The ‘Timor Rift’ widens

Disgruntled freedom fighters led by Major Alfredo Reinado have attacked the symbolic head of Timor-Leste’s puppet government today. Turncoat president, Jose Ramos-Horta was shot twice during the attack, however, accurate reports of his condition are not available at this stage, though his condition is said to be critical. Puppet Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao has ‘assured’ western media the situation is ‘stable’ in view of the fact he was also targeted and attacked by freedom fighters! A bit less propaganda and a little more realistic, accurate reporting please!

East Timor has been in social and political crisis for some time, a reality that western occupation forces are loath to admit. Prior to today’s attack, now described as a coup attempt, Australian occupation forces had been shot at, however, the incident was played down in order to maintain the charade of stability. Events today clearly portray reality as opposed to western misinformation. The people will continue their struggle until all occupation forces are removed and self-determination is restored.

Viva Timor-Leste!

UN and Australian ‘peace keeping’ forces report that Major Reinado has been shot and killed during the attack; however, confirmation of his death is unavailable at this stage.

Timor-Leste is the El-Dorado of the Western Pacific. The tiny nation of one million sits on billions in oil and gas reserves, which western oil companies covet and seek to exploit! It is for this and other reasons that a symbolic attack on traitorous puppet leaders has been staged.

The people of Timor-Leste did not fight to free themselves from Indonesian rule only to have their nation stolen by western powers and exploited by western (oil) companies.

Australian and UN occupation forces have been installed by the puppet government of Timor-Leste to act as colonial police and to protect western oil interests.

The long suffering people of Timor-Leste have fought long and hard and at great cost in human life to gain their freedom. The people are not inclined to surrender self-determination to anyone; rapacious western interests would do well to read the times and face reality.

Resource rich nations around the globe are in the process of ejecting rapacious Transnationals and US forces from their lands. The days of monopolised media/information, lies, deceit and exploitation are over -- as is Paul Wolfowitz’s tenure at the World Bank!

People today have no choice but to fight for their rights and eject invaders and occupiers. The days of colonial, military and economic slavery are over!


Update:
Ramos-Horta is to be flown by the Australian military to Darwin Hospital for specialist treatment. His condition is obviously grave!
