Suicide is painless? 

Navy Rear Admiral Harry Harris demonstrates the firm grasp of reality and commitment to face unpleasant facts which has characterized the American military since the War on Terror began:
"They hung themselves with fabricated nooses made out of clothes and bed sheets . . . They have no regard for human life, neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation but an act of asymmetric warfare against us."
So three prisoners at Guanranamo commit suicide and he's mad at them?
If killing yourself is an "act of warfare" rather than of despair, then I guess the 210 US soldiers who have committed suicide since the Iraq War began should now be regarded as having died in combat?
. . . 'Cause suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
