Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

And yet, future wars will receive trillions in funding, while domestic mental health care will get.... well, several orders of magnitude less.  :sad:

Yeah blame it on the war. BS
These are warriors and masculine patriotic cis gender men.  The society today has no place for them blames them for the patriarchy calls them toxic, favors foreigners over them.  War my ass.

What would we reasonably blame 7,000 combat deaths on if not war?
Although I do agree that veterans don't receive the support they obviously require. More ought to be done for them. Hopefully that veteran bill will finally be pushed through and do some good.

Are you sure Rich Eisen said that? I didn't listen to the interview but I didn't see Eisen on there when I skimmed it quickly. I also don't see anything on a twitter search. Anyone got a quote? I subscribe to Rich Eisen's youtube channel and it mostly just seems to be a mix of sports and stars talking guy movies/tv shows/music.

It's sad for sure but it's over a twenty year period. How many served during that time? Over three million. Meaning less than one in a thousand committed suicide. Of course we want to minimize suffering in the world, but it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Don't kill Bin Laden? That means Al Qaeda grows more powerful. How many potential lives would be lost from a pacifist approach? It's incalculable. No one knows. But if jihadists get their hands on nukes, that could mean the end of civilization. Everyone on earth could die. Or maybe just a very large number, with sickening radiation spreading across the globe. An absolute disaster. Islamic terrorism is the greatest threat in the world today. Thanks to the U.S. military and other militaries, it's been diminished.

I thought obesity was the greatest threat or maybe alcohol.

How about 700,000 Americans dead from Covid-19?
