Yes, sure we really do need all this military hardware in NZ … after all it’s all rolling out across the US as well. Key did quite a bit of footwork on that front as I recall, oiling the war machine with his (expensive) celebrations in Auckland. And now as we have the global agenda 21/30 unfolding right in front of our eyes, and looming fascist plans for global vaccination among other things, well as Trump himself said, he will call on the military to assist with that. Adern’s given quite a few millions we can’t afford (but no worries they’ll just conjure up some more out of thin air to cover it) and well, what’s a few billion for tanks and things? We sure need those more than we need homes for the homeless don’t we, given the other part of the govt sold a quarter of them off to their property developer mates. But no worries again, Adern will just keep popping them into motels well at least it makes it look like something’s being done. Meanwhile whatever happened to the most recent suicide stats I heard they disappeared off the MOH website just before the cv lockdown. Anybody know? Guess they knew it would escalate for some in such trying and stressful times … especially those whose businesses hit the wall, or those who really were afraid of the pandemic that was predicted to kill off millions.
Enjoy your military hardware peeps. You might well see some of it rolling down your street one day soon. EWR
