Groveling in  Washington before US president Obama NZ Prime minister John Key used the mass murders  in Norway to ingratiate himself, stating:

”If it is an act of global terrorism then I think what it shows is that no country, large or small, is immune from that risk and that’s why New Zealand plays its part in Afghanistan as we try and join others like the United States to make the world a safer place.”

Norwegian police apprehended  right-wing christian Norwegian national Anders Behring Breivik, for the shooting massacre and bombing.

Labour leader Phil Goff said Mr Key should check his facts before making political claims.

”It’s obvious the prime minister was keen to justify our presence in Afghanistan and made an assumption that has since been proven to be absolutely incorrect,” he said.

The comments were ”premature” and ”unfortunate”.

John Key is a good little servant of imperialism but  in relation to Afghanistan he can claim no monopoly of  ”premature” and ”unfortunate”. 

Phil Goff was a central member of the Labour government who dispatched troops to Afghanistan within hours of the US invasion.

The killings of innocent people in Norway are a terrible tragedy. As are the killings of innocent people in Afghanistan by New Zealand troops, courtesy  the New Zealand Labour/Alliance and National governments.
