Come Home - NZ Army tribute

New Zealand rapper Konflikt has posted a tribute to the members of the New Zealand Defence Force who have been killed, especially the five killed in the past two weeks. I think the video is very effective, and so is the song. It’s a nice tribute.

I think the sense of proportionality in the US v NZ is just different. The US just had its 2000th KIA in Afghanistan, and it has been accelerating. Not to mention the increased number of suicides.

Proportionality is definitely different, but that leads, among other things, to Kiwis having a keen awareness of each loss. Sadly, that gets harder to have when casualty numbers rise.
