  • PRE traumatic stress disorder. The US has just been so mean to them.

  • Sure... everyone involved in wars etc. would be subject to psychological problems, regardless of what side they are on.

  • Would they let us know if they did? But, I agree with bjojola on it should apply to anyone.

  • Why not?

    It doesn't have anything to do with political or social ideology.

  • I would think that any human beings who have persuaded themselves that it is good to pick up any weapon and shoot someone or bomb someone would suffer from PTSD because it is really not human nature to want to kill.....people are only brainwashed into thinking it is okay to kill other human beings and that takes a toll on the subconscious mind. They don't even understand it. They justsuffer and don't know why.
