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.

Flysa………reading the article in The Australian they were concerned of the possibility that there could have been a handover of the drugs during the flight to persons not known to the police and that these persons might have escaped detection on arrival in Australia.

Did Scott Rush’s old man warn him that he had been to the coppers?”

Oh yeah! Like they could have opened the cargo doors to the plane mid flight and jettisoned the drugs where another mule, mid-flight, would have ………………….

Jeff of FNQ, the single reason for informing the Indonesians (monkeys according to some) was that they had “sufficient evidence” and detailed plans that the transaction was ongoing. Also, they had been monitored for some years and were know to have conducted other such ‘trips’.

The bastard in charge was just that, a bastard in charge at the time.

I understood that they said they didn’t have sufficient evidence to arrest them, presumably for conspiracy to import, prior to their departure for Indonesia.

Flysa, excellent point worthy of the gold star.

Our very own AFP totally discredited themselves with such a statement and a few other statements they made trying to cover their arses.

All this, in the 21st century, go figure.

IT IS NOT OVER YET….

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… Read more »

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.
