VIDEO: New Zealand’s unlikely anti-war voice, Ron Mark destroys National.

Forget the cliche hippie, student anti-war activists. New Zealand’s new breed of those criticizing the deployment of New Zealand troops into the Middle East are those who have been there, done that, and don’t want New Zealand to go down the same path again.

  1. That’s a misleading title. He’s talking about a contingency plan for a captured soldier which has nothing to do with the anti-war argument. Never in his speech does he suggest that he is against sending troops. He is stating the obvious which is that NZ government is not prepared for what might or might not happen in the grand scheme of things.
