So Mr Key claims a peaceful candle lit vigil outside his home to protest his Government’s handing over of intel to the Americans for drone strikes that have killed 4000 people so far – 200 of them children is “not really cricket’?
Really? Not cricket? That’s your comment is it? As someone who was at the protest, let me tell you what isn’t cricket Prime Minister. Giving the US intel to help decide who they will assassinate minus any court proceedings is “not really cricket” Mr Key. The innocent mothers and children and men who perish because of this remote controlled death is “not really cricket” Mr Key. That you seem to be more than happy to throw a NZ citizen into the drone strike list for political cover when you were ramming through your mass surveillance legislation last year is “not really cricket” Mr Key.
We now know as of last week from Wikileaks that Afghanistan is being targeted by 5 eyes and everything recorded (which helps explain how the NZDF spied upon journalist Jon Stephenson), so our GCSB is most certainly involved and responsible.
Fellow NZers, we may not pull the trigger but we sure as hell point the gun. Our taxpayer dollars are going into an invisible war that murders people minus any actual court trial or judicial integrity. That makes us all responsible and a candle lit vigil against such immoral, unethical and possibly international law breaching military violence is the least we can collectively do.
Let’s cut a deal Mr Key, I won’t stand outside your house holding candle lit vigils if you stop telling the Drone strikes who to kill.
Key’s “Not really cricket” comment is the height of laid back fascism. We’re not talking cricket you spineless American golf caddy, we are talking about an unethical manner of waging war against a country we haven’t even declared war upon.
