    Default PENTAGON now says, 34 soldiers diagnosed with brain injuries

    3 days ago it was 11. This AM it was 24. Late on a FRI AFTERNOON, they adjust the # again? So it's not only "headaches and other things". It doesn't say whether they were evac'd. I assume so. You need MRI's and neurological workups--I feel sure they didn't have that capacity there.

    Pentagon says 34 U.S. troops were diagnosed with brain injuries after Iranian missile attack

    The Pentagon said Friday that 34 U.S. service members were diagnosed with varying degrees of brain injuries after Iran’s ballistic missile attack in Iraq this month, an increase in the number of troops known to have been hurt in the explosions.

    President Trump said the morning after the Jan. 8 attack that no U.S. troops were harmed. But defense officials have said information about injuries was not relayed to Washington until later because no service members suffered loss of life, limb or eyesight.

    On Wednesday, Trump downplayed the significance of the brain injuries.

    “I heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things,” he said. “But I would say, and I can report, it is not very serious, not very serious.”

    The Pentagon’s chief spokesman, Jonathan Hoffman, told reporters during a news conference Friday that the service members were diagnosed with “concussions and TBI,” or traumatic brain injury....

    The LAST thing Trump will 'allow' right now is a dead soldier. BET YOUR NEXT BREATH ON IT! You better have a momma like Pat Tillman's because TRUMP will fight them!! And it took her what 2 or 3 months to go public with BUSH'S lie? And years later for her to get all the paperwork.

    Yes, this is cynical, you bet your ass it is folks.

    ADD: It took a month to tell them it was friendly fire. (They knew 2 weeks in).


    Their mother, Mary, got the news from a reporter calling her for comment. The military withheld key facts from the Tillman family even as it admitted the broad stokes of his death. It would take four years of digging, led chiefly by Mary; seven official investigations; and two congressional hearings before some semblance of the truth surrounding Tillman’s death was pried from the government. More than 2,000 pages of testimony released to the Associated Press in 2007 revealed that “Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory emails for keeping criminal investigators at bay,” and that the close proximity of the bullet holes in Tillman’s forehead had raised serious questions from medical examiners as to the Army’s version of events.

    Ya don't get your Wheaties from missiles, especially these days cause quite obviously who knows what in em as opposed to who's just learning what's in em etc. ...
    We are in an endless duration of constant change where the only thing that doesn't change is that change occurs because energy, matter and time are always present

    The keyboard warriors don't give a shit. Just like run up to the last war. Then when another quagmire clusterfuck follows, they'll cry, time to destroy them. 16 years from now we will be at war on 3 fronts and how many more TRILLIONS will we gave pissed away?

    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    So, if Iran, a pariah nation and state sponsor of terrorism, kills hundreds of Americans and thousands of Muslims, we should not respond because they might continue to kill Americans and Muslims.

    I am glad that you were not president during WWI or WWll, Snowflake.
