I dont want to take sides for or against Trump. . . but with regard to brain injuries there is a lot of downside when they dont heal it can become a chronic issue like a disease. Its easy to see if someone's skin is healing. . . Its a lot harder to see if someone's brain is healing. If they get the very best medical care available then they should heal. It should be possible to prevent serious consequences. Trump is trolling in his usual insensitive way. . .
Easy to be negative. Keeping it in perspective... Good news is... less damage to our troops under Trump than under Bush.
Try to judge based on results if you are going to judge. Its hard to see him dismissing our Troops... but do you want George Bush instead? Bush's wars were not good for our Troops-- on a much larger scale.

Congrats to our troops! Serving is a better choice than getting into meth and alcohol. Be proud of injuries that are the result of good choices.

Do we know all the details? I would not be surprised if the majority were concussions. They were in bunkers but there would have been lots of pressure from the explosions. Even very mild concussions are called traumatic brain injury. But we haven't been told exactly what the injuries really are.

Trump could have gone nuts like some of his detractors. Blown it all up, used it as an excuse to escalate the conflict. Get more people hurt or killed. Maybe he is saying it is just headaches to make the Iranians feel even more ineffective. Maybe he is downplaying it ti cut down on calls for revenge. Trying to cool it off. Maybe he was right and most were just minor concussions. We don't know for sure.

But heck, use it as another excuse for hate. Or an excuse to beat the war drums. Never let a disaster go unexploited. Or maybe we could just sit back, take a deep breath, and not jump off the deep end. Wait until we get all the facts before rushing to judgment.

Well he did almost start a war that would have put many troops in real danger but Iran wisely declined. Our troops can vote... its up to them who they want to cast a vote for. Hopefully they have enough true and unbiased info (perhaps insider info) to choose wisely.

I read an article Senator Joni Ernst posted on Facebook about the TI issue. She is an Iraq War II veteran, retired army officer and concerned with the well being of our troops. The total of TBI reported from the Iranian missile attack is now 100. All concussions from shock of the bombs. Most were very minor and 78 have already returned to duty.

I guess there are 2 options to prevent this. Either require our enemy to use bombs that don't go boom, or bring our people home. I say bring them home. Bush screwed things up bad enough,not much more left to mess up, and they don't want us there.Just declare victory and go home.
