Military Developing Anti-suicide Nasal Spray As Deaths Hit Record Numbers

As the suicide rate among soldiers climbs to the highest levels in history, the Army is hoping Americans might one day treat their mental health woes with a single sniff.

The Army has just handed a $3 million grant to researchers at the University of Indiana’s School of Medicine for the creation of an anti-suicide nasal spray. The project, to be led by Dr. Michael Kubek, an associate professor of neurobiology, is arguably one of the more unusual military efforts to thwart a record number of suicides among active-duty personnel and veterans.

The Devil

outsmarted nasal spray before we all existed. Nasal spray to cure the conscience is insane. These soldiers are being mislead, and their is no cure except the Truth. I feel terrible for them, I am a former Marine. A soldier is a killer with a uniform, and the human mind was never designed to comprehend nor justify such a thing, hence emotional trauma. Lay down your guns and look up.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Conscience must be free of drugged coersion to worship or not

This is no remedy, but an attempt to keep chemically-corrupted service folks from feeling the tremendous pangs of conscience that follow when anyone; justly or unjustly; strikes a death-blow against anyone else made in God's image and likeness.

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." Frederick Douglass (1857)
