    ABC tonight reported on this new disorder that is affecting the medical personnal whom are treating the injured combatants of the Iran mess. The disorder seems to be 'numbing' those whom see and treat the injured, the news article stated that there can be long term mental and emotional scarring, similar to PTSD, that is not yet treatable or even understood fully.

    Personnal mainly located in Germany, at the largest hospital for the military outside of the US, are the ones most affected. On a daily basis they are subject to seeing, being involved with, and trying to council those with life shattering injuries. Missing limbs,shattered dreams, lost hope in a large dose daily is takeing its toll on the medical practishioners. More info as I find it.....
