I’ve written about the infiltration of quackery into military medicine, beginning well over three years ago when I first noticed battlefield acupuncture and noticing how it’s infiltrating the military, thanks primarily to one Col. (Dr.) Richard Niemtzow. Today, I found someone who put it into a video form. Be forewarned, though, that the video contains things that might not be safe for work, such as blood and guts and swearing. But, hey, it is the military:
This video reminds me way too much of my little fictional interlude that I used to introduce my original post about battlefield acupuncture. The only difference was that the ending of my little fictional interlude turned out better than it did in this video.
Col. Niemtzow would be proud.
