Good find buddy, here is a link to the story on the New Zealand Herald site.
This is quite freaky, I have had confrontations with a New Zealander on this board, and having visited NZ at the beginning of the year for a month I
have come to love the place very much and it's remoteness from the world's problems.
Anyway, while I was watching our Airday display here in England today they did an assault simmulation with pretend terrorists and for some reason the
thought crossed my mind of what would New Zealanders reactions be if they were affected directly by terrorists like many other countries in the world.
I specifically thought about plane attacks on landmarks (due to memories of 9/11), obviously the Sky tower (which I have been up and it is
magnificent) as it is extremely well known and the tallest building in Auckland. I wondered if it would change the attitude of people like the guy I
have had problems with on the War against Terror so to speak.
Anyway, I felt pretty guilty about thinking such things and thought how terrible I would feel if it did happen, so this event is pretty sketchy in my
mind I must say. I'm just glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
