So go ahead and surprise me with some actual evidence that soldiers can be sued for injuries suffered in combat. Good luck with that. And in the meantime you can feel really good about yourself for baselessly sliming US military troops in order to absolve Donald Trump of another instance of his dishonesty.

Hold your horses nit.  don't ever try to assert or assume what I am feeling.  I did not baselessly slime or imply anything about any US military troops nor did I mention nor imply anything about Donald Trump.  Those are your words and you are the one that clearly is running off on tangents.    As I said these troops were not in combat.  And as for troops suing for injuries, uh yeah, it happens quite often.  Ever hear of Agent Orange?  Defective gear or supplies that the military knew about but did not warn or instruct the troops, etc.  I suggest you do some research, Feres doctrine for example and the issue of negligence.  And the troops can bring action against DOD and other agencies such as the VA.  So don't be surprised if some of these troops are going out of their way to document or allege injury.

Wonder if this casualty count is to molify the Persians so they don't feel the need to fire off more missiles ?  

Many things are possible and nobody here has the real numbers or detailed information about the people or cases involved.   bristolboy thinks he knows all the answers.  I just pose questions just as you did.

Drip, drip, drip, drip

 

That is how everything is done by this administration.  Make a false claim, get caught then change the claim, get caught lying and change it once again, keep it up until no one remember that the count went from zero, to 38, then to 50, wonder if it will hit 100 ?

Well that didn't take long to go over my predicted number:

A total of 109 US service members have been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injuries since the Iranian missile attack on US forces in Iraq in early January.

President Donald Trump previously characterized the injuries as “not very serious,” prompting criticism from a leading veterans group that demanded an apology.

In an interview with Fox Business on Monday, the president doubled down, saying he wouldn’t change his mind.

The truth, you can't handle the truth Mr. President
