East Timor's "Sudden Rebellion"
Wayne Madsen – Wayne Madsen Report
May 24, 2006 -- The current rebellion in East Timor, where significant off-shore oil reserves have been
discovered, threatens to weaken that nation's independence, which came at a tremendously bloody cost. One major opponent of
East Timor is World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz, a human vampire that would like to retaliate against the new nation for
its successful independence fight against Wolfowitz's chums in Indonesia, the nation where he served as US ambassador and
where he helped coordinate US military assistance for Indonesian counter-insurgency troops who massacred over 100,000 Timorese.
Malaysia, New Zealand, Portugal, and Australia have pledged to send troops to put down the rebellion, which has all the markings
of a "made in Washington and Houston" destabilization effort to get at Timor's oil.
Just after Australia Prime Minister John Howard's trip to see Bush
in Washington: a major rebellion occurs in oil-rich East Timor. Cause and effect? Bet on it.
May 25, 2006 -- More on East Timor's "sudden rebellion." According to Australian sources, East Timor's
long sought independence is in severe jeopardy as a result of collusion between the United States, Australia, Indonesia, and
the World Bank under pro-Indonesian president Paul Wolfowitz. More astounding are reports that Indonesian intelligence has
thoroughly penetrated the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian Secret Intelligence Service
(ASIS), by using blackmail techniques involving pedophilia and bribes. These techniques have also been used to target former
Australian and U.S. ambassadors and other diplomats and military personnel assigned to Indonesia. Wolfowitz is a former U.S.
ambassador to Indonesia.
Australian sources report that Woodside, Australia's largest oil and natural gas company, has been playing hardball
recently with East Timor's government over disputed oil blocks in the Timor Sea. Woodside has also been active in oil deals
in Iraq's northern Kurdistan region, a major reason for Australia's troop deployment to that war-torn nation.
Fighting continues between loyal East Timorese government troops and rebel troops loyal to Maj. Alfredo Reinado,
who is said to have been supported by secret contracts, arms, and training supplied by covert Australian private military
contractors with a wink and a nod from the Bush and John Howard administrations. Bush and Howard met in Washington just prior
to East Timor's military rebellion. Australian sources report that the scenario is the same as employed by Autralian neo-colonialists
in the civil war-plagued Solomon Islands: secretly support a rebellion, force the government to call on Australian military
assistance, and then declare the country a "failed state" and permanently establish a military and political presence in the
Australian neo-colonialists (operating on behalf of Bush neo-cons)
target East Timor's oil, launch a rebellion against East Timor's government
East Timor's government led by Xanana Gusmao, wise to this Australian ploy, a first denied entry to Australian
troops, instead calling on help from Malaysia (as a counter to Indonesia) and Portugal (one of the few nations East Timor
can trust). However, after the denial of Australian troop entry, Gusmao witnessed a drastic upturn in the rebellion by ex-East
Timorese military rebels that directly threatened the entire East Timor government with a coup. The East Timor executive was
then forced to accept Australian troops, which are now pouring into the country ahead of troops from Malaysia, Portugal, and
Quietly looking on is Indonesia, which hopes that a new government in East Timor beholden to the multinational
oil industry will give former President Suharto's family's oil firms, trading firms that deal with the state-owned Pertamina,
lucrative deals for East Timor's off-shore oil blocks. Meanwhile, big oil has now re-introduced war to East Timor, a nation
that lost 100,000 of its people in a brutal war with Indonesia, supported by the past Republican administrations of Ford,
Reagan, and Bush I.
