Most types of war involve war crimes. New Zealand has some questionable war crime history. Killing of Maori tribesmen to take their land seems to have happened in the early 1800's. During WWII at Minqar Quim , Egypt , there was a mass slaughter of German doctors and wounded Germans by New Zealand soldiers that was hushed up. Supposedly in Afghanistan during Operation Burnham , there were innocents killed by New Zealand soldiers. Those were just a few that popped up when you Google New Zealand war crimes. History gets real murky when it's written by the winners of the war. Not saying when you read about war crimes that they didn't happen , just that we should look into our own countries history before pointing out other countries crimes.
