Prime Minister John Key: Isis fight ‘price of the club’
Prime Minister John Key says New Zealand’s likely military contribution to the fight against Islamic State “is the price of the club” that New Zealand belongs to with the likes of the United States, Australia, Britain and Canada in the intelligence alliance known as Five Eyes.
In his strongest hint yet that the Cabinet will approve a deployment of troops to train Iraqis alongside Australians, Mr Key in an interview with the BBC drew heavily on New Zealand pulling its weight as part of “a club”.
…we will be allying ourselves with some of the most brutal regimes in the region who are all playing each other off against one another to suck up to America?
How loathsome a reason to go to war, ‘because our mates are going’.
Remember, this was a war that before the election Key wasn’t sending us into, now after the election, we are all off to war.
For every bomb we guide to be dropped on a target, we will only create 10 more terrorists.
