The world has changed. As Dorothy said in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ …”Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas any more”
Yet again we’re seeing someone with a penchant for totalitarianism rise to power off the back of popular discontent with a political establishment. Lenin, Mussolini and Hitler all pulled the same shit. So now that the US is run by a nutter, or a cabal of nutters, is it legitimate to suggest pressure be put on the NZ government to withdraw from ANZUS?
See, Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s Chief Political Strategist said in March 2016 – “We’re going to war in the South China Sea in five to 10 years, there’s no doubt about that. They’re taking their sandbars and making basically stationary aircraft carriers and putting missiles on those…”
Taking him at his word, I’m asking how we wanna go down folks?
Presently, NZ only has a partial involvement in the alliance – making it all the easier to can it – pull the plug and be done with it.
