Say What?

Ratio of WIA to KIA: 16. That means that almost 80,000 US soldiers were wounded in the Bush folly (the Pentagon counted 29,000 wounded in combat, the others were not wounded in combat or were wounded lightly). PTSD doesn't require physical injury, of course, hence the much larger 185,000 soldiers that have already broken down strong institutional and cultural barriers and asked for assistance. Of those, 52,000 were actually diagnosed with PTSD.

At which point is this going to be worse than anything a ragtag bunch of terrorists could do to the US? I'm guessing that point was reached a long time ago.
