Are the East Timorese getting a fair deal in negotiations over the undersea oilfields between our countries, or did Australia really have its eye on the oil when it went in to save them?  [ send green star]

The oil may have been a contributing factor, but the big reason it took the government so long to try and do anything was that they had to try and appease the Indonesian government...  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

of course the East Timorese are not getting a fair deal, Young Winston thinks he has it all in the bag...Screw the new nation for all he can and if they complain put them in a detention centre(or should i use the US spelling!!).

Freediver, why do people on care 2 think I am you???

No idea, but I'd take it as a compliment  [ send green star]

I think it is a pretty good deal. Not many countries get their freedom delivered by a powerful yet benign neighbour who then proceeds to carve up the spoils fairly. We'll wait and see what they actually get.  [ send green star]

reminded me of an old song:

"great nations built from the bones of the dead

with mud and straw, blood and sweat

you know your worth when you enemies

praise your architecture of agression"

Not really. I also couldn't figure out what you meant in the other thread. You shouldn't drink and post, but I'll let you of as you had a good excuse last night.  [ send green star]
