    like the International Criminal Court, yes

    Which is why English's decision is the dumbest he could make. NZDF being indicted in the ICC is a hundred times worse than being investigated in NZ by a Commission of Inquiry.

    I wonder if anyone's checked whether the supposed insurgents were removed from any wanted lists after this raid, or whether they were listed as killed in any other, later raids. If NZSAS were working from good intel, they should have names...

    right now I imagine the comms team and/or PR peeps at NZDF are feeling pretty good about this skirmish

    Except that they put Keating in a position where he basically lied, while proclaiming integrity. Not a clever thing to do to the boss.

    Going by his previous predictions, Johan Galtung is predicting that America could be in for a Soviet-grade downfall.

    The further they let Trump go, the worse it's going to be.

  • Hard News: The long road to Hit and Run,

    Something that is really telling, from a meta-perspective, is the imagery that the Herald are using of Keating. It almost screams "do not trust this angry man!"

    After reading that, I think some comms idiot gave Keating appalling advice. JS makes it clear that the two villages named in the book are part of the area that Keating names. Someone's in trouble at NZDF...

    After reading Jon Stephenson's rebuttal, I think some comms idiot gave Keating appalling advice. JS makes it clear that the two villages named in the book are part of the area that Keating names. Someone's in trouble at NZDF...
