I would like to know how the Nexus chooses its "news"

"Psychologist Group Finds Military Health System Needs Assistance
Washington (AP) - Many Iraq war soldiers, veterans and their families are not getting needed psychological help because a stressed military's mental health system is overwhelmed and understaffed, a task force of psychologists found.
...
More than three out of 10 soldiers met the criteria for a "mental disorder", but far less than half of those in need sought help, the report found. Sometimes that's because of the stigma of having mental health problems, other times the help simply wasn't available, according to the task force. And there are special difficulties in getting help to National Guard and Reserve troops, who have been heavily used in Iraq, the report said."
...

I have an idea. how about not starting wars.
