Thanks a lot, Dubya, for abusing our military and driving our soldiers to suicide. He's thrown away the lives of American service men and women by attacking a country that did not attack us and was no threat to us. Thanks a lot, Dubya. There can be no doubt that the Republican Party is the anti-military party.

I have friends in the military who are dead for no good reason. Thanks a lot, Dubya. I have a military friend who will never walk again. Thanks a lot, Dubya. There can be no doubt: If a person hates our military with all his heart and wishes the most ill-will possible on it, that person should support the Republican Party, the anti-military party, the party that destroys our military for no good reason. Dubya has caused more harm to our military than any terrorist ever could. Thanks a lot, Dubya.

Lt. Elizabeth Whiteside, a psychiatric outpatient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center who was waiting for the Army to decide whether to court-martial her for endangering another soldier and turning a gun on herself last year in Iraq, attempted to kill herself Monday evening. In so doing, the 25-year-old Army reservist joined a record number of soldiers who have committed or tried to commit suicide after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"I'm very disappointed with the Army," Whiteside wrote in a note before swallowing dozens of antidepressants and other pills. "Hopefully this will help other soldiers." She was taken to the emergency room early Tuesday. Whiteside, who is now in stable physical condition, learned yesterday that the charges against her had been dismissed.

Whiteside's personal tragedy is part of an alarming phenomenon in the Army's ranks: Suicides among active-duty soldiers in 2007 reached their highest level since the Army began keeping such records in 1980, according to a draft internal study obtained by The Washington Post. Last year, 121 soldiers took their own lives, nearly 20 percent more than in 2006.
