US Army Colonel Talks Of Traumatized US Troops; It Gets Crazier And Crazier ...
Shown (smiling), above is Colonel, Elspeth Ritchie.
She's psychiatry consultant to the US Army surgeon general.
Here's something she recently said.
At the time that the war began, I don't think anybody anticipated how long it would be going on," Ritchie said of the need for more health care workers, adding that long and repeat deployments caused by extended wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are causing more mental strain on troops.So see some more re;such stupefyingly shortsighted shit.
But before we go, here's what we want to say to Col Ritchie on this especially touchy subject.
You don't think ANYONE anticipated how long IRAQ 'would be going on'?!
Jeezus, missus (or miss or mizz) -- are you completely crazy, Colonel?
Or simply several sandwiches short of a picnic?
Listen, lady -- either way -- you should have your head examined.
That's all, ma'am.
And keep on taking the tablets; the silly-tablets, that is.
Since they seem to be working so sodding well.
