Slik gikk det da US Army spurte folk hva militærtjenesten hadde betydd for dem

US Army stilte spørsmål på Twitter: Hva har tjenesten gjort med deg? De kan ikke ha vært forberedt på hvor bitre svarene ville være. Illustrasjon: Krigsvetaran. Shutterstock.

US Army la ut en video med sikte på å verve nye soldater. På videoen var det en rekrutt som snakket inn i kameraet om hvordan militærtjenestene gjorde ham til «en bedre mann og en kriger». Og så stilte hærledelsen følgende spørsmål til leserne på Twitter:

Hvordan har tjenesten påvirket deg?

Det skulle de kanskje ikke gjort. For folk grep denne sjansen til å si sin hjertens mening begjærlig. De fortalte om hvordan de eller noen av deres kjære var blitt tygd og spyttet ut igjen av krigsmaskinen. De fortalte om lidelser og død, om smerter, sorg og elendighet. Caitlin Johnstone har samlet noen av disse meldingene og vi gjengir noen av dem. Og vær sikker: Det er veldig mye mer!

“Someone I loved joined right out of high school even though I begged him not to. Few months after his deployment ended, we reconnected. One night, he told me he loved me and then shot himself in the head. If you’re gonna prey on kids for imperialism, at least treat their PTSD.”

“After I came back from overseas I couldn’t go into large crowds without a few beers in me. I have nerve damage in my right ear that since I didn’t want to look weak after I came back I lied to the VA rep. My dad was exposed to agent orange which destroyed his lungs, heart, liver and pancreas and eventually killing him five years ago. He was 49, exposed at a post not Vietnam, and will never meet my daughter my nephew. I still drink to much and I crowds are ok most days but I have to grocery shop at night and can’t work days because there is to many ppl.”
~
“The dad of my best friend when I was in high school had served in the army. He struggled with untreated PTSD & severe depression for 30 years, never told his family. Christmas eve of 2010, he went to their shed to grab the presents & shot himself in the head. That was the first funeral I attended where I was actually told the cause of death & the reasons surrounding it. I went home from the service, did some asking around, & found that most of the funerals I’ve attended before have been caused by untreated health issues from serving.”
~
“My dad was drafted into war and was exposed to agent orange. I was born w multiple physical/neurological disabilities that are linked back to that chemical. And my dad became an alcoholic with ptsd and a side of bipolar disorder.”

“i met this guy named christian who served in iraq. he was cool, had his own place with a pole in the living room. always had lit parties. my best friend at the time started dating him so we spent a weekend at his crib. after a party, 6am, he took out his laptop. he started showing us some pics of his time in the army. pics with a bunch of dudes. smiling, laughing. it was cool. i was drunk and didn’t care. he started showing us pics of some little kids. after a while, his eyes went completely fucking dark. i was like man, dude’s high af. he very calmly explained to us that all of those kids were dead ‘but that’s what war was. dead kids and nothing to show for it but a military discount’. christian killed himself 2 months later.”
~
“I didn’t serve but my dad did. In Vietnam. It eventually killed him, slowly, over a couple of decades. When the doctors were trying to put in a pacemaker to maybe extend his life a couple of years, his organs were so fucked from the Agent Orange, they disintegrated to the touch. He died when I was ten. He never saw me graduate high school. He never saw me get my first job or buy my first car. He wasn’t there. But hey! Y’all finally paid out 30k after another vet took the VA to the Supreme Court, so. You know. It was cool for him.”
~
“Chronic pain with a 0% disability rating (despite medical discharge) so no benefits, and anger issues that I cope with by picking fistfights with strangers.”
~
“My parents both served in the US Army and what they got was PTSD for both of them along with anxiety issues. Whenever we go out in public and sit down somewhere my dad has to have his back up against the wall just to feel a measure of comfort that no one is going to sneak up on him and kill him and and walking up behind either of them without announcing that you’re there is most likely going to either get you punch in the face or choked out.”
~
“Many of my friends served. All are on heavy antidepressant/anxiety meds, can’t make it through 4th of July or NYE, and have all dealt with heavy substance abuse problems before and after discharge. And that’s on top of one crippled left hand, crushed vertebra, and GSWs.”
~
“Left my talented and young brother a broken and disabled man who barely leaves the house. Left my mother hypervigilant & terrified due to the amount of sexual assault & rape covered up and looked over by COs. Friend joined right out if HS, bullet left him paralyzed neck down.”
~
“My cousin went to war twice and came back with a drug addiction that killed him. My other cousin could never get paid on time and when he left they tried to withhold his pay.”
~
“It’s given me a fractured spine, TBI, combat PTSD, burn pit exposure, and a broken body with no hope of getting better. Not even medically retired for a fractured spine. WTF.”
~
“Y’all killed my father by failing to provide proper treatments after multiple tours.”
~
“Everyone I know got free PTSD and chemical exposure and a long engagement in their efforts to have the US pay up for college tuition. Several lives ruined. No one came out better. Thank god my recruiter got a DUI on his way to get me or I would be dead or worse right now.”
~
“I have ptsd and still wake up crying at night. Also have a messed up leg that I probably will have to deal with the rest of my life. Depression. Anger issues.”
~
“My grandfather came back from Vietnam with severe PTSD, tried to drown it in alcohol, beat my father so badly and so often he still flinches when touched 50 years later. And I grew up with an emotionally scarred father with PTSD issues of his own because of it. Good times.”
~
“Hmmm. Let’s see. I lost friends, have 38 inches of scars, PTSD and a janky arm and hand that don’t work.”
~
“my grandpa served in vietnam from when he was 18–25. he’s 70 now and every night he still has nightmares where he stands up tugging at the curtains or banging on the walls screaming at the top of his lungs for someone to help him. he refuses to talk about his time and when you mention anything about the war to him his face goes white and he has a panic attack. he cries almost every day and night and had to spend 10 years in a psychiatric facility for suicidal ideations from what he saw there.”
~
“My best friend joined the Army straight out of high school because his family was poor & he wanted a college education. He served his time & then some. Just as he was ready to retire he was sent to Iraq. You guys sent him back in a box. It destroyed his children.”

  1. Det er ikke rart at de sosiale media skremmer vannet av dem. NYPD gjorde samme erfaring.

  2. ‘‘War is a racket…’’ - Smedley Butler, US Army.

    Elitene sørger for å desinfisere fortellingene før de serveres massene – som på tilbørlig mental avstand betaler for galskapen. Om et barn mister livet innen samme avstand, melkes saken for alt den en verdt – i dagevis - da er det opplagstall som teller. Hykleriet kjenner overhodet ingen grense.

    Hva om dette var skjebnen til våre barn?:

    • Når skal vi innse at de som står bak krigene er mentalt ustabile…?

    Å være domfelt for å ha spyttet på en journalist, er noe jeg ikke ville hatt noe problem å leve med.

  4. Det er en grunn til at Gro og eliten får panikk og går over lik for å stoppe frie medier som Steigan, Resett osv.

  5. Og, rent personlig, er jeg stygt redd for at årsaken -

    (med en liten omskriving til norske forhold), simpelthen kan oppsummeres kort & konsist i [steindaue] G.H.W. Busk’s eklatante hjertesukk:

    • ’‘Om folket noengang skulle oppdage og forstå hva det er vi har gjort, ville vi blitt jaget igjennom gatene og lynsjet’’ . . . . .

  6. Bare folk med et hjerte av stein, kunne ha jaget den fremtoningen der, og nå er det game over , for han også.

    Jeg tror ikke det er annen råd enn å ta barna fra dem, før de blir som foreldrene sine.
    Legg merke til familie-dynamikken:

  7. Jøss … :open_mouth: Hun ble jo vettskremt da Aleister Crowley datter, Barbara Bush dukket opp.

    Og de som kjenner gjengen vet at hun har all grunn til å bli livredd med tanke på hva de holder på med i sine mørke slott og palasser.

    Noe som også er grunnen til at ikke en eneste MSM blekke eller journalist tørr å nevne det vanvittige maktmøtet som finner sted i Sveits nå.

    Ser Jared Kushner klatrer til topps … Snart Noahide lover da :slight_smile:

    Luke gir seg aldri, hvert år møter han opp og dekker super duper møtene og hvert år blir han arrestert og trakassert.

  8. Njaa, jeg føler meg ikke så sikker. Vi får se etter helga.
    Jeg hadde mitt første møte med Bilderberg, gjennom filmen Endgame, av Alex Jones.
    Det var i påsken 2008. Det året ble møtet avholdt i vest Virginia, like i nærheten av Washington DC, og de mest interessante deltakerne sto ikke på gjestelista.
    Da den helga var over, hadde Obama presidentkandidaturet i lomma.
