  • U.S. troops are being forced to take drugs like Prozac and Seroquel for anxiety and depression.
  • Troops cannot refuse to take the drugs without consequences from their superiors.
  • Resistance by U.S. troops to their orders is also running high.
  • Some U.S. military patrols decline to carry out their "search and kill" missions and, instead, return to their bases claiming they carried out their orders.
  • Another neo-con outrage: Pentagon forcing U.S. soldiers and Marines in Iraq to take Prozac and other drugs for anxiety and depression.

  • Incidents of suicide among U.S. troops in Iraq is also reaching troubling levels.
  • There are also reports of defections by U.S. troops to neighboring Turkey, Iran, and Syria, where they can get passage to Europe and Russia.

  • Incidents of fighting between regular U.S. military personnel and private military contractors, who wear uniforms similar to those worn by regular U.S. soldiers and Marines, is also increasing.
  • U.S. troops are frustrated that they come under attack for atrocities carried out by private contractors who receive triple and quadruple the salaries U.S. military personnel receive.
  • This situation has created a tinderbox between U.S. troops and private contractors.

Visit for more information on the plight of our troops in Iraq and veterans of the quagmire into which the neo-cons have plunged our military.
