The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is opening an investigation as PTSD and depression amongst veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq has increased by 3.1%.
Defence minister Tobias Ellwood announced the study amid an investigation by The Sunday Times, which has found that 42 current soldiers are believed to have killed themselves this year after suffering mental health problems after involvement in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Mr Ellwood said: 'Our armed forces do a magnificent job, and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to each man and woman who has laid their life on the line to keep our country safe' which of course is nonsense and was often repeated at the time as if Iraq and Afghanistan were on the brink of invading Britain.
Iraq was a tissue of lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction which as we knew even before it began never existed and Afghanistan was a war which was sold as removing the oppressive Taliban but they had earlier been made an offer that they would be left in power if they handed over Bin Laden.
Sympathy on a human level for anyone suffering PTSD or depression but only after the majority of the sympathy for the innocent Iraqi's and Afghan's and their families who have died or been maimed by the invading American and UK armies and now have to live with the result of the horrors of what our military's did to them over there for our lying politicians.
