On Radio NZ, on 23 October, I was gobsmacked to hear this from  our esteemed leader, John Key, when he spoke in relation to joining the US in some kind of military action against ISIS;

 

“What we’re doing is all humanitarian but if that position was to change, the advice we’ve had is there wouldn’t be a material change to the risk that New Zealanders face.

In other words, we potentially already face some international, regional, and who knows, even domestic risks and those don’t dramatically change.”

 

No “ material change to the risk that New Zealanders face” ? He actually thinks “we potentially already face some international, regional, and who knows, even domestic risks and those don’t dramatically change“!

Has he lost his mind?

We all know that Key is renowned for being “relaxed” and “comfortable”. I guess that’s what holidaying on a beach in Hawaii will do for a person.

But it beggars belief that a man of Key’s supposed education and awareness of world affairs believes  that participating in another American-inspired war would not paint a dirty big bullseye on New Zealand.

He is either (a) grossly ignorant (b) badly misinformed, or (c) playing us for fools.

    The PMs’ comments are disturbing and alarming and also shows a great deal of naivety about the Middle East. One wonders how much his officials and advisors have researched the situation in the Middle East.
    What is more alarming and disturbing is once again the complaint media just accept everything the PM says without critique.
    Do not most of the New Zealand mainstream media understand the ramifications for New Zealand if we engage in another of the US illegal wars.
    Key is allowed so much leeway by a weak media and a lazy ill-informed populace who just accept Key is doing the right thing when in reality he has little interest in New Zealand’s future wellbeing.
    Key is motivated by his friendship with the war mongers Obama, Cameron, Harper and Abbott and will willingly put this nation at risk of terrorism all for his own oversized ego. I despair.
