Media: In the US Army is allowed to serve people with mental problems

59
In the United States lifted the ban on the admission to the army of recruits with mental problems, writes USA Today. According to the newspaper, people in whose past “self-mutilation”, bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now become recruits in the US Army.


Media: In the US Army is allowed to serve people with mental problems


The decision to admit persons with mental disorders to the army was made because the forces of the American army faced a difficult task - to recruit 80 000 new soldiers before September 2018, because the country's president, Donald Trump, is going to expand the fight against terrorist groups.

In order to complete the task last year and recruit 69 000 people, recruits who didn’t show themselves well on fitness tests were accepted into the army, and the number of new recruits who had used marijuana also increased. Also wishing to join the army was offered a financial reward.

The decision to allow people with mental health problems to serve was made in part because the army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit.

            Tatyana, hello. hi
            The decision on the admission of people with mental disorders to the army was made, since the forces of the American army are faced with the difficult task of recruiting 80 new soldiers by September 000.

            But do not the USA plan to allocate 20 loonies from this amount for a peacekeeping mission in LNR? what

                In this case, if the United States somehow manages to push its UN project on peacekeepers to the UN, I strongly recommend that residents and LNR defenders stay away from such peacekeepers: they will even bite and infect with some obscene ailment. Cretinism, for example ...

            According to a Pentagon press conference, 11 US officers at six air bases were involved in drug use and distribution. Three of them were on alert at bases in Wyoming and Montana that host Minuteman ground-based nuclear intercontinental missiles.

            According to Pentagon officials, the military used "soft drugs for entertainment." It is also reported that 34 officers, also serving at missile bases, tricked the command during inspections that are conducted once a month. Now 600 of their colleagues will have to re-pass certification.

            All violators are suspended from the performance of their duties, an internal investigation is underway. The punishment for the guilty will be imposed on its results.

            The scandal affected air bases in Edwards and Vandenberg in California, Shriver in Colorado and Lakenhit in the UK, which also houses American soldiers and officers. Violations of military discipline were discovered at Warren missile bases in Wyoming and Malmstrom in Montana, where Minuteman ground-based ICBMs were deployed. These missile units are subordinate to the Air Force Global Attack Command, which works closely with the U.S. Strategic Command

        I have no sympathy for McCain. But I always had a good opinion about the Vietnamese military and partisans. And I doubt that they used criminal-pederastic methods. The one who "lowers" someone, in my concept, is not a full-fledged person. The one who is able to "lower" someone, is he a bugger by definition? If his body is able to carry out this action. Although, of course, specialists from the FSIN system said that it could be “omitted” in other, no less humiliating ways.

        Problems begin when such "soldiers", with weapons in their hands, taking advantage of absolute impunity, are doing, for example, with civilians. This is not to mention what they do even in the arrangement of their own parts. However, I’m very happy for the American army. A similar approach to the quality of personnel will undoubtedly enhance its combat capabilities. laughing

          It is known that research was conducted, and it turned out that normal people are ineffective in killing their own kind. A variety of deviants are good at killing, as it is easier for them to remove psychological barriers. Apparently, there are just sorely lacking killers in the army.

            This is a pseudo-scientific, western nonsense. The army of psychos is good when you need to clean up or destroy a large number of people, but to win the war is not possible with it. Due to the inadequacy of such "soldiers". A normal soldier in a war does not just kill, much less enjoys it, he does his job. Either to protect the fatherland, or to remain faithful to the oath. I read these "studies", the next "British scientists", about the psychopathology of killers in the war, I will say it again, they are simply trying to imagine the problems of their rotten society as universal.

    We looked at ukrovermaht - drunks drinks looked at the "English submariners" with coke wassat and sluts on the submarine and decided that such an option for the soldiers is acceptable to them. Anyway - with a "cheerful" mood, the service is easier. But seriously, the discipline is simply and ruthlessly maintained there: a system of fines, the military police, for the “gifted” fast military court, a term, deprivation of benefits for military personnel and a “wolf ticket” for the rest of their lives. We decided that they would cope with the problems completely. Wait and see.

      In everything I support them from this side. In the end, is it a service or territory of strict non-alcoholic, drug-free celibacy for those who are “fit” by reference?

    I look forward to expanding democratic freedoms for the service:
    - autistic;
    - downs (with information, not by origin);
    - with manic-depressive psychoses;
    - suffering from various obsessions;
    - suffering from strong alcohol (or, okay, any other) addiction;
    - latent suicides.
    This, I understand, would be a big deal. It would be worth respecting ...... But, who knows, the United States can only at the beginning of its strongest democratic initiatives ...
