    ‘Get some guts’…said U.S lapdog John Key!
    So what has this coalition of the willing achieved in Afghanistan,except death and destruction.
    The Soviet occupation that failed should have been a lesson/
    All that rare earths and minerals,and the envelopement strategy ,must be really important.

    “Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has ordered Defence Force bosses to respond urgently to dangerous firing ranges in Afghanistan, but revealed it will still be years before they are safe.

    Ardern called in the Chief of Army, Major General John Boswell, to firmly lay out her expectations, only 24 hours after the release of the Stuff Circuit documentary Life + Limb.

    And in another development, Defence broke its silence – under pressure from the prime minister – with Boswell fronting for an interview with Stuff Circuit in which he said: “I feel for the people who are still suffering and I hope we can get that place into a state where they can get on with their lives.” ”
