It would seem that Australia agrees to let Indonesia do whatever they want to “suppress” the Papuan independence movement; that seems to be one of the points of a recent treaty. Ignore the headline nuclear bollocks, the stuff where we agree to help them suppress activists is far more interesting.
Of course, I don’t know how “evil” these activists are, for all I know it may be that they kill kittens and eat puppies. Plus I’ve only read an SMH report on the treaty, the actual document might be packed full of clauses that water it down and make it nothing more than the usual political fellatio.
Anyway, we can’t let poor old Indonesia loose a whole bunch of mineral and petroleum resources just because the area happens to be full of people who are inconveniently not Indonesian.
If you’re not like me and you’re willing to fight for a cause that is not my cause then I dub you terrorist; you will die.
