The problem lies with the assessment of the whole East Timor movement
as such. No matter how monstrous the Indonesian pro-imperialist rule
could be, a radicalized movement aimed at independence of a province
of Indonesia could not end but the way it has ended.

Same would have happenned if the Indian ruling classes had stormed
Goa and Goans had found Western support for their "independence",
etc.

Hope that now, when the bitter fruits are beginning to ripen, many
who were against me and others by the time of Australian occupation
of Far Eastern Indonesia ("humanitarian intervention in East Timor")
begin to think again.
