Australian government and the destruction of Alkatiri

Wilson's Almanac news and current affairs blog

A media, government and public relations disinfo con job

It seems to me that very few political commentators on the current East Timor crisis, other than John Pilger, seem to have a clue what's going on, nor have noted the economic machinations behind the story of the Australian government and the destruction of Alkatiri. That's why I'm glad I found his article -- originally in Rupert Murdoch's right-wing rag, The Australian, of all places (some pinko editor must have snuck it through)!!

Hint: It's all about Australia stealing East Timor's oil and gas reserves.

Rule of thumb: When all the media and all the politicians, as with one voice, condemn any politician or popular movement, it's time to prick up the ears, strap on the bullshit detector, and do one's homework.
