Re: Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - 12 Dec

I had heard of this shocking statistic earlier, but was stunned again when this was discussed on a radio show on my drive to work this morning. Which is that on average, 22 US servicemen veterans are committing suicide every day. That is almost one every hour. Some, perhaps many, of these veterans a...
