John Key and National did not campaign on sending New Zealanders to war, committing our country to a battle that is so much bigger than ISIS. I never once heard any of them mention it, but of course they were lying. Clearly the intention all along was to send troops, as I believe this to be part of our “5 eyes” obligation that John Key has us tied up in, where he has to keep his masters happy at the sacrifice of our country’s reputation. ISIS are not your average type of terrorist, these guys are the worst of the extreme, they are lawless, ruthless, and they are many. New Zealand could now be fairly and squarely in their sights if and when John Key sends in our troops. Mark my words, this country will be forever damaged after that. All we need to do is look to Britain, Australia and the USA and look how their involvement in other countries wars has led to a surge in terrorist activity at home. They have become targets of hate now, it has changed the way its citizens live their lives, forever. And it will continue as terrorist’s become smarter and more invisible.
So let me ask you this National voters, as you were the ones who gave John Key his mandate to commit to war, do you really believe that it won’t bring terrorism here? (Please tell me you thought about this before voting!) It will, history shows us it will.
National has officially been in power for two days, and look what is already on the table – war. Imagine what could be next. I live in utter dread at the thought of what massive irreparable international damage this once strong, bold and proud country will endure under this National Government, never mind the cost to us, the citizens. I still find it hard to believe that the country I love and it’s people chose this. What have we done…..we’re about to find out.
