    Traumatic brain injuries

    The number of US troops suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI) after an Iranian attack on a US base in Iraq in January has risen to 109, according to US officials.

    [...] President Donald Trump initially said no Americans were injured in the raid.

    And this is about the health of US troops, not just yet another instigation to attack Iran?

    [...] Nearly 70% of the injured service members have returned to their duties, the Pentagon added in its statement.
    Seriously?

    [...] More than 400,000 troops have been diagnosed with TBI's since 2000, according to the US government.
    Really seriously?

    Perhaps the Pentagon should be approached by the manufacturers of acetaminophen, there appears to be an unexplored market area.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    England's troubles will increase until the bishops open Joanna Southcott's box.
    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    TBI = concussion?

    It is expressed in a spectrum, starting at "headache" and progressing through concussion to very messy. I suggest 400,000 cases amounts to an awful lot of headaches and far fewer legitimate reasons for concern.
