THE US, AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA ARE LOCKED IN A DEVIL’S PACT FOR OIL

The US, Australia and Indonesia are locked in a Devil’s Pact to extract oil from East Timor. That’s what the invasion and the incredible diplomatic shenanigans of the past 30 years have been all about. It’s strange that in all the reporting of the East Timor trouble lately there has been no mention of oil, despite well over 200,000 East Timorese being previously murdered over it. For a time it was the only country in the world with a falling population rate. Australia and Indonesia have pulled so many swifties to get their hands on the oil. They have even done deals among themselves (remember Gareth Evans doing a deal with Indonesian Foreign Minister while in the air over Timor) while totally ignoring East Timor. (Of course it has now been decided by the UN that the oil in the Timor Sea is East Timor’s.)

The earlier strategy from Australia was to agree to help remove the Indonesia military from East Timor but in 1999 they allowed – by delaying entering East Timor by several days – the murder of 1,700 dissidents, women and children included, and the complete destruction of all of Indonesia’s infrastructure, mainly the delivery of power, water, transport etc and it has not been replaced. This was punishment for the East Timorese voting for independence in 1999. And it was all about oil.

Now we have decided to be more subtle, having a loony army officer attempt to assassinate the country’s leaders.

And now Indonesia has revealed what a bogus and immoral country they are ( and Australia is just as guilty). They have freed all the Indonesians responsible for the massacres and destruction of 1999. All those army officers were blameless. Notice how Australia is not complaining about the legal scandal. We won’t of course unless the major players, the US decides that it is all too blatant. There is a precedent for that. The right wing Ford Foundation was the first conservative organisation to speak out on the human rights infringements in East Timor after the invasion – an estimated ten years after the event. But it was enough to begin turning the US and Australia around, slowly, so that a “spin” solution could be found.

The eventual spin solution occurred in 1999. How do we know it was spin? because Australia later attempted to defy a UN ruling on the illegality of Australia extracting the oil from a southern tip of the oil field they claimed was in Australia’s territory. It was discovered it wasn’t so now we’re trying to starve and criminally neglect the East Timorese while pretending we’re trying to save the country. See My novel Cleaning Up published by Sceptre (Hodder and Stoughton) in 1993 WHICH STATED THAT UNDER THE GUISE OF SAVING EAST TIMOR THE US, AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA WERE ATTEMPTING TO DESTROY IT.
