The first thing I would do is draft all those Labor Party members into the military. It would be only fair...

      What have you got against the Labour Party?

        They cut the RNZ Army, Navy and Air Force down to nothing but have plenty of cash to spend on touchy feeling social programs. Labor has slashed Defense so they should go out and show how to defend the country with next to nothing.

        I don't mind spending some money on some programs if they give you back a respectable return on your investment. The Armed Forces though are what you have protecting the country. Aren't the citizens worth defending?

        I feel the same way about the American Government and our Armed Forces. We spend a much larger percentage of the GNP than NZ does.

          Yes, but they are our blithering idiots to be retrained as we see fit. On the other hand, they did deploy them to Afghanistan, have persisted with our peace-keeping activities per the UN, and tried to modernise and rationalise the armed forces. Being a small nation, big ticket items, such as naval vessels, can seriously skew apparent yearly spends. Another problem is that military equipment is not cheap, rarely works as advertised, and the suppliers screw you for parts. I would like to see a greater spend on such things as naval patrol and recce craft (air and sea) and a revival of the strike capability of the air force, but who listens to me?

            Brod,

            Just the fact that it is being discussed in a public forum means it is not being swept under a rug. Blithering idiots always seem to think what they do is special and should be approved by all. It can't get fixed if no one brings it up.

              I don't want to buy it lol, and it's not really necessary for the thing we're doing.
              A wild liberal appears! Conservative uses logical reasoning and empirical evidence! It's super effective! Wild liberal faints.
