The US forces are in a bad shape these days. The drug abuse ratings are skyrocketing. And this problem is getting worse through out every army on the planet battling hard demands and expectations on the soldiers. And considering the amount of drug abuse in the US army I don’t see a problem for any “bigger army” equipped nation to be able to defend itself against USA. Because the drug abuse in the US military are now so severe that its even threatening their national security also because they lower the over all readiness of American troops. Their fighting will is also effected gravely.
The drug abuse undermines all forms of authority and the strict order that fuels military efficiency. And most importantly, they damage human lives – the lives of all the brave men and women who risk their lives to fight for all our freedoms.
Do you have any idea how serious is the problem of drug use in the US military? After two decades in which general abuse levels declined across all branches of the U.S. Military, recent numbers indicated that the problem is once again reaching epic proportions. Consider the following statistics:
* Since 1999, over 17,000 people have been discharged from the U.S. military because of drug use.
* The Navy has discharged more individuals because of drug use during that time (3,400) than any of the other branches of the armed services.
* Since 1999, failed drug tests have increased in the U.S. Air Force by 82%, and in the U.S. Army by 37%
So think about that.. all Americans before you BRAG OUT about how effective your army is. Off course that goes for any army with these same deadly problems.
