Ignoring the 800 Pound Gorilla

The Associated Press ran a story this week about the "unexplained and stunning spike in suicides in January". The story is full of expressions of concern and pledges to take steps to prevent suicides. Not once, however, is the possibility that repeated deployments to war zones stresses individuals to such extreme actions even alluded to. Mostly, the concern seems to be about the increase and the military's concern about bad publicity.
