Trump: 'I won't be changing my mind' on his view that brain injuries suffered by US troops'

Trump says 'I won't be changing my mind' on his view that brain injuries suffered by US troops in Iran's attack are not very serious

Ryan Pickrell Feb 11, 2020, 11:36 AM

President Donald Trump on Monday doubled down on his assertion that the injuries suffered by US troops during an Iranian missile attack on US forces are "not very serious."

Retaliating for the death of Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani at the hands of the US military, Iran fired over a dozen ballistic missiles at US and coalition forces in Iraq in early January. In the immediate aftermath, the president announced that "no Americans were harmed" and moved to de-escalate tensions.

Since then, the number of US troops diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injuries has steadily risen to 109, the Pentagon said on Monday.

Symptoms of a TBI can be slow to manifest and sometimes harder to detect than other injuries. The Department of Defense has offered this as an explanation for initial misreporting on injuries.

7. If they started using the correct

terminology then the soccer moms out there would be saying wait a moment are we making a big deal out of the same injury that my little Sally got last week when she bumped heads with the other team's goalie? Oh well she'll score next time.

5. not very serious sounds a lot like mild

from the OP: "the number of US troops diagnosed with MILD traumatic brain injuries"


.Mild traumatic brain injury may affect your brain cells temporarily.

6. A 'fine' point! I'd bet those impacted are kinda happy they still have their limbs.

Lefty hated offing Soleimani who was the base cause of our limb-less soldiers.
