John Key and his government is going to retain New Zealand troops in Irag for another 18 months also deploying them to a second military base with the total associated costs now reaching $50million for the New Zealand taxpayer to fork out. He says, according to the Hawke’s Bay Today item of June 21st that the ‘Work in Iraq is not done, that it would be difficult to do nothing when 66 other countries were contributing’.
This is rubbish and must be condemned. Contributing to what?
The disaster impacting Iraq and costing millions of Iraqi lives either dead, maimed or now displaced and homeless is entirely an American war of aggression, an illegal invasion based on lies (‘weapons of mass destruction’ of which there were none) and into which the U.S. has dragged a number of subservient countries like New Zealand that acquiesce to American commands. John Key is one foreign Prime Minister who serves U.S. expectations at our expense.
Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee says we are ‘training’ Iraqi’s to be able to take control of their own lands and fight Islamic State, but this is also a lie. NZ is involved in Iraq because we were pressured to get involved by America so as to make the destruction of this once proud country seem like all of the West (the coalition of the willing) is there fighting terrorism. Rubbish.
The terrorist is the United States itself driven by Washington neocons (predominantly Zionist Jews) with one objective; a destabilised and weakened Middle East being part of the ‘Greater Israel’ policy, part of the original vision enunciated by the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl now promoted by the Israeli government and supported in the U.S. by the Jewish Lobby, an immensely powerful political group in the U.S. politics. Greater Israel consists of an area from the Nile to the Euphrates and involves the exclusion of Palestinians from their own lands and the Jewish settlement in occupied Palestinian lands.
Iraq is predominantly Islamic so which part of Iraqi Islamists are we training? Are they Sunni or Shia and then which sect of these Islamic divisions? Out of the vacuum of destruction delivered by U.S. bombs rose Islamic State, the violent group that the CIA secretly funded for years in Libya and continue to do so now in neighbouring Syria. These are indisputable facts not reported by mainstream to keep us in the dark about American objectives. Among others, it is to grab the oil, oil that is now reported recently contracted by the newly U.S. installed puppet government of Iraq to U.S. oil companies.
I wonder why Gerry Brownlee recently visited Israel in early May? The visit was kept pretty quiet, the Blog site ‘Whale Oil’ being the first to reveal the news. Perhaps to discuss trade? Or perhaps to discuss new farming techniques? It’s doubtful that any of these things were discussed. It is far more likely that Brownlee was there to be ‘bought off’ by the Israeli government to become a strong advocate of continuing war in Iraq and Syria. This is how they operate.
So here we are: New Zealand ‘doing its bit’ helping the big players in their dirty war of attrition in Arab lands where we blame the Arabs for all the wrongs in the world as we crush them one country after another creating crises the world over. Maybe even Brexit is an unexpected outcome to the global elites that is a response to the refugee crisis created by the bombing and destruction of Syria.
Even more importantly, how many more schools or hospitals are New Zealanders forgoing to remain entrenched, indeed trapped into an American war that is none of our doing or business? Our media and the ‘entertainment’ dished up nightly on Television is all about numbing minds to expect war, indeed to glorify war. It is outrageous that we are involved with troops in Iraq training the locals to in fact continue to kill even more of themselves because this work will never be complete. There are much bigger agendas in play, none of which are our business accept to object to these policies of destruction, much less to be part of them. We should indeed ‘choose to do nothing’.
Bring our troops home now and condemn American led hostilities in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, indeed anywhere in the world.
