Our military men and women are not there to defend our country, they are there to help those who need it and if needed defend those who can't defend themselves. Soldiers have died, family and friends are hurting, part of grief is blame and the PM is an obvious target, even more so thanks to other politians who are pointing at him, making the hurt and disrespect worse. We should stay until our original pull out date, not run away and whimper that we were leaving early anyway. Why give a Haka if we are going to run away, what's next -'Kia Kaha'(but only if it's safe). I lost Army brothers while over seas, we brought them home, we cried and carried on with the job, we have never forgotten them, never will.

Key is once again meeting with the soldier’s families personally which is a difficult task - just ask the police who have to visit people who die in accidents and by natural cause every day. We are there because we have an alliance with other countries to "do out part" not to get into politics around the war. You want the answer - since recorded history people have been warring in the name of religion. My god is right and yours is not. And guess what - their god is right too. Their belief in their religion and equivalents to the Christian bible (All 14 versions - take your pick) means while the UN discuses issues until they are blue in the face others jus war. There is also a hell of a lot of money to be made making killing machines especially in the US so any excuse is a good excuse. There is you answer plain and simple religion and money.
