As the Sydney Invictus Games come to a close,  perhaps unsurprisingly, media coverage didn’t address an important question. And it’s this:  why are arms manufacturers sponsoring an event for people disabled by injuries of war?

In a provocative and thought-provoking piece, anti-war activist Nick Deane asks this very question. And he also asks about the victims of those wars.  Those “who it must be said  were never even capable of threatening Australia.”
