New Zealand: Hotbed of Terrorism
If you think that New Zealand is just a giant movie set overrun with a lot of sheep- think again!
Sounds like the government there may be taking loony lessons from the Bush Administration.
15 years ago
The fact that Tracicle didn't post this herself leads me to suspect that she may be deeply involved somehow. I know that I risk possible bannination by ripping away the veil of secrecy but the truth is bigger than any one of us. Trust no-one!
They've terrorised me for years!!!
You're either with us, or you're with the pig-hunters.
I just received a message from kamus. He had to leave MoFi, for, uh, happy reasons. Also, he walked into a door. You won't be seeing him any more. Never mention his name; pretend he never existed.
I was in Romney Marsh the other day.
He's a 17th century smuggler. I knew it.
these outdoorsy types eh?
I tend to distrust the bias of a publication that feels it has to post a map to show where New Zealand is. There is a lot of flinging, side-taking, sabre-rattling and spin-shifting going on here at the moment. The centre of the insurrection is a place called Ruatoki (look it up in Google Earth - population about 200) and one tribe called Tuhoe who are making a case for compensation for the white man stealing their land (which they did, of course) Tame Iti was even paid by the government to run "bush survival" course, where you learn to light fires with napalm, and invade cities armed with 50 year old guns. We're all sitting around waiting to find out what sort of case the cops come up with.
New Zealand...that's in Australia, right?
No, rocket88, it's in
, where George Bush just went for that G8 summit.
EdArzakh, that's just what we thought you'd say.
Did I mention the WMD?
Hey, this seems as good a place as any to wantonly display my ignorance and ask: Where was
Half of it is water, and the other half is flooded.
Also inspired the Tappan Zee in the US.
We must not grow complacent in our watch of New Zealand's borders. Remember, in dark years distant to our memory did Sauron the Deceiver make that land his home, and some say that the Shadow may yet return to claim it anew.
If you're given a name like Sauron the Deceiver life really doesn't hold too many options for you, so cut the guy some slack.
Think about the kiwi birds. Ask yourself, are these birds
flightless? Perhaps not. What other lies have these so-called Kiwis been telling us?
I saw the All Blacks play once, and they weren't all black.
I used Kwiw brand shoe polish once, and it WAS all black.
I don't particularly care too much about the police case against Tame Iti and his followers (although most of those arrested were only supporters, with varying levels of outspokenness, and had never shown an indication of violence). I am more concerned about the use of the Terrorism Suppression Act to make early-morning raids against protestors in general and the excessive use of force in breaking into homes to make the arrests. Likewise one of the raids involved storming a school bus (on which there was, fortunately, only one teenager along with three adults, none of whom were suspects). Hm, maybe I've paid more attention and care more than I realised.
Do New Zealand police commit
like American police do?
I plan to lead a team that will invade New Zealand so that I can impress Jodie Foster.
just in case that comment was not immediately understandable, here's
Haha, you're old!
/didn't need to check the link to get the joke
The Terrorism Suppression Act
