Post-traumatic psycho-babble


Post-traumatic psycho-babble | Embassy - Canada's Foreign Policy Newspaper: "American and British soldiers have been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan for about the same length of time, and their casualty rates have been about the same.

More than 30 percent of the American troops subsequently suffer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a condition that involves memory suppression and uncontrollable anxiety. Only four per cent of British troops do. It’s a statistic that suddenly undermines long-held assumptions."
