Should We Invade New Zealand?

Recommended Posts

Invading the Middle Earth has not proved to be a wise policy decision through Ages. And if one seeks seclusion and quietude, why not go elsewhere? It's not like they would be short of sheep there and not everybody likes to have close relations with them.

I reckon Australia and New Zealand should join together and invade New Caledonia instead and announce the creation of the Greater South Pacific Co-Prosperity Sphere. We've been the nice guys for far too long.

The only problem with invading New Zealand is that once it's over you're in New Zealand. Might as well go a bit farther south and invade Antarctica. The only significant difference is there would be penguins instead of sheep.

Some people might appreciate eth difference...shrug....it takes all sorts.:cool:

Of course there's nothing south of Aus apart from the Great White continent - so why not go straight from there?:rolleyes:

but either way - from Aus to NZ, or Aus to Antarctica - you're going to hae fewer Aussies so it's got to be good.:D

If the Kiwis can't be bothered to defend their nation, what good do you Ozzies think it'll do you to take it from them? Clearly not worth the effort. Not worth the effort if it were no effort at all.

Begs a serious question though. With zilch army to speak of, how do the NZSAS get their peeps? Kinda hard learning to ride the SAS bicycle without having the regular army training wheels first, isn't it?

And to put the whole thing in context, it's an ad created for a show called The Gruen Transfer. The show is a comedy based look at the advertising industry. Each week one of the segments involves two rival ad agencies creating a TVC for something that would be "unsellable". In the past they have done ads for stuff like child labour or celibacy.

AFAIK Costa Rica is unique in the world for having no army whatsoever. Their Government abolished it in 1949 and it hasn't bothered with one since. It is also notable (considering its region) that it hasn't had a war, not even a civil or guerilla war, since then.

At least when you wussy Aussies find the Kiwis too tough you have an alternative in Central America. Beware the llamas though, they can give a nasty nip when enraged...

The Costa Rica thing is a bit of a red herring. True, they don't have an army. But they do have some pretty well armed "border police".

Technically the Vatican is unique in not having a defence force made from its own citizenry.
