    Question General orders his soldiers not to commit suicide after rash of deaths

    sincerely hope the Obama people can turn things around. The GOP truly broke our military. They're very good at waving the flag, Republicans are. Less good about actually following through. From CNN:


    The 101st Airborne's senior commander in effect ordered his soldiers Wednesday not to commit suicide, a plea that came after 11 suicides since January 1, two of them in the past week.

    An Army honor guard stands ready to fire a salute at Fort Campbell.

    "If you don't remember anything else I say in the next five or 10 minutes, remember this -- suicidal behavior in the 101st on Fort Campbell is bad," Brig. Gen. Stephen J. Townsend told his forces. "It's bad for soldiers, it's bad for families, bad for your units, bad for this division and our army and our country and it's got to stop now. Suicides on Fort Campbell have to stop now."

    Fort Campbell's suicide rate, the highest in the Army, "is not a good statistic," he said in remarks to one of four divisions he addressed during the day.

    As ridiculously obvious that what he's saying is true, maybe there was one person who heard him who decided not to do it after all.

    The news a few days ago said that about half of these suicides were from soldiers that deployed. The other half didn't deploy.

    I don't think this has been tried before. Might work!

    Gee, I can't kill myself because I might get in trouble afterwards.

    This general sounds like something out of MASH.
