It seems that in the last two years from around the time John Key signed a brand spanking new partnership with NATO the recruitment of new soldiers went into overdrive. Especially in predominantly Maori areas with sometimes people being blackmailed into signing on with the threat of their welfare check being cut if they didn’t.
I have heard of non stop recruitment videos playing in WINZ offices and I am sure that many of young Maori have chosen an army career as this was considered an honourable path to take. That idea seems to be changing.
Now John Key tells Andrew Little to get some guts and get on the right side in a speech. The sentence reminds me of the “if you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists” speech of George Bush when he announced the attack on Afghanistan after 9/11.
After 15 years of ever spreading war with millions of victims John Keyhas the Gutspa to tell the lleader of the opposition to get some guts. Well he won’t have to wait long. The body bags full of guts and gore will begin to arrive as soon as those poor soldiers land in Iraq to partake in the invasion of Mosul. Another thing we can be sure off is that he will not tell his son or daughter to get some guts and lead by example. The rich and powerful never do.
