Letter To U.S. Embassy: Arrest of Bruce Hubbard


Arrest of Bruce Hubbard

Letter To the staff of the US Embassy in New Zealand,

Re: Arrest of Bruce Hubbard for telling it how it is

You have picked the wrong country if you think you can use the NZ police to doing your bidding.

Many people of Aotearoa New Zealand have a long and proud history of standing up to global bullies like the United States Government.

Somewhat because of the small size of the New Zealand Government the working and middle class of this country tend to enjoy far more freedoms in comparison to their US counterparts, and that means we have far more to lose.

If you have a problem with someone telling you that your government has used Napalm while on this murderous rampage it calls the “War on Terror” I suggest you take a look at the following news articles:

• Officials confirm dropping firebombs on Iraqi troops: results are ‘remarkably similar’ to using napalm http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/military/20030805-9999_1n5bomb.html

• US rejects German napalm bombing report http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4396.htm

• Napalm by another name: Pentagon denial goes up in flames http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/08/08/1060145870882.html

Mark my words, you have picked the wrong fight!
