    …enough said.

  2. According to some of the defense whacko “doctors” as seen at the X Files,
    cleaning up body parts is not horrific enough to cause someone to suffer from PTSD.
    Why does it never change that our government, our DoD, will go so far and make such outrageous claims to deny PTSD victims help?
    Undiagnosed and untreated PTSD effects nearly every community in one way or another. There are stories in local newspapers every day about domestic problems, crimes being committed, suicides, car accidents that are caused by people with PTSD.
    All of these could be prevented by addressing the problem as it occurs rather than lying about it and abusing the families and communities that must live with the consequences.

  4. Information overload: the white specks on Brannigan’s arm are maggots in search of more dead flesh. The maggots curled around his fingeres and inbedded themselves in his watch band and tear ducts.

    This destruction of human flesh was not a result of napalm, as the title suggests. Napalm burns, and more effectively, suffocates the enemy. This creep was blown apart, not burned.

    Napalm, although voluntarily abandoned by the Army in the ’70s, should be utilized against the caves and tunnels in Afghanistan. Napalm does not so much burn the enemy in direct contact, but indirectly robs him of breathable oxygen Osama may walk on water for some, but he cannot breathe fire for anyone. BTW: I firmly believe Osama is dead and rotting in a cave for the past few years. It could be worse, those bought and paid for by the war-profiteers (corporations) could be in control.

      What do you mean with “this creep”, excuse me, but you are talking about a child, a human being, don’t be such a fucking dumbass! if you can do me the favor… It’s a real shame of some American people, It’s really a big fucking shame!! You people without any human sense are the reason why other countries hate us. You are just like that sick redneck of George W. Bush, and you people are the reason for terrorist attacks, your stupid arrogancy makes American inocent people suffer the consequences! And our brothers must go to an absurd war where the only fucking destiny they could reach is dying instantly with a fucking bomb without even knowing the reason and without even shooting their goddamn guns!

    @T. Lee Marshall
    sorry to have to tell you about this
    but napalm is one of the worst burning chemicals ever found
    around 75 % of direct victims got 5th degree burns
    which means that they burned through to the muscle and bone
    yes, many people did suffocate
    but many people also died due to the pain of the burns

    and no offence or anything
    but who the hell do you think you are?
    Do you honestly think that terrorists are just bloody crazy
    because im not from the middle east or asia
    as people may suspect
    but i still think that terrorists don’t just wake up one day and think, oh im going to go and try to kill americans
    it may not be an acceptable one for us
    but they think they have a good reason

    wait- is this picture the argument?
    wtf is wrong with you people? you don’t think carrying a body like that will f you up??

    • Jason said

      No it doesnt fuck you up. I did it myself and had no problem with it.

      • Ricky said

        Jason either you’re full of shit or too stupid to know what being fucked up by being exposed to this kind of shit really means. Or you just refuse to admit it. But if you have friends and family I’m sure they don’t feel the same as you do. By definition PTSD is a normal reaction to a seriously fucked up situation and there’s nothing wrong with it. It makes you human. It’s the people that claim to be unaffected by this kind of shit that I’m concerned about. Combat medic 14 years with 2 tours in Iraq. Qualified to speak on the subject? Fuckin right, I am.

    @ Heidi G.

    Who suspects you are from the Middle East with a name like Heidi?

    Most of these terrorists are undereducated and live in abject poverty. They are told that the West is responsible for this their whole lives and things will be better once they go to be with Allah! I do not necessarily blame them…I blame the whole religion and the evil zealot Muslim clerics who teach violence and hate. The educated people who turn to terrorism are just plain ol evil…they have no excuse for what they do!

    Who cares if these idiots “think” they have a good reason? They are evil!

    The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.

    The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

    Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

    Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that

    humankind respects them.

    Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel ‘s part, the following two sentences really say it all:

    ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel .”

    Benjamin Netanyahu

    General Eisenhower Warned Us

    It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

    He did this because he said in words to this effect:

    ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’

    Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

    It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way.

    Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

    This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

    How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States ?

    For those idiots that think terrorist are attacking because they won’t to, have no reason, or are “evil”, you’re a complete total moron and are ignorant. Terrorist attack because we invaded THEIR country because President Bush thought they had nuclear weapons, which they didn’t, cause he’s an idiot. We destroyed their government and killed their leader, sure Saddam was crazy and was killing his own people. But terrorist attack because we’re in their country and they want us out more than anything and will do anything necessary to get us out. The best thing for us to do is just to leave the country and leave them to their own fate. Think if China or Russia invaded us, you would want them out and would do anything to get them out and to them you would be known as terrorist to them. And since terrorist are “evil” that would make you evil but you would beg to differ. And so what if their Muslim, that’s their belief so let them believe what they want to. That just makes you more ignorant for hating them because of their belief. That’s why I’m just atheist.

    By the way napalm is one of the most powerful burning substances ever discovered. And that body was burned to that state because I’ve talk about that picture in my U.S. history class. Napalm does deprive people of oxygen nearby but if they’re close enough to suffocate from the flames they’re close enough to be burned by the flame. Napalm burns fast and burns for a while, it spreads everywhere and is hard to put out.

    And PTSD is very, very real. My dad has and a lot of his friends do from fighting in Iraq.

      zachary,…… are a apparent child im guessing? you have no idea what you are talking about. next time you are in iraq which im going to assume will be your first please let me know how you get along with these people. theyre beleifs are completly crazy and is the root of the problem

    • SgtSlim said

      No man, you are wrong. We didn’t invade the republic of terrorism. There is no such country. Terrorist came to Iraq as “insurgents” to pick away at our troops. I’v been there and been pinned down by a Czech Sniper who was working for the insurgents. They opened hunting season and there were no tag limits. So your argument is wrong and you are a complete and total idiot. Like those idiots who believe one day there will be 17 virgins in heaven. They kill Americans because they believe there is a holy war and we are the infidels.

  10. D.G. Vet said

    @Zachary E.
    We weren’t invading anything when they decided to fly planes into our buildings here on our soil. If I walked into your house and shot a family member, would you do anything about it? Think, research, and think some more before you speak. Enough Said.

  11. Widow in California said

    I would like to comment on the “PTSD is Fake”! No it’s not,,,My mother’s first husband was in World War II. He was one of the men that would come in after the battle and pick up what was left of our soldiers to bring them home. My mother told me he was NEVER the same after that experience. He wouldn’t talk about the things he saw or had to do while he was in the Navy. Back then they didn’t have a name for PTSD. PTSD isn’t something that only effects people that have been in a combat situation either. A traumatic event in a person’s life, a car accident where everyone else dies and you walk away with the memory of your loved ones burned, torn apart, yes, that can cause PTSD also. My mothers first husband died an alcoholic. He kept his demons at bay with alcohol. At least now it is recognized and can be treated.
