The Gratitude of the Fatherland
SEAL who killed Bin Laden bitter, unaware of health coverage

The Navy SEAL who says he put three bullets in the head of Usama bin Laden is out of work and bitter that he was never told he is still eligible for health care coverage, according to a new report, which the military and Veteran's Administration are disputing.

The hero frogman is bitter as he waits for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to an exclusive story for Esquire by the Center for Investigative Reporting. After quitting just three years short of retirement, he has no health care or pension, he said.

“I left SEALs on Friday,” the unnamed SEAL told author Phil Bronstein last September. “My health care for me and my family stopped at midnight Friday night.

“I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no,” the SEAL told Bronstein, executive chairman of the Center for Investigative Reporting. “You’re out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your sixteen years. Go f--- yourself.”

He'll probably end in some VHS tape with his throat slit and only them he'll be treated like a hero. All western heroes are posthumous and have shitty lives until they die.

As much as I would like to blame the West in such situations, this is nothing new under the sun. Nobody gave a shit about the veterans and the wounded of WWI and many other wars as well. This is because modern armies aren't orders of knighthood, they are rather a tool in the hands of oligarchs, the MIC and the MSM. As a soldier you have nothing to expect from them despite your pay for the time in service, like a mercenary.

Maybe the Navy Seal now will rethink his and his commanders role in the war.

Human life, even that of the own soldiers, was never ever worth a penny for the elites. Soldiers were ever only cannon fodder for higher interests. In the Book "The Magicans' Nephew" by C. S. Lewis, Uncle Andrew and the witch Jadis both tell Digory, that rules and laws are for small people, but that for scientists, rulers or other "higher" people this laws and rules wouldn't count anything because of their important "job".

Heroes are necessary for the system, so they are helded up by the elites. So they can get new soldiers they can blow up in another war...... Therefor the system loves heroes.

The SEAL clubbing continues.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
