Forget the cliche hippie, student anti-war activists. New Zealand’s new breed of those criticizing the deployment of New Zealand troops into the Middle East are those who have been there, done that, and don’t want New Zealand to go down the same path again.
Watch as Ron Mark, NZ First MP and ex-Army Major slates National on sending troops to Iraq; “The people who have the loudest voices when it comes to deploying people into theaters of war are those who have never worn a uniform, and those who never want to. And very often you find they won’t let their sons or daughters go either. So button it, Mr. Goldsmith. Button it”.
