With the globe gearing up to yet another middle eastern conflict pushing thoughts towards a WWIII scenario, it seems rather inconveniently timed for parties and individuals that want New Zealand to stop playing its part in global and domestic security.
The Prime Minister says he is seriously concerned about New Zealanders joining the terrorist group Islamic State.
John Key told Newstalk ZB’s Leighton Smith the Government was aware of a small group of Kiwis who may pose a threat.
I suspect that those are the sort of people that the government gets a search warrant organised for, and then puts them under surveillance. Â As if it needs saying – to protect the rest of us.
“They are brutal, they are highly sophisticated, they’re well organised and they’re spreading out.
“We are not immune, so we know there are foreign fighters fighting overseas and we know and can identify at least a reasonably sized that group that want to leave and join that cause,” he said.
Mr Key has said in the past that the Government had concerns about New Zealanders returning home after fighting with foreign rebel groups as they could be a terrorist threat.
Mr Wrongly Wrongson (Aka Martyn Martin Bradbury) and his technology sugardaddy Kim Dotcom wanted to get rid of the GCSB. Â The Green Party moaned and moaned over a “New Zealander” indiscriminately killed while accidentally walking under a US drone minding his own business.
These people either directly want to run this country, or they want to be part of making the rules that we live by. Â Even though National won fairly comfortably, we were only a few percentage points, a sunny day and an absent Kim Dotcom away from having these people in charge.
I hate to think what a Labour/Green government would do when faced with ISIS threats on home soil.
