would'nt ya say?
Following extensive debate, the term Contact Countries was agreed by the Allies in 2004; the following countries currently have this status:
New Zealand (AUSCANNZUKUS)
The New Zealand government sent troops to Afghanistan immediately after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. They have been there ever since.
NZDF personnel make up the NZ Provincial Reconstruction Team (NZ PRT) in Afghanistan. The eighteenth rotation, now led by Dick Newlands, arrived in Afghanistan in April 2011 and will remain in Afghanistan for approximately six months. The government has announced that New Zealand's commitment to Afghanistan will be in place until approximately 2014.www.nzdf.mil.nz...

The fall of Singapore in 1942 showed that Britain could no longer protect its far-flung Dominions. Closer military ties were therefore necessary for New Zealand's defence. With United States entering the war, they were an obvious choice. Links with Australia had also been developed earlier; both nations sent troops to the Anglo-Boer War and New Zealand officer candidates had trained at Australia's Royal Military College, Duntroon since 1911, a practice that continues to this day. A combined Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) was formed for the Gallipoli Campaign during World War I, and its exploits are key events in the military history of both countries.Two members of the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction Team in Afghanistan during 2009New Zealand is a signatory of the ANZUS treaty, a defence pact between it, Australia and the United States dating from 1951. en.wikipedia.org...
15/04/2011 A United States navy helicopter has landed on the deck of the New Zealand navy ship Canterbury in the most significant sign yet of the thaw in military relations.The MH60 Seahawk helicopter conducted flight deck training on the Canterbury on Tuesday as part of a joint humanitarian aid mission to Tonga. Operation commander, US Navy Captain Jesse Wilson, went aboard the Canterbury and a New Caledonian Puma helicopter operating on the multi-role ship transferred Kiwi Defence Force personnel to the USS Cleveland. The two ships are conducting a joint operation to take medical and engineering aid to the Pacific and were off the reef of Niuatoputapu, a small island in Tonga. The fact the two ships are operating together is itself a significant step in the growing military ties between the two countries.
Compare this with numbers in 1901, where 42% of people identified with the Anglican denomination, 23% with Presbyterian, and only 14% with Catholic. At this time 1 in 30 people did not identify with any religion compared with 1 in 3 today. If the current trends continue, Christianity will no longer be the majority religion at the 2011 census.The International Social Survey Programme was conducted in New Zealand by Massey University in 2008.
New Zealand's general abortion rate of 20.1 per 1000 women aged 15-44 remains comparable to slightly earlier figures from the US (19.4) and Australia (19.3) - but far ahead of other countries like Germany (7.3) and the Netherlands (8.6). www.nzherald.co.nz...
Worldwide, about 11% of all women having abortions live in Africa, 58% in Asia and 9% in Latin America and the Caribbean. The remainder live in Europe (17%) and elsewhere in the developed world- Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and the United States (5%).
current worldwide abortion rate of 35 abortions annually per 1,000 women 15-44

That Christianity has been largely co-opted should not obscure the fact that the bad guys have went to extreme lengths to eliminate it. Co-opting is one of those lengths.
Add to that the fact that much of what "everybody knows" nowadays comes straight from the top of the NWO power structure. The acceptance of feminism, homosexuality, socialism, et cetera, these things were and are promoted by people such as the Bilderbergers, CFR, Tavistock and the like. Multiculturalism too, although you can hardly even mention that or debate it at all, even on forums that claim to be about free speech.
Sure there are some legitimate gripes about how people that have called themselves Christians have acted, especially when in power. But like countless millions before us, we're going to realize at some point we're out of the frying pan and into the fire.
