No Pity

In Canada, veterans disproportionately suffer from alcoholism, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and homelessness. I have no pity for them. When they enlisted for Afghanistan, they knew perfectly well Afghanistan had not attacked Canada or any of our allies. They knew Afghanistan had no means to attack Canada. They knew they were behaving analogously to the Nazis invading Poland. Why were they so eager? the money, the adventure and the opportunity to rape and kill without consequences. They deserved far worse consequences than homelessness.
