if you think the u.s is the boogeyman, lets see how much you love your life under a russian led world. while understandably the u.s might not have the best economy or standard of living in the world nonetheless if the u.s were to collapse the entire world economy would crumble causing a world economic collapse. good luck!!

Pretty RARE in our forces.

PTSD is not so rare in US forces...



Post-traumatic stress disorder afflicts roughly 2 to 5 percent of non-combat U.K. soldiers returning from deployment, while 7 percent of combat troops report PTSD. According to a General Health Questionnaire, an estimated 16 to 20 percent of U.K. soldiers have reported symptoms of common mental disorders, similar to the rates of the general U.K. population. In comparison, the authors say recent studies show U.S. soldiers experience PTSD at rates of 21 to 29 percent. The U.S. Department of Affairs estimates PTSD afflicts 11 percent of veterans returning from Afghanistan and 20 percent returning from Iraq. Major depression is reported by 14 percent of major soldiers according to study commissioned by RAND corporation; roughly seven percent of the general U.S. population reports similar symptoms. One Link of Many

A quick edit to make it clear that I am not singling out American forces, or indeed any military personnel in this regard. Rather, that a lot of Vets are being forgotten or ignored if they suffer mental health issues as a result of their service. In Canada, our Dear Leader only 'gets it' in election years, so I'm far from being smug.

During the war it is and that is the only factor where someone would CRACK and murder innocents.
I know AND I have it,during the war I was distracted with not screwing up .
There isn't any time for philosophical reflection when one is getting shot at.

Somehow, I think we're talking at cross purposes for no good reason, and I don't have an axe to grind with you (this time out...lol), so we should probably focus on the the trolling expedition that is this thread. Cool?
