Chomsky: There is one last chance to save the Timorese from utter disaster. I
stress "utter." They've already suffered enormous disaster. In a very short
time span, in the next couple of days, probably, unless the U.S. government
takes a decisive, open stand, this thing may be past rescue. It's only
going to happen in one way, if there's a lot of public pressure on the

time to do anything about it.
