    War is a bad thing, particularly when someone is killed or loses a limb. But the government hasn't completely ignored its wounded veterans. Brendan Morrocco lost both arms and both legs when his armored vehicle was hit with an explosive device in Iraq.

    Recently, Morrocco was given a double-arm transplant. Read more here ----> Link To Double Arm Transplant

    Good for him! The Army is paying for this "restorative" surgery. Guess the government isn't all bad, after all.

    Well, if you want to give the government credit for the restoration, given them credit for the destruction, too.

    Meantime, fantastic story, inspiring spirit in that young man and the medical people who are restoring him.  Thanks for posting it.

    Current global warming temperature trend: 0.05ºC per decade, plus or minus 0.1ºC (source: UN IPCC AR5) ...Yes, the error rate is higher than the estimated rate of change.

    "Anthropogenic global warming is a proposed theory whose basic mechanism is well understood, but whose magnitude is highly uncertain. The growing evidence that climate models are too sensitive to CO2 has implications for the attribution of late-20th-century warming and projections of 21st-century climate. If the recent warming hiatus is caused by natural variability, then this raises the question as to what extent the warming between 1975 and 2000 can also be explained by natural climate variability." --Dr. Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology

      You're welcome, RB.

      As I said, "War Is A Bad Thing..." I agree that the government would have done far better not to have sent our soldiers in harm's way in the first place. Had I my druthers, Mr. Morrocco would still be a civilian with all four of his natural limbs attached the way God made them. And Geo'ge Dubya Bush would not have started a meaningless "revenge" war.

      And therein lies the dilemma...

       

      War is a horrible thing, but it does spur advances in medicine and technology.

        While I'm happy to see that he received the transplants, shouldn't we be outraged that this man was mutilated in an unjust war engaged by our government without provocation and under a torrent of lies? To Hell with crediting the US government with anything good in this regard.
