Max Key Goes To War!

I have it on good authority that John Key is so convinced that we have to rid the world of them raghead terrorists that he has decided to send his son as proof of his patriotic commitment!

In the mean time in the real world here are your chances of being killed by terrorists:

Comparing the CDC numbers to terrorism deaths means (keep in mind that – from here to the end of the piece – we are consistently and substantially understating the risk of other causes of death as compared to terrorism, because we are comparing deaths from various causes within the United States against deaths from terrorism worldwide):

– You are 35,079 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

– You are 33,842 times more likely to die from cancer than from a terrorist attack

Wikipedia notes that obesity is a a contributing factor in 100,000–400,000 deaths in the United States per year. That makes obesity 5,882 to times 23,528 more likely to kill you than a terrorist.

The annual number of deaths in the U.S. due to avoidable medical errors is as high as 100,000. Indeed, one of the world’s leading medical journals – Lancet – reported in 2011:

A November, 2010, document from the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services reported that, when in hospital, one in seven beneficiaries of Medicare (the government-sponsored health-care programme for those aged 65 years and older) have complications from medical errors, which contribute to about 180 000 deaths of patients per year.

That’s just Medicare beneficiaries, not the entire American public. Scientific American noted in 2009:

Preventable medical mistakes and infections are responsible for about 200,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, according to an investigation by the Hearst media corporation.

And a new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety says the numbers may be up to 440,000 each year.

But let’s use the lower – 100,000 – figure. That still means that you are 5,882 times more likely to die from medical error than terrorism.

The CDC says that some 80,000 deaths each year are attributable to excessive alcohol use. So you’re 4,706 times more likely to drink yourself to death than die from terrorism.

In other words the families of those selected to go to Iraq are being asked to sacrifice their sons and daughters, sisters and brothers for absolutely nothing other than making sure John Key stays in the club!

  1. I have no doubt that Key works for the good-old USA, so I’m not surprised by anything he says or does. He’s off to Hawaii once duties done..$$$$$

  2. Thus NZ is exposed as the rotting corpse it is. A war to ‘save democracy’ while removing the democratic process from the house in order to secure the action. Hypocrite key. Slanderer. Liar.
    The club. We are now in ‘the club’. A secret society of 5 eyes..6 with Israel – fighting I S I L who are ‘funded by our friends and allies in the area…”

    Wesley Clark, ex Chief of NATO on CNN. regarding ISIL – states plainly : “…Look…ISIL got funding by our friends and allies in the area…because as people will tell you in the region, you want somebody who will fight to the death, against Hizbollah…you don’t put out a recruiting poster y’know, saying sign up for US, we are making a better world; you go after Zealots, you go after these religious fundamentalists….thats who fights Hizbollah….its like a Frankenstein”.

  3. john rambo key will go over to isil for a weekend and deal to them, then make it back on monday for parliament totally relaxed, and not even mention it, thats they type of leader he is

  4. john key himself will be on the front line fighting against the enemy that his club manufactured by killing arab families which in turn the club are planing to cultivate by killing even more, then call them terrorist when they fight back to really annoy them.
    he did say it would be gutless not to fight the enemy his club manufactured, so he will be there on the front line with his son because hes a real hero – he does watch a lot of rugby

  5. look at the focus it takes now to send troops overseas nearly as long as it did to commit to WW2 it smells of enriched uranium
