In the last year 99 military personnel serving in Iraq have committed suicide.

"The primary reasons for suicides, when we examine the completed suicide, is failed intimate relationships, failed marriages," said Col. Elspeth Ritchie, a psychiatrist and consultant to the Army Surgeon General.

Brilliant analysis Elspeth.

Can't think of any other reason.

I also hear that, in addition to the 100 or so actual suicides (the number seems to vary) nearly a thousand have tried and failed. Most do it, however, after they come back home.
