Air NZ ferries Australian troops to Kuwait...

Further, and this is what prompted my posting, on the TV One coverage of the story, some cowardly little vermin, some pant piddling pissant, suggested that Air NZ's involvement was inappropriate as it could potentially make New Zealand a 'target'. At that point hot tea was sprayed, my cup was slammed on the table and I stormed outside for a smoke. I still have not calmed down.
If they (Islamo-fascists) are that easily goaded (which they are) and if they are that scary (which they are) and if you are that afraid of them (which you SHOULD be) then why isn't our government SUPPORTING THE GODDAMN WAR!?
I wish I had caught the guys name, and in what capacity he made his statement. I'll look at the TVNZ site later to see if I can find out.
Edit: The cowardly, pant piddling, pissant was Keith Locke, Foreign Affairs spokesperson for the Green Party, surprise surprise.
Further Edit: A little about Keith:
His political enemies have referred to him during question period as "Pol Pot" or "the Honourable Member for Cambodia" due to supportive articles he wrote while editor of the New Zealand Socialist Action newspaper about the Khmer Rouge regime under the headline; Cambodia liberated: victory for humanity. Locke has claimed his initial support for the Khmer Rouge was because "...many people thought the Khmer Rouge were an adjunct of the Vietnamese communist forces" and that he thought they "...would be better than the regimes they replaced."
Similarly, while he opposed the 2001 war in Afghanistan to remove the Taliban, he wrote an article (in Socialist Action) entitled "Why workers should support Soviet action in Afghanistan" in 1980.
