New Zealand Troops to stay in Iraq for another 18 months: John Key

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.

  1. My husband and I immigrated here from the UK in Jan 2016. We left the UK because we have lost faith in our government and the way it has “blindly” followed the US and, as a result, led our homeland to the dogs. Unfortunately, I came to New Zealand wearing rose tinted glasses. I was here for a year stint back in 2006 and was truely taken by what a quiet and peaceful country this was, tucked away in the corner of the world minding its own business. How wrong could I have been?? It appears that this NZ government too is hell bent on “blindly” following the US and this will lead to the biggest tradgdy of all. A country ruined by foreign policies, at held to ransom by overseas investors and in a constant state of ‘high alert’. All troops should be brought home, not just NZ troops. I’m not a born and bred Kiwi, but it seems I hold this country in much higher regard than the people running it.

    1. Well I hope you come to feel a little differently about NZ in time but the fact of the matter is this. The U.S. command subservience the world over. They currently have the power and influence to do this. Bit by bit this is wearing thin and we can only hope that by raising awareness that soon ordinary people will see that they have to resist the hegemony. Regrettably our media is a repeat of American propaganda and lies about almost everything it seems. I repeat, the U.S. is a terrorist state responsible in killing millions around the world and of course increasingly their own people in growing numbers on a daily basis. The horror story 2 candidates for Presidency simply adds to the disdain and rejection of Americanism NZ should be tracking.

  2. I am 100% in agreement with your stance and whole heartily applaud the KiwiWatch rationale. I am, however, a little bit more pessimistic about the notion that raising awareness will bring ordinary people to resist the hegemony. I say this because 2 months ago, after a dinner party my husband and I were asked to leave because I asked my friend, the host, had they heard of WTC 7? There was no heated discussion prior to the question, just that simple question, followed by getting thrown out of their house, never to hear from them again! This is an ordinary kiwi couple, whom I have been friends with for many years. Other Kiwi friends “humour” my views about America but have no inclination to examine them in any meaningful detail. Because of this, I now keep my views to myself, thus I am not raising awareness and the problem perpetuates. To say “this is frustrating” is a major understatement!

    1. Thanks for the comment and I too have personally had learn from similar situations, with close friends too. But this is not stopping me because by not trying to expose the lies I would not be truthful to myself. Learning when to speak and when to shut up is ongoing & realising that for the vast majority of people they are more comfortable with the lies rather than digging for truth even though internally they all know ‘something is wrong or not quite right’ making the step is too uncomfortable.Staying in confusion is the better choice. When you do take the time to think, look at the information about world events that is out there, it ‘does your head in’ because reality is so opposite the media lies we are told. eg. What are the odds/chances of the same (Israeli) camera man filming the Nice truck massacre we all saw on TV and then also being outside the Munich shops filming when the gunman attacked? Coincidence? Bad luck? Lucky? Careless? or something else?
