The 'Science' of Aliens and three headed Babies

But first, a word from our Sponsor:

If you don't read, hear or watch the news, you are uninformed.  If you do read, hear or watch the news you are dis-informed – to Paraphrase Mark Twain
Believing ANYTHING in the news headlines put out by the Associated Press (AP), (the news source for most media outlets), makes even less sense than believing headlines about Alien abductions and three headed babies. 

In case you did not already know, AP policy allows opinion and speculation to be reported as news in order to compete with Reuters, the other media source that allows speculation and opinion as news.    
AP Headline - UK study: Violence more likely among vets, troops
Does that validate the Anti-War crowd and the Obama administration's myth about Vets being likely terrorists, worse even than the Islamic terrorists man-made disaster mongers, these brave men are keeping from our shores?
But wait!  
One line into the article, we find out that going into combat made NO DIFFERENCE in the rate of violent crime.
 "Instead, a key predictor was violent behavior before enlisting" 
So - drumroll please - violent behavior is a key predictor of more violent behavior.  Yeah! ... huh?
Are you shaking your head now and wondering how much it cost the British Socialist public for that bit of "insight"?  
Logically, since there is no difference in violent crime among Vets vs anyone else and Terrorism is Violent crime - there is no truth to the, vet as a likely "terrorist", scenario.
So what Violence, is this study talking about, that is more likely among Vets? 
Stick and stones can break my bones but words are just as violent?
This study, considered verbal threats as "violence".  
By that standard, elementary schools, at recess, are the most violent places on earth.  lol
According to the World Health Organization (WHO)
Violence is the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against a person, or against a group or community, that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment or deprivation.
Even according to the WHO, violence is not just a verbal threat, but a threat that has a HIGH LIKELIHOOD of actuality.
Risk factors for this "Violence" included getting drunk after returning from combat. 
Getting Drunk and saying stupid things. 
When comparing soldier's "violence" against the rest of the population, their control group was British Crime Statistics.
Not counted or compared are the verbal threats and physical violence at soccer games.  Did you ever watch a soccer game?   Fans tearing down fences, throwing objects.  You tell me if Vets are more dangerous than that.   Nor the 'violence' of words in bars, political arguments and arguments among friends, siblings and neighbors.

Redefining words like 'violence' is the essence of Propaganda, as George Orwell learned from his years at the BBC, who were disseminating war propaganda.
In the scientific world it is publish or perish. Therefore, corners are cut to get headline worthy results by redefining words, manipulating statistics and outright faking of data.
That's why one day coffee is harmful and the next day the best thing in the world for your health.
Junk science.
Ok the study is full of it, so what does the article do?  It bolsters its arguments with speculation from someone who is not even part of the study, mouthing the politically correct line about "Disadvantaged" backgrounds leading to violence.   For further support the reporter quotes the handful of cases of veteran violence in the USA, also NOT PART OF THE STUDY, ignoring all other factors other than being soldiers.. somewhere.
Why is this drivel allowed to be broadcast? 
Because the point of this article is not accuracy as much as it is spreading and reinforcing propaganda, as it is with most "news" articles nowadays.
The scientifically unsupported, implication, of this article, is that the government, (which actually created the poverty in the first place, through promoting a mindset of entitlement, class envy and racial hate and then programs leading to dependency, broken homes, fraud and housing environments, conducive to drugs and crime ), has to interfere, even more, to restore "advantages" and stop those horrible monster troops who return from war against  Muslim  radicals.
