Female Soldiers More Likely to Be Raped than Killed in Action, Says Rep.

"A woman who signs up to protect her country is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire," said Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), who introduced a bill this summer to increase and encourage the investigation of prosecution of sexual assault and rape cases in the military and is attending today's hearing.

"You serve your country and then destroy your life because the guy in the next bunk or the next foxhole becomes a sexual predator," said Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) of the females who have been sexually assaulted or raped while serving the country. Harman is attending a House subcommittee meeting today that will shed new light on the problem of sexual assault in the military.

TVNL Comment: But they kick homosexuals out of the service.

Suicide Attempts for Vets Jump 500% in Five Years, and Government Ignores It

After five years of war in Iraq, Marine suicides doubled between 2006 and 2007, and Army suicides are at the highest level since records were first kept in 1980. Reported suicide attempts jumped 500 percent between 2002 and 2007

Fake Soldiers Used In RNC Video

It was a video that was supposed to elicit soaring patriotism and real emotions about the Pledge of Allegiance. But to do that, it used fake soldiers and a staged military funeral instead of the real thing.

There’s the Continental Congress…A real WWII vet…Photos of workers at Ground Zero. A close-up of a folded flag presented to a grieving widow at a military funeral… profiles of soldiers swelling with pride in slo-motion.

But CBS News found that the footage of the ‘funeral’ and soldiers is what is called ‘stock’ footage. The soldiers were actors and the funeral scene was from a one-day film shoot, produced in June. No real soldiers were used during production.

“What it does reveal is a serious lack of understanding and a lack of personal connection to the military,” said Paul Rieckhoff, Executive Director of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

Army: Soldier Suicide Rate May Set Record Again

Soldier suicides this year could surpass the record rate of last year, Army officials said Thursday, urging military leaders at all levels to redouble prevention efforts for a force strained by two wars.

As of the end of August, there were 62 confirmed suicides among active duty soldiers and Guard and Reserve troops called to active duty, officials said. Another 31 deaths appear to be suicides but are still being investigated.

Ecuador Giving U.S. Air Base the Boot

But the government of Ecuador has decided, and Washington has apparently agreed, that one of the most important foreign outposts in the United States' war on drugs will close. The 450 U.S. Air Force personnel and contractors stationed at a military base that shares the airport's runway will be leaving next year.

TVNL Comment: The Washington Post, for no reason other than to brainwash Americans, placed a photo of Chavez in this article. He had nothing to do with the story but they managed to weave him in with a negative twist. The article reads like a sequitur when it gets to the comments about Chavez. They also gave the story a negative headline even though the U.S. agreed to leave. They were not kicked out, as the title suggest. This is a perfect example of establishment media control and propaganda.

The jury took six hours to find Jose Luis Nazario Jr. not guilty of charges that he killed or caused others to kill four unarmed detainees on Nov. 9, 2004, in Fallujah, Iraq, during some of the fiercest fighting of the war.

Army Hopes Dropouts Can Fill Gaps

But the U.S. Army, eager to fill its ranks amid wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, doesn't see them as dropouts. They are recruits who only need a GED before they're ready to begin basic training.

And so, the Army formally opens its first prep school Wednesday.

TVNL Comment: Dropouts = America's heros.
