Trump's a clown, but I really don't see how this is anything but a win for him. Everybody thought Soleimani was so important it would start WW3, but the US didn't have a single casualty before Iran was willing to end their attacks.

Its not a win, because the military Industrial complex as a whole is a failure.  The USA spends more on military than the next 10 countries combined.  http://www.crfb.org/blogs/us-spends-more-its-military-next-10-countries-combined  That's money that could be spent on healthcare, welfare, etc.  So because one Iranian General being assassinated didn't start WW3 doesn't mean the operation is a success, because it doesn't happen cheaply.  Its very expensive to be the world police, and there absolutely were casualties.   The casualties are the people who died from the hundreds of billions we spend on unneccesary military policing, that could have been spent on saving people's lives in hospitals instead.

The number of U.S. service members diagnosed with traumatic brain injury after Iranian missile attacks earlier this month has risen to 50 — up from the 34 reported last week. The Pentagon announced the increase Tuesday evening and said 32 of those 50 service members have already received treatment and returned to duty in Iraq.

 

The remaining 18 were sent to Germany for further evaluation.

Exclusive: More than 100 U.S. troops diagnosed with brain injuries from Iran attack - officials

 

3 Min Read

 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military is preparing to report a more than 50% jump in cases of traumatic brain injury stemming from Iran’s missile attack on a base in Iraq last month, U.S. officials told Reuters on Monday.

 

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of an announcement, said there were over 100 cases of TBI, up from the 64 previously reported last month.

 

The Pentagon declined to comment, but in the past had said to expect an increase in numbers in the weeks after the attack because symptoms can take time to manifest and troops can sometimes take longer to report them.
