The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. Herman Göring
The last couple of weeks we have been told by the MSM how the army is demoralised and is loosing personnel in search of a better life all because there is not enough money. We are also told that we need more protection and that with good military men leaving the country we could be in jeopardy as there are not enough of them to defend this country should it be attacked by the … (fill in as desired but most would probably go for the Chinese.)
We also see an increase in Military recruitment ads and as job loss is ravaging entire communities more people will enter into the army.
This is not a coincidence. In the last couple of weeks we have signed two military treaties. One with the NATO and one with the US.
Both the NATO and the US are military organisations and by their very nature they want to spend lots of money on arms and the military. Both the US and the NATO are expanding the empire they are both enforcing to the Pacific and that means bases and arms. It also means that the countries signing up to being part of the empire such as New Zealand and Australia need to spend more on their armies. The US and some of the NATO countries are the biggest arms manufacturers. In fact you might say that the production of military equipment is all that is left of US manufacturing and therefore crucially important to maintain.
Most New Zealanders are by nature not the warmongering types. In fact most are seriously against nuclear arms and feel relatively safe seeing as we are the most isolated country by distance from other countries. I think that most New Zealanders would be shocked to see drones in their air space and even more shocked to know that their army wants them never the less.
So in order to prepare us for the hideous amounts of money our government wants to spend on new arms and military kit we have to be told that the army is demoralised to the point of taking off to the mines in Australia in search of a better life.
Mark my words; In the near future we will also be told that the threat of terrorism is on the increase and that there are credible signs that they are directed against New Zealand. It is already happening in Europe and the US were news paper stories are appearing about how a guy from Norway (yes, your blue eyed blond type) converted to Islam is preparing to attack.
When that happens expect a steep increase in military spending including on predator drones and Depleted Uranium ammunition. Also expect to see the expansion of military bases all ready in New Zealand and a further militarisation of the police.
