Half of the 34 US soldiers treated for concussion symptoms have returned to duty

The Pentagon said Friday that half of the thirty-four American soldiers treated for concussion symptoms suffered during the Iranian missile attack on Al Assad Air Base in Iraq earlier this month following the killing of Revolutionary Guards Gen. Qassem Soleimani have since returned to active duty.

Concussion, by definition is brain trauma. Good work spinning this nothing burger into a lefty talking point sky news.

Sounds like some deep state propaganda to me. Maybe if we weren’t occupying the Middle East this wouldn’t have happened.

Brain injuries? I’ve gotten concussions from football before and so has everyone who has played sports at one point what the hell is this.

All bc of Trump, who had "bone spurs" and was too chicken to help anyone other than himself! Trump has caused a lot of loss of lives, injuries, division amongst people, here and abroad.

This is stupid. You can either say there were no casualties and look strong, or you can cry in public and walk around with a limp. Only one of those prevents escalation.

If our troops were close enough to get traumatic brain injuries from the blast, then they were close enough to capture, pull him out and put him on trial as a terrorist. That is what this country used to do, it is what men of honor do. It turns out is all as I said it was before. Trump has no honor, no morality, no ethical backbone at all.

The WH can't deliver on its imminent threat intelligence, so by international law standards it does not meet the criteria needed for the action taken and is a crime. By any standard it was an act of war. The name Ferdinand ring a bell. The man was within 15 miles of well over 3,000 us troops. He was a high ranking official of a bad but recognized government, as they say turnaround is fair play, best watch your back Pompeo, and Mnchin. He was not in an armored caravan, he had just left the airport in a regular passenger vehicle, in a caravan of exactly two regular civilian autos. It was an assassination and a blown opportunity to bring hm to justice. Yes we might have lost some troops or we might not of, none of us know that answer, so if you say you do you're full of it, just shut up. We without a doubt lost the opportunity to focus the worlds attention on the threat of lawless terrorist, of the need to stand together against that kind of evil, to put on display for the world, and the people of Iran the inhuman acts, the torture and the pain that man imposed upon so many including Iran's own, some of their best, some of their future taken by the terrorist of all of us. That is what a terrorist is, we lost the opportunity to teach that to terrorize one is to terrorize us all. Sometimes you must sacrifice for the greater good, for a better outcome not today, but tomorrow, or many days after. If you don't know or can't learn that simple lesson you are already lost, you have failed to learn what so many philosophers, thinkers, and religions have tried to teach us, you have failed to be human.

Instead of passing blame focus on the fact we have 34 more wounded.. With brain injuries.. How bout focusing on them n hoping they r getting the best care possible n these are not life changing......it's a touchy subject for me.. I served in the combat medical hospitals u see out there.... I detest seeing any soldier injured... N I do have a kid brother whose life forever changed by a head injury... So know what they are before u make assine absurd comments... Yes I served n cared for the dead n wounded.. Twenty one years worth..enlisted by choice inspite of a having a bachelor of science.. I have no patience for brass n most officers.. For me Sargent majors rule
