U.S. military troops with severe psychological problems have been sent to Iraq or kept in combat, even when superiors have been aware of signs of mental illness, a newspaper reported for Sunday editions.

The Hartford Courant, citing records obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act and more than 100 interviews of families and military personnel, reported numerous cases in which the military failed to follow its own regulations in screening, treating and evacuating mentally unfit troops from Iraq.

Blimey,one minute they´re shooting at each other and the next they´re shooting themselves!

One in Five combat deaths are suicide!...............since when does suicide get listed as KIA,and anyway,their apparent sense of immortality displayed by sitting half-in half-out of turrets and cupolas could be classed as attemped suicide,and as for standing around waiting for the snipers to finish their ciggies............well!

Easy to sit here and judge I know,but sometimes I sit in front of the telly and think.............WTF are they up too! 8O
