... mineral resources that is

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


There is a small group of Islands a little to the east and south of PN-G where cannibals live happily shrinking heads and practising voodoo. They love life, respect death and deal with natural catastrophes as they have done for thousands of years.

They eat well, breeding goats, pigs and fowl and grow an array of vegetables to supplement an abundance of seafood, paw paws and coconuts.

I had occasion to spend some time with them while conducting search and rescue missions in the area. Their culinary skills surpass that of any urban restaurateur.

There is no finer example of the human race than an indigenous native unaffected by modern values. Kids flash brilliantly white teeth, women’s black hair glistens in the sun, yet there is no fluoride added to their water, no shampoos or hair conditioners, just coconut soap and charcoal.

These magnificent people will remain part of their pristine environment for a thousand more years, simply because they possess nothing of value to foreigners.

West-Papuan natives lived a similar idyllic lifestyle... that is until men from other lands, as far away as Britain, discovered copper, gold and gas below their gardens and made friends with Indonesia, supplying it with arms to kill hundreds of thousands of those who wanted to keep their land and develop a proud nation from their mineral wealth.

But mere natives could not be afforded such a luxury, so West Papua became a lawless Indonesian killing field without any international penalty or oversight.

Britain and the US could not be seen to be conducting the genocide of a potential nation of people, nor could Australia, who also had a dirty finger in the minerals pie.

Mines have poisoned rivers and moon-scaped vast areas of West Papuans’ homelands. (pictured is West Papua’s Grasberg mine, one of the world’s largest gold mines). No compensation to the natives... only billions in payola going into the Indonesian Government’s coffers. Natives’ complaints are simply silenced with a hail of bullets.

UK PM, David Cameron, when visiting Indonesia in 2012, said, “Indonesia has transformed itself in the past decade into one of the world’s most important democracies, with a free media and elections. The military no longer plays a role in politics, but fulfils its proper role defending the country from external attack.” What a load of British bullshit uttered on behalf of the massive British Petroleum company!

There is no more brutal a military than Indonesia’s when allowed to occupy a region and routinely slaughter natives who have merely demanded a right to self-determination. Yet the West fawns over so-called “progress” made by the world’s “foremost emerging democracy”.

When the Suharto dictatorship fell 17 years ago, Britain’s Labour Party discarded its arms embargo and allowed British-built aircraft to be used to slaughter the people of East Timor from the air.

Other arms companies then began trading with Indonesia for the first time in more than a decade once they realised the extent of the area’s mineral wealth.

With the Timorese invasion eventually having been settled in favour of Timor’s sovereignty, the Indonesian militia kept their guns trained on West Papua. They remain there, raping, torturing and killing hundreds of thousands of innocents with complete impunity.

Australian-supplied helicopters were used to kill 5,000 highland natives with no more than bows and arrows for protection, yet no reports surface because no journalists are permitted entry to West Papua.

According to the World Bank, West Papua’s regional GDP is 50% higher than the national average while the people living there are among the poorest in all Oceania.

The Bali two will be forgotten by week’s end with Australia returning to its craven support of this decadent Islamic nation, gifting it hundreds of millions in unneeded aid... aid that was spent on building the very madrassas that schooled and trained the Bali bombers.

Contrary to what Abbott believes, Indonesia is no threat to Australia, neither in a military nor a trade sense. Indonesia has no middle class economy, only the very corrupt rich and the very indigent poor who have no bridge to improvement.

Indonesia maintains only loose trade alliances with its neighbours via ASEAN and no ability to deploy a meaningful military force from 18,000 disparate islands. The corrupt rich of Islamic nations will never fight and the poor neither know how to nor do they want to.

The bluff continues to Indonesia’s credit and to our shameful discredit.

It’s hard to trust the sincerity of Tony Abbott’s Aboriginal conscience when he openly supports the genocide of another indigenous people who are nearby and equally linked to their lands.

All trust in Labor died with Whitlam and the Balibo five.

Australians with a conscience should be concerned that this genocide of a beautiful people continues.

... but they should be horrified that Australia is openly supporting it.


If "Indonesia has no middle class economy", who owns those cars that cause daily gridlock in Jakarta and other major cities?

M-- I told the horse to use the old Russian cure for piles, to stick a carrot up his ass for a few days, and then get a horse ???? to eat the carrot, and the combination of carrot juice, and the horsed tongue should work. What I did not tell him was a donkey is better for this treatment , but I was worried about an ass and the big ass getting together in that it might get to get to a full blown boom da da boom.

One World Religion: Former Israeli President Proposes Pope to Head ‘UN for Religions’
Can you imagine any way to bring a tumultuous world under a one world religion?
This is a good head start.
A few months back, former president Shimon Peres met with the Pope at the Vatican and proposed that the Pope head up a UN for religions.
Via The Jerusalem Post:
But the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create a UN-like organization he called “the United Religions.”
Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.
“In the past, most of the wars in the world were motivated by the idea of nationhood,” Peres said. “But today, wars are incited using religion as an excuse.”
Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed to reporters that Peres had pitched his idea for “the United Religions” but said Francis did not commit to it.
“The pope listened, showing his interest, attention, and encouragement,” Lombardi said, adding that the pope pointed to the Pontifical Councils for Interreligious Dialogue and for Justice and Peace as existing agencies “suitable” for supporting interfaith peace initiatives.
That meeting in September was the third in a four-month period. In an interview in the Catholic Magazine Famiglia Cristiana, Peres also called for the Pope to lead the inter-religious organization in order to curb terrorism: “What we need is an organization of United Religions… as the best way to combat terrorists who kill in the name of faith.”
Of all popes in recent history, Pope Francis has also embraced what have thus far been considered pretty “radical” views for the church, including everything from sexual ethics and and an open arms policy on gay rights to Darwinism. He even delivered a speech in March 2014 where he referred to Muslims as worshipping the “one God.”
If any pope was going to head up a one world religion, this one sure seems to tow every line.
Wasn’t there a bit in Revelations about a one world religion as a signal of the end times?

Christ Mar., you have not pulled sexy Muriel out off the convent to give you back up with the cross, and the wooden spike. My God things must be serious, the poor old priest will have to get a hot water bottle to cuddle in the interim.

Time to resurrect the Balibo 5? YNOT!

troop, you sure these clowns weren't Muslims, I mean it does fit with the stupidity of believing in enjoying 72 virgins when your dead..

Marigold you are terrible.

O T,.......................WEST IRIAN JAYA

For those who advocate any form on military response to stop or even curb the atrocities being perpetrated on the peoples West Irian by the Indonesians please have a good long look at the terrain and vegetation that prevails in that country. Look at Larry 's photo and do a Google Earth search for more examples

For all the technological, equipment serviceability and level of training advantages we have over the Indonesian Military the only thing that can possibly prevail in that form of conflict is boots upon the ground. Our infantry Battalions ( total of 7 I think all under strength ) plus our Commandos and SAS are the only assets that we have that can provide boots on the ground.

Without massive expansion, including conscription ( imagine how well that would be received by the Communists and the Muslims of Australia ) we could hope to sustain only very limited operation for 12 months if we were lucky.

What is happening there is disgusting BUT please stop think and try and imagine the cost in young lives you would be expending if your wish is implemented. It would make Gillard and Rudd's genocide pale to insignificance. You would be consigning our Military to a hell on earth for a very long time.

Without a very, very large coalition of the willing prepared to stay the course of many, many years I fear we must learn to accept Indonesia's brutality or find ways than armed conflict to modify their behaviours.

@ FLYING logging off old mate T 5 LOL.


Paddy is just getting over the shock of losing two friends when Sean appears.

He's also been to the pet shop and is carrying a cardboard box out of which he pulls a chicken.

Sean then takes the chicken by its legs and hurls himself off the cliff and disappears down and down until he hits a rock and breaks his spine.

Once more Paddy shakes his head. 'Feck dat, lads. First dere was Gerry with his budgie jumping, den Seamus parrotshooting.... And now Sean and his feck'n hengliding!'

Moment's later; Seamus arrives up at Connor Pass.

He's been to the pet shop too and walks up to the edge of the cliff carrying another cardboard box in one hand and a shotgun in the other..

'Hi, Paddy, watch dis,' Seamus says.

He takes a parrot from the box and lets him fly free.

He then throws himself over the edge of the cliff with the gun.

Paddy watches as half way down, Seamus takes the gun and shoots the parrot.

Seamus continues to plummet down and down until he hits the bottom and breaks every bone in his body.

Paddy shakes his head and says, 'And I'm never trying dat parrotshooting either!'

The original West Papua sounds like the kind of place that would be Utopia to our Greens. They would be the ones to investigate the horrors perpetrated on the people ! In addition Nick Zenaphon would be the man to question about West Papua , he stated today , that Indo. is a good example of democracy! ?

Miss Piggy must be leaning VERY HEAVILY on the police commissioner as Billy The Basher is still running free and making his vote available to Miss Piggy and her Piglets.

I logged in to see if my 'nic' would be hijacked again, that's all to you known criminals.

Just think if "IT" reall has two heads IT wont have to chat with us on the PP IT can chat with its other half.
