    The fact that a bloke like me has to point this out is a sign we are in deep trouble. I was only a Lance Corporal and my stint in the NZ Army was hardly stellar. Where are all the senior officers??? Why have I not heard a single one of them sounding off about this???Probably too busy living the good life sucking on the taxpayer-tit

    Shame on Y’all

    ‘The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman, and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life.’ Ezekiel 33:1-9
