A new study from Onlinetherapy.com has now shown part of the shockingly high cost veterans have paid due to the effects of their time serving in the Afghan war.

The study has shown that 9 out of 10 veterans surveyed reported exacerbated mental health symptoms since the Taliban takeover, which was enabled by Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw from Afghanistan.

Some other key findings (per Onlinetherapy.com):

  • Since the Taliban takeover, 90% of Afghan war vets with a history of mental illness are experiencing new or worsening mental health symptoms
    • 75% are experiencing new or worsening symptoms of depression
    • 74% have new or worsening outbursts of anger
    • 64% of new or worsening thoughts of suicide
    • 58% have started or increased drug and/or alcohol use
  • 1/3 of vets with a history of mental illness have started seeing a mental health professional since the Taliban re-took Afghanistan

Many have also experienced a major increase in suicidal thoughts:

According to researchers, more than 30,000 veterans of the Global War on Terror (which includes the War in Afghanistan and the Iraq War that lasted from 2003 to 2011) have died by suicide.

Now, the fall of Afghanistan is triggering new or worsening thoughts of suicide in 64% of veterans coping with mental illness. Thirty-two percent are experiencing new thoughts of suicide, while another 32% indicate their suicidal thoughts have grown worse in the past few weeks.

An additional 58 percent have turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with the trauma.

Furthermore, more vets were forced to seek professional help during and after the Taliban takeover:

Men have also been more adversely affected than women:

It appears that Joe Biden’s decisions to hastily retreat from Afghanistan has endangered much more than just America’s interests aboard.

Clearly the shell of an evil man, Biden, is a puppet of the Devil, who uses Biden to make war on One Nation Under God. The evil Democrats have clearly sold out for greed and power.

Every conflict will produce shell shocked veterans. So, the Taliban took back Kabul? That would be no different than the “Hun” taking back Germany, or Communists expanding into Eastern Europe after WWII. G.I.s clenched their teeth when MacArthur was relieved after his plans to annihilate North Korea crossed with those of Harry Ass Truman. Cuba, to, watched a communist regime collect in their capital, and Saigon was similarly captured while our soldiers bid a hasty retreat. Sorry guys (Now girls.) When you eventually learn that you’re cannon fodder for Globalists who piqued–then exploited–your patriotism and youthful ignorance, you may learn eventually to carefully decided whether you wish to serve in that capacity.
