Les Baty, [ The Tri­bune 29/06] the Iraq in­va­sion was singly lead by Amer­ica on false pre­tenses. All re­search since that decade-ago ‘‘weapons of mass de­struc­tion’’ as­ser­tion show, like all wars, it was a re­source grab.

That’s oil. In all the years of Sad­dam Hus­sein we never saw the atroc­i­ties that con­tinue on a daily ba­sis thanks to Amer­ica’s de­lib­er­ate chaos wreck­ing strat­egy. John Key, of course, doesn’t care or he wouldn’t have spent his life-mak­ing mul­ti­mil­lions bank­ing on the wars needed to fill the de­sires of the ul­tra rich. And it’s only tax­pay­ers that pay for bring­ing body bags home, so no skin off Key’s nose. The writer also men­tions Palmer­ston North refugees rad­i­cal­is­ing. That can hap­pen to any­one, refugee or not, who feels slighted and iso­lated. The so­lu­tion to stop­ping ter­ror­ism is to stop us­ing NZ mil­i­tary to prop up cor­po­ra­tions in­vad­ing coun­tries to make riches by killing in­no­cent peo­ple .
