Army of US soldiers moves to place themselves on welfare gravy train forever

Associated Press reports… ‘America’s newest veterans are filing for disability benefits at a historic rate, claiming to be the most medically and mentally troubled generation of former troops the nation has ever seen.’

The AP report continues…

‘A staggering 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. That is more than double the estimate of 21 percent who filed such claims after the Gulf War in the early 1990s, top government officials told The Associated Press. What’s more, these new veterans are claiming eight to nine ailments on average, and the most recent ones over the last year are claiming 11 to 14. By comparison, Vietnam veterans are currently receiving compensation for fewer than four, on average, and those from World War II and Korea, just two.’

Boo-hoo-hoo. Our ‘heroes’ in uniform want the civilian portion of the population to support them forever! See full article at AP IMPACT: Almost half of new vets seek disability

We have no desire to see the truly disabled American vet denied their needed government assistance, but this move in mass by soldiers to put themselves on permanent welfare is truly an appalling fraud. Jobs, NOT WELFARE for us all!

(Notice to all of you out there who want to scream that we at NMT are being ‘anti-soldier’… This AP report is based on the Pentagon’s own reports that its soldiers are trying to dessert and DESERT the military for disability benefits instead of staying and continuing to fight the corporate politicians’ wars.)

Neocons push for Iran war as US National Intelligence Director, Dennis Blair, calls them liars

Dennis BlairIran ‘has no bomb-grade uranium’ says the US NI Director, Dennis Blair, to Congress. Oops…. The Barack Obama Administration sure knows how to talk out of both sides of its mouth at one time! Well which is it? WOMD Lie Time once again, or is it Peace Talk Way we’ll be strolling down?

A huge military-industrial-governmental complex needs to know which? They’re hardly ‘inquiring minds’ but their jobs hang on the decision and jobs are hard to get these days. More war, or time out?
