‘He was a bloody good bugger’.

What a sad day. Today the news reached us that a NZ soldier has lost his life in the illegal war in Afghanistan and I predict that his funeral will be made into a massive propaganda event. I grief for him his family and friends because he was used in an illegal war of aggression based on a lie and his family and friends will have to miss a young man who was prepared to give his life for them and his country. By definition the sort of people we can not have enough of.

And his death will be used to extend New Zealand’s presence in Afghanistan at the risk of losing more courageous young people in this god forsaken war.

The first headlines indicating as much are already appearing; Top Kiwi soldier died in Afghanistan.

Afghan attack not reason to withdraw to name a few.
