East Timor

Howard's fault 

AUSTRALIA is "absolutely responsible" for the East Timor crisis because it pushed so hard for independence but withdrew before the country was stable, a member of Indonesia's parliamentary committee on foreign affairs has declared.
Breaking with Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda's line that East Timor's problems were its own affair, Amris Hasan said Australia's intentions in the former Indonesian province were "never innocent" and that Canberra was paying for its regional ambition.

"Indonesia has no responsibility for this mess, but Australia does. East Timor really shouldn't be independent at all - they were not ready for it - but one of the reasons they are is because Australia pushed for that."

Hmm-when will Oz want regime change in PNG?

I assume it will be if/when we take charge of our own affairs and stop letting the resource extraction countries rip us off. Like the gas pipeline to Oz to create Aussie jobs and help Aussie development while the customary landowners above the gas remain pretty much as they have for thousands of years, even after the gas companies have come, taken what they wanted, then left.
