Trump Dismisses Troops’ Possible Brain Injuries as ‘Headaches’
“I heard they had headaches,” Mr. Trump said at a news conference in Davos, Switzerland. “No, I don’t consider them very serious injuries, relative to other injuries that I’ve seen.”

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday dismissed concussion symptoms reported by several American troops after Iranian airstrikes on Al Asad Air Base in Iraq as “not very serious,” even as the Pentagon acknowledged that a number of service members were being examined for possible traumatic brain injury caused by the attack.

“I heard they had headaches,” Mr. Trump said at a news conference in Davos, Switzerland. “No, I don’t consider them very serious injuries, relative to other injuries that I’ve seen.”

The comments of the president, who avoided the Vietnam War draft with a medical diagnosis of bone spurs, drew swift criticism from veterans’ groups.

“Don’t just be outraged by #PresidentMayhem’s latest asinine comments,” Paul Rieckhoff, the founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, wrote in a Twitter post . “Take action to help vets facing TBIs,” a reference to traumatic brain injury.

The deputy commander of the American-led military operation in Iraq said the Defense Department was putting the service members through medical examinations to see if the headaches and other complaints amounted to traumatic stress injuries. Some of the affected troops were mere feet away from where the Iranian missiles struck, although they were in protective bunkers, Defense Department officials said.

“I haven’t seen the president’s comments, so I won’t comment on them,” Maj. Gen. Alexus G. Grynkewich of the Air Force told reporters during a news conference at the Pentagon. “I probably wouldn’t even if I had.”

He added: “I can just tell you from the perspective of a commander on the ground that we’re going to take symptoms from any kind of injury as seriously as we can.”

At a separate event earlier in the day, General Grynkewich denied that the White House had influenced how and when the military acknowledged that several American troops at the Asad base in Iraq had concussion symptoms as a result of the Iranian missile strikes and were being flown to a United States military hospital in Germany for treatment.

“We were not influenced by anyone,” he said.

Concussive brain injuries should not be treated lightly. My daughter's father-in-law suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was in Iraq, his humvee hit an IED. Anyway, he suffers terrible headaches and takes about 30 different medications.

Folks that have been returning from wars in the Mid-East, include many that have these exact injuries. Having the fortune to be friends with some of these people I can tell you that not only is it very real, it is also a very real fear that many soldiers face. “What’s worse than getting killed in battle? Being a vegetable...” is the verbiage I have heard from more than one returning soldier. There is a conscience recognition, that possible Traumatic brain injury is not an uncommon reality. 

Trump, fuck you and your “bone spurs”. You don’t know shit.

Decent people recognize this.

They do and support doing something about it, full state of the art in the medical area.

Anything less is a unique and horrible dereliction of civic and civil duty.

So, are all of you ready to go to war with Iran? That is what it sounds like.

If the injuries are that severe, then a direct response is required. Sorry, just ignoring Iranian aggression against US personnel isn't going to cut it anymore. Bush, Obama, and even Trump tried it. It just emboldens them to do more.

I am all for getting out of the middle eastern sandbox and letting our allies that have real assets there that need to be protected take over; not that they will. Syria proved that. The British and French were all bluster about taking over the US roll; but when the time came they beat the US out the door.

Of course both sides bashed Trump for his faux pullout of troops from Syria to the point he backed down.  Now those same people are calling for troop withdrawal from Iraq. There are Kurds in Iraq as well. They have been our "allies" far longer than the Syrian Kurds. 

24/7 TDDDDS is not the answer to our problems.  Letting our "allies" take care of their own problems for a change is.

Meh, we don't know what Trump was told. I don't hear him saying "TBI is only headaches" or "TBI is not serious."

He said he "heard they had headaches." That's not a diagnosis. Someone told him they were having headaches. That's what he heard. Is he supposed to make more of that than there is? That would be just as bad as minimizing a serious injury. It may be too early to say if anyone's condition is "serious." It's definitely too early to make anything out of this throwaway comment.

There were stories in the news, a number of days before Trump said anything yesterday, indicating that a dozen or so soldiers were being evaluated for possible traumatic brain injury, including severe concussion. 

Unless he knows for sure what the nature of these injuries were, he should not be talking  about "headaches". It is irresponsible for him to potentially be downplaying the severity of these injuries.

That's not surprising if they reported headaches. So what?

What do you mean by "talking about headaches?" He said he was told he was told they had headaches. At the moment, he doesn't have a reason to say they have serious injuries. He's reporting what he was told. If he said nothing about it, you'd accuse him of covering it up.

He's the president of the United States for christs sake , dont you have any standards for this man to uphold? None?

Oh please, then! Tell us what the standard is. What would you like him to say or not say? If he has been told the men have headaches, but it's not yet considered serious, should he say so or not? What is it you want, exactly?

Your links show that this announcement was made Friday, January 24. According to the seed, Trump's comments were made on Wednesday. If you're not familiar with these things, Wednesday comes before Friday.

Also according to one of your links,

The military said symptoms of concussion or traumatic brain injury were not immediately reported after the strike and in some cases became known only days later.

All of this hate you want to level at Trump presumes, without evidence, that he knew soldiers had been diagnosed with TBI but was going to call it something else. There is no justification for that.

How could he know before the men have been completely examined and a report issued? Is he both a doctor and a psychic?

There are several levels of care in forward areas and base camps, like FST or CSH  all equipped to do routine healthcare,including

MRIs and ultrasounds.  The battalion in question had a medical team of 30 with 4 surgeons.

The only patients who get the 10 hour Galaxy trip from Irag to Landstuhl are the "seriously injured" ones.

Even healthy well equipped air crew have headaches after a flight like that,

so the implication is that the injuries were much worse than headaches.

Advocates demand apology from Trump for troop concussion comments

Veterans advocates, lawmakers and the father of a SEAL who took his own life are criticizing President Donald Trump after his   dismissal of concussion injuries   to U.S. troops from an Iranian rocket attack as “not very serious,” saying his comments   could discourage service members   from reporting their medical problems.

“Traumatic brain injury is a serious injury and one that cannot be taken lightly,”   Veterans of Foreign Wars   National Commander William Schmitz said in a statement over the weekend. “TBI is known to cause depression, memory loss, severe headaches, dizziness and fatigue — all injuries that come with both short- and long-term effects.

“The VFW expects an apology from the president to our service men and women for his misguided remarks.”

A couple of points. US Military members have been sent to war for decades but when we come home with injuries getting help can be near impossible. It's quite easy to send us off to war, but when the ravages of war come home it seems that the administrations look the other way. 

Trump should have kept his mouth shut until he was briefed and actually knew what the results of the attack actually where. I suppose that would be asking the impossible.

Sad, how people refuse to face the TRUTH, that inevitably, They Must, as the longer in denial,

the more pruned their unwashed hands become, the more our once prominent nation becomes

undone,  

for what he, and THEY, have let themselves 

shun.

As masking reality as to what they seem unable to face, truly is a

Disgrace
