PTSD ****** up one of my sisters friends real bad. He went over to Iraq and he and a buddy were sitting on a wall talking and **** . Then the next thing he knew his buddy was falling off the wall. His buddy had been shot straight in the face and he'd watch the entire thing and held his dead buddies body in his arms as he cried heavily. When he got back he was a completely different person, I almost didn't even recognize him.

Ummm....... Looks like they're just on a phone.

I mean, who hides from fireworks with their legs crossed so casually like that.

No disrespect to people with PTSD or anything like that, but at least use a legit picture.
#540 to #525 - John Cena (03/03/2013) [-]
Crossing your legs reduces the amount of body shown from behind a barricade, which lessens your chance of being hit with artillery/bullets
#551 to #540 - muldawg (03/03/2013) [-]
Going to have to disagree with you there
I went to officer candidates school for the USMC, and while they described how to reduce one's silhouette, they never once mentioned that crossing your legs would be a good idea. Mainly because there are better ways to maintain cover and balance while returning fire.

Also, I'm pretty sure I'm spotting a satellite phone in her hand.

If he was on the phone, he wouldn't be covering both his ears like that, and looking downwards
#603 to #597 - muldawg (03/04/2013) [-]
Or maybe it's just loud because of the ******* fireworks.
#607 to #603 - lelelelolelelo (03/05/2013) [-]
both his hands are flat, and I highly doubt anyone has a ******* antenna on their phone nowadays. and again, why would he be looking STRAIGHT down on the ground if he was on the phone?
#610 to #607 - muldawg (03/05/2013) [-]
Natural human reaction.
When people are in loud places and they're on their phone, they'll usually hold it really close to their ear while covering the other ear with their hand. They almost always look down as well, even though it doesn't really help.

Anyways, I was just making an observation with my first comment, you really can't tell either way because it's not a high quality photo.
#611 to #610 - lelelelolelelo (03/05/2013) [-]
aye, could be either way. Let's leave it at that, no point arguing which is what anyway.

My grandfather suffered from PTSD when he came home from Korea, a car backfired and made him collapse in the middle of street crying for almost hour, the part that killed me was that during that time no one helped him.

What if she's making a call on a cell phone and trying to hear better? How can we be sure it's fireworks?

Yeah I feel bad for the people going through this, but they knew the risk going into that type of situation. They knew what they were going to see and experience.

Yeah when you sign up to be a solider, you know you are sacrificing your life. However, You can't fully know what you are sacrificing until you're in that situation.

I think it should be someones job to mentally train soldiers before they go into war.
#474 to #381 - John Cena (03/03/2013) [-]
It's called basic military training. :3 They intentionally put you in high-stress situations and watch how you react. Though, I can't say that it's very effective.

How do you propose you mentally train someone to be shot at, see their friends die in front of them, and innocent women and children caught in the crossfire though?
#390 to #381 - JHDog (03/03/2013) [-]
That sounds very interesting to experiment, but i feel that just like months of physical training, months of mental training will only get you somewhat ready.

I have done 2 tours of afghanistan,helmand province,nad e ali south with an elite unit (no ******** ) and i can tell you all,without reservation, that i do not want to share a planet with a totalitarian idiology like the taliban.I will debate anybody,anywhere,anytime in any conditions that the counter insurgency operations that we are conducting in afghan are absolutly critical to our survival.If we where not there,they would have the freedom to train and plan and events like 9/11 would be a weekly occurence.I want to destroy them,all of them.

BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA 911 Ya right, like osama was responsible for that one right ? Not to mention that he's bestfriends with Bush the man who ******* planned the whole falseflag in the first place. We're in no danger from the middle east, you've just been corrupt from the media, if anything it's your government that will be responsible for murdering your family
#254 to #245 - John Cena (03/03/2013) [-]
I agree with you, I think it's unfortunate that most people don't realize just how god-awful and depraved the Taliban's actions are.

Just because you killed and raped in the name of religion doesn't make it okay.
#259 to #254 - John Cena (03/03/2013) [-]
it doesn't mean it's america's business either to take roll as "world police" to say they're stopping rape and acid tossing, when they're really fighting freedom fighters for their oil

I dont see what part of this could possibly be real. This was probably a civilian worker taking a photo for a suicide campaign near a hospital.

Are you really this ignorant?
User avatar #41 to #39 - whyfalsewhy (03/03/2013) [-]
Well if you are using the word Ignorant correctly then yes he is and so is everyone else looking at this, we don't know the names of the person who took the photo or the name of the person in the photo, we also don't know if the man in the photo has had any military experience, we are all ignorant of the details of this picture.
#44 to #41 - ravyen (03/03/2013) [-]
He was saying it couldn't possibly be real, implying that PTSD isn't real.
User avatar #45 to #44 - whyfalsewhy (03/03/2013) [-]
It could be real, but he/she dose have a point, a friend or a family member would be more respectful than to take this photo, and a stranger would avoid or ask the guy if he was ok, they wouldn't right away take a photo.
#52 to #45 - licatabroskibro (03/03/2013) [-]
I don't see why everyone is mad at whyfalsewhy, he has a point. We don't know anything about this picture.
User avatar #212 to #52 - whyfalsewhy (03/03/2013) [-]
On this site arguing with the concept of a picture is like pointing out a picture is a re-post, kinda getting sick of it's **** .
#13 - John Cena (03/03/2013) [-]
I know that me saying this will be unpopular most likely, however from a psychology perspective running from a stimuli that evokes a negative response reinforces it so that it is harder to break. It becomes persistent. Such as a fear of heights, would cause the person to avoid heights reducing the anxiety of stimuli evokes, however, the reaction to the stimuli is never changed and so the response is always the same.

My brother is in the infantry and he had PTSD, he recovered from it. Not hating on the soldiers, they do something that many can't.
User avatar #90 to #13 - cannibalotter (03/03/2013) [-]
I don't mean to sound like a butt, but recovery from PTSD is next to impossible, controlling them or making them invisible to others is quite easy.

And while I don't doubt your brother had it, I do doubt that he has completely recovered. I say that simply from experience, being diagnosed with PTSD at a young age I have spent most of my conscious life controlling it, and while most people would say I'm normal and fine, people close and intimate with me know how bad it gets, and only by accident do they know. Most of the time when you're in "treatment" you focus on control more than getting better...

But that control doesn't always last forever, and by that time most people have assumed you recovered.
User avatar #21 to #13 - reigndrac (03/03/2013) [-]
It's true that it's not something completely impossible to recover from, but we have to remember that knowing what to do and having the willpower and courage to do it are two totally different things. Whether or not I, or anyone else for that matter, agrees with what wars are started for, they've seen and done things that will haunt them forever. It's gotta be near impossible to not give into your basic human instincts to get away form stimuli like that.
