The US government is reviewing 72,000 cases in which veterans have been diagnosed with severe post-traumatic stress disorder, claiming that misdiagnosis and fraud have inflated the numbers. Outraged vets say the plan is a callous attempt to cut the costs of an increasingly expensive war.

Just the US government refusing to take responsibility for their actions again.

While their mainstream media is not really allowed to report on it, so somebody has to keep them informed.

To date, Bush’s War has killed 1,458, wounded 13,877 and (we now learn) mentally scarred 72,000 American military personnel.

This figures do not include any other coalition partner, the 380 American military who did not die in combat, nor look beyond the official wounded list to other estimates ( over 17,000 ), and now these figures for PTSD sufferers.

And, naturally no figures on the Iraqi statistics, military or civilian, are included, if the even exist.

That’s quite a butcher’s bill for an unnecessary war.

The US should try Bush for treason before they turn him over to ICC to stand trial for crimes against humanity.
