From the Nov. 20, 2014 Congressional Research Service report, A Guide to U.S. Military Casualty Statistics: Operation Inherent Resolve, Operation New Dawn, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom:
This report presents statistics regarding U.S. military casualties in the active missions Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR, Iraq and Syria) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF, Afghanistan), as well as operations that have ended, Operation New Dawn (OND, Iraq) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF, Iraq). This report includes statistics on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), amputations, evacuations, and the demographics of casualties. Some of these statistics are publicly available at the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) website and others have been obtained through contact with experts at DoD.

    What a waste.

    The most beautiful I have ever seen humanity is on a huge dance floor, with music playing and persons and families of all ages, shape, sizes, genders, religions, nationality dancing together with each other. They are always smiling and everyone enjoys humanity”s most basic need to socialize.

    the complete opposite, is on the battlefield where they are murdering each other.

    one is social the other is antisocial

    one is good the other bad.

    one is based on truth the other on lies.

    one is led and directed by people of social conscience, the other by unconscionable antisocial personality disordered -sociopaths.

    Make it illegal, for sociopaths to hold government office/power, and the world will become more civilized.

      “Make it illegal, for sociopaths to hold government office/power”

      Great idea. Now to fully implement that you will need a way of enforcing it, in case some bad person tries to force their way to power. You will need to create a group of armed people who would be used in these cases. Of course the bad people will also have their own group of armed people.

      Mmmmm……

        I am all for laws that restrict the freedoms and rights of sociopaths.

          You just don’t get it do you? How do you enforce what you propose? You do so with armed forces! Which is what you are ranting against. And I am wasting my time explaining this to you because people of your ilk would not believe the stupid crap you believe if you had any capacity for intelligent thought in the first place.
