselves admit their “profession” is a fraud. And there is no validity to their diagnosis.
