Veterans suffer again (SMH November 2, p5). Soldiers have been sacrificed by nations for commercial windfalls forever. Our own were no different these last 120 years.

Unprotected by the wisdom of age, their youthful ideals and courage condemned them to senseless slaughter. If they return chronically traumatised and unfit for work they may usefully contribute further to establishment fortunes by rhythmically feeding poker machines in lonely, empty temples.
