If You Are Mentally Ill, A Drunk Or A Drug Addict, The Army Wants YOU!

 

And no, this is not fake news. I only wish it were.

Army Now Accepting Recruits With Serious Mental Illness!

WASHINGTON – People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year’s goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

What the fuck??!!! Because the Army is having problems meeting recruitment goals, the Army has now lowered its standards even further to include those who self-mutilate, are bi-polar, suffer from depression and abuse drugs and alcohol. So, I guess Army recruitment centers will now be set up in mental health clinics all across the United States. Army recruitment centers will be set up where Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are held. Army recruitment centers will now be set up where Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held and where folks line up to get their methadone.

But according to the Veterans Administration, 20 veterans commit suicide a day. In 2014, the latest year available, more than 7,400 veterans took their own lives, accounting for 18 percent of all suicides in America and this occurred BEFORE this new ban was lifted and so this will add to those who take their own lives since they’ll already be mentally ill or be vulnerable to mental illness and suicide BEFORE they’re ever sent through basic training.

The whole world should be laughing at US because what most of us have been saying all along has now been proven; the fact that we have a military that is so useless, it is laughable. No wonder every military action undertaken by the U.S. has failed in recent decades and continues to this very day. The U.S. military couldn’t effectively round up ants at an ant farm because the U.S. military is filled with an inept bunch of drug-addicted, mentally ill, suicidal rejects from grade school and the situation is about to get worse AND how!

There is no way in hell that I would join the military and expect some self-mutilating, depressed and/or bi-polar, drug addicted alcoholic to watch my back. I’d be more concerned with what was going on behind me in the ranks of my so-called fellow soldiers than I’d be concerned with a ‘foreign’ enemy I was facing. If I said that I was appalled, I would be lying because this does not surprise me; not in the least. I have been saying for quite some time and in no uncertain terms that our military is as ill-prepared to fight and win a war as new born babies are.

So, go ahead! Sign on the dotted line and when you’re killed, it will not be because some foreign terrorist sent you to meet your maker, it’ll be because one of your fellow soldiers, who was already screwed up in the head, went berserk and murdered his entire outfit and then turned his gun on himself because in the heat of battle, he forgot to take his psych meds. And for those who are drug addicts and are sent over to Afghanistan to guard opium…..uh….excuse me a minute, willya while I get up off the floor over laughing at that one! A heroin addict is supposed to stand guard over a poppy field and not go nuts for that opium? Are they fucking serious??!!! LMAO!!

I literally find this all quite laughable because there is no way in hell that with this shit coming down the pike, that I would suit up and head to foreign lands to be backed up by essentially, the blind, the crippled and most definitely, the crazy! Join the army? Indeed! But know this, don’t act as though you weren’t warned because even though the Army has been keeping this on the down low, do yourself a favor and research “Army lifts ban recruits of people with a history of self-mutilation, bi-polar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse!” And if you don’t have a problem with someone sitting behind you taking a razor blade to their arms while you’re in a warzone, sign up. If you don’t have a problem with someone going through such a serious bout of depression as to be thoroughly useless in a warzone, sign up. If you have no problem with a drunk, shaking so bad because he can’t get to some booze and he’s holding a gun pointed at you, sign up. If you have no problem with a person who is a recovering heroin addict, guarding poppy plants beside you in Afghanistan, sign up. And good luck with that! DAYUM! I just cannot stop laughing because you are SO dead! But do you really think that those who put this all into play are going to be standing right beside you with folks such as these? Hell no! They’ll be safe in their beds while you’re sitting somewhere hoping that the guy next to you is not a heroin addict, is not into self-mutilation, is not suffering from a bout of severe depression today. But as they say, “Keep hope alive, that is…until YOU’RE not thanks to the depressed dude who went off his psych meds while in the middle of a warzone!

    • They’ve not convinced me their lies are truth and I have been hell bent on trying to get the rest of the world up to speed on just how deranged our military leaders and their followers are. And this latest mess to come down the pike just takes the cake and then some. Instead of being perceived as the ‘world’s police’, we should be the laughing stock of this entire planet by now. I don’t know what it will take for the rest of the world to wake up to the fact that we are nothing, militarily…useless….and should not be feared, but would be easily conquered if the rest of the world would only get on with waking up to this fact.

      Gospel Isosceles, I thank you most sincerely for your comment.

  1. Besides the senseless exploitation of the mentally ill (I predict at least half of them will become psychotic or kill themselves during the US military’s barbaric basic training), this policy only further erodes the current global image of the America’s armed forces as being poorly trained and incompetent. Where is Monty Python when you need them?

    • Dr. Bramhall, you’ve said a mouthful. The Pentagon via the U.S. military has already exploited the poverty-stricken by seeing to it that those who are trying to escape poverty enlist in the military so they and their families won’t starve or become homeless and now we have them exploiting an extremely vulnerable population of people; those who are mentally ill and close to suicidal, those who are drug addicts in recovery and recovering alcoholics, not to mention, undercover alcoholics and drug addicts who have gone in and out of rehab. No one knows what these peoples real situations are and yet the Army proposes that they be put in combat situations, that someone be dependent on these people to have their back when these people don’t even have their own back. This is unconscionable!

      How these people sleep at night that initiate and approve this train wreck, I don’t know. They cannot have a heart because they don’t care about any person that they claim to “thank for their service” when they can send them into battle so ill-prepared and know it. What will it take to wake people up to what they are allowing to be done to them? I don’t know but the writing is all over the wall. For the love of !!!!

      Dr. Bramhall, I thank you for your comment.

    • Indeed you did, Kelley! As you can see, those who are in the military are in for an even worse time than ever before. Things are only going to get worse at this point. And if the Army cannot fill their quota with the mentally ill, the drug addicted and the drunks, why the next step will be to initiate the Draft because we just refuse to stop finding someone to wage war against even though our ‘troop’s are so fucked up, it’s ridiculous!

      Kelley, I thank you for your comment.

      • Quite actually, I would love to know just what it is we are “fighting” for. Why is our military in Iraq? Why are they in Syria? Why are they in Afghanistan? What has any of those countries done to anyone in the United States that was so bad, the U.S. military has set up camp there? There is NOT one good reason for any U.S. military personnel to be in any one of those countries. There is not one reason for any U.S. military personnel to be in Niger. We are simply in these places because there is no one to stop US. But would the U.S. stand for it if any military from another nation came here and set up shop? Absolutely not! But it is quite right that we should do so! No, it’s not and why the rest of the world stands for this, I’ll never know!

      • Yea I don’t get it. I mean I do; it’s clearly about control. This whole system goes full circle to fuel the dependency on drugs and other resources that keep the rich rich. But people are not willing to dig deep and see the root of the matter. It’s always been about money to be made from resources and control over those resources. I just don’t get how other people don’t see it.

  2. Military won’t initiate a draft because of shortages of drunks/mentally ill. They’ll do it because China’s military is growing and thanks to Donald Trump the US is losing its foothold as a superpower. It’s projected that in the next decade or so China will have a more powerful military than the US, that will strike talks to reintroduce the draft. The military is bad and no one should serve in it for any reason.

    • I sincerely believe that eventually a draft is coming because the U.S. has already reached beyond the point of desperation. And add to that the fact that we’ve stationed soldiers all over the world in 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad. No other country, nation or territory on this planet has done this and there is no real and serious reason or need for the U.S. to have done this.

      And quite frankly, anyone who joins the military has to be crazy and I have family members in the military and I am speaking of them as well. And if there ever was to be a draft, I state it here and now, that I would damn sure as hell become a draft dodger! Fight in defense of this racist shithole? Not bloody likely!

      Marcus, thank you for your comment.
