New Zealand participated in WW1 at Galipoli and later in France.
In WW2 we flew several fighter squadrons and bomber squadrons from Guadalcanal. We fought in North Africa and Italy. Numerous Kiwis also flew for the
RAF or served in the Royal Navy in WW2.
We fought in the Korean War both on the ground and operated both Mustang and Vampite fighters against the North Koreans.
We fought in Vietnam with infantry and artillery units plus logistics squadrons.
We sent naval units in support of the Falklands War.
Our Country sent warships to the Gulf for the first Gulf war and some C-130 Hercules.
We currently have NZ SAS and engineering units in Afghanistan.
The issue is that this Government has wimped out on human rights and after all what is military intervention for ?
It is for the defence of freedoms.
Our Government no longer represents the wishes of the people of our country who generally support Tibetan freedom.
In my opinion our present Government act more like Quislings who would rather trade with modern day Nazis.
This needs to be exposed.
NZ has a long history of being pro human rights, but this must be in question now that dolphins take priority ?
