F*** the Invictus Games
The Invictus Games are bullshit. We dump public funds into these ridiculous games in order to "celebrate our heroes". Bullshit. The Invictus Games, while it may appear noble, is at the heart more war worship. There is nothing glamorous about war or being a soldier. If we stopped celebrating this s*** and calling them heroes then maybe we'd have fewer people coming back all f***** up. The average citizen doesn't appreciate that war WILL f*** you up. If you come back without any physical or psychological scars then count yourself lucky. I feel bad for veterans in wars of the past (WW1, WW2 and prior) because our ancestors were too ignorant of international affairs to know what they are getting into. Potential soldiers of today don't have that excuse to fall back on. You join the military today you should know what you are getting yourself into. Stop spending money on glorifying war and spend it on honest recruitment advertising. Most of all, and even though they should have known better when they signed up there should be way more money spent on proper healthcare and housing for veterans.
