    If he thinks of what he does as other than a video game, he may very well suffer PTSD.

    This is why we shouldn’t be sending drones after American citizens.

    There is a Robin Williams movie from about 20 years ago called “Toys”. If you haven’t seen it, it is almost scary today. It is about a traditional toy company that begins using video games to train children to fight wars with drones. Apparently, somebody else saw the movie and thought it was a great idea.

    Yes, I enjoy Orson Scott Card’s style. Ironically, I came back here to post that, in regards to my previous post, I keep getting a popup on this site for a “Call of Duty” game.

    Not only cowardly, but totally unconstitutional. google “Bill of Attainder” and see why our constitution specifically forbids it (Article I section 9)

    This. Shell shock/battle fatigue/operational exhaustion/PTSD is from seeing the horror and feeling guilt associated with fighting a war. It’s never been treated enough. Not after WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, or any of the conflicts in the Middle East.

    In fact, even the Nazi Death Squads suffered from nervous breakdowns and had to be rotated. Sort of reassuring, actually — even those driven by categorically evil principles and convinced they are doing the “right thing” killing innocent people still get hurt by watching others get hurt and die.

    Plus one to that. Taking a life, even under the most justifiable circumstances, tends to mess a person up, unless they are sociopaths.

    Since you seem to be mining the depths of psychology, maybe you could enlighten us as to what encourages such behavior? I believe if you could get to the root cause of the problem it might be more constructive socially. After all, people aren’t born “chickenhawk gun nuts.”

    I’m afraid I’d have to see evidence of your premise for the statement “guilt at having taken so many other lives.”

    My own personal experience, many, many others that I have known and cared for, whether serving in harms way or not suffer from PTSD. Women and children victims of domestic, sexual and physical abuse are not initiators of violence. Auto accident victims didn’t initiate the violence against them. Policemen, firemen and paramedics function in a completely opposite role than the initiator yet often suffer from PTSD. I included a link that is not a “scholarly” article, but one that I think illuminates the circumstances around PTSD.

    Another American gets to go home. What’s the problem?

    It’s only a matter of time before others use drones against the US. Will we like it just as much then? So much for “fighting over there so we won’t have to fight them over here”……

    I think it’s also unconstitutional under the Fifth Amendment’s clause concerning a capital crime and indictment by a Grand Jury.

    “Who said anyone is convinced they could kill someone and not experience emotional consequences??”

    There have been some very glib comments here about shooting the bad guys.

    Whining about “offensive attacks” & turning around & doing the same doesn’t enhance your credibility.
