- The nation will be subjected to six days of watching
a corpse being dragged around the country! I would like to know who
gave one sob for the hundreds of thousands slaughtered in East Timor. Bet
Ford won't be remembered for this 'accomplishment'!!
- Here we go again, making a famous personage (President
Ford) into some larger than life American hero His minister sobbed,
"He and Betty are the folks Heaven was made for"others lauded
his 'healing of the nation', 'a gentle, kind man of great integrity'.
Blah blah blah. Now that he's dead he has the 'courage' to leave
a written note about the being against the Iraq (invasion) war.
- For the next week, (much like the Reagan debacle) we'll
see his body dragged all over the nation and moved from pillar to
post in Washington such is the pageantry that surrounds our favorite
occupation in this country death.
- What's missing in all these poignant tales is that Ford
gave us Cheney and Rumsfeld (on his White House staff) and appointed
Bush the first, as head of the CIA. Also missing in the sappy news stories;
was this kind, gentle, healer's visit to Indonesia, with Kissinger in 1975.
This visit (unreported in U.S. press) by Ford and Kissinger gave the green
light to demonic President Suharto of Indonesia to invade East Timor; which
resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of East Timor landless
peasants (pictures much too sickening to show). This was the worst
massacre of the 20th century. The sin of these lowly peasants, as in any
land invaded, is the wealth they possessed in their resources of oil, nickel,
gold, and cooper.
- American and European consortiums divided up the nickel
reserves. America, France and Japan got the forests. The big prize, East
Timor's gold (largest in world) and its cooper went to American giant (Kissinger
on its board of directors) Freeport McMoran. These mines are now guarded
by Indonesian troops America supplied the weapons that slaughtered
the multitudes of peasants; through both Republican and Democratic regimes
in the U.S.Reagan, Carter, Clinton, Bush, and yes the 'healer' Ford, all
contributed multi millions in arms/planes/helicopters ----
- I don't suppose they'll be any reading of the 'new evidence' of
President Suharto's meeting with Ford and Kissinger in 1975 (day before
slaughter began). Since there has been zero (maybe a few lines) of this
horrific massacre over the years it's not surprising that few will
care today too bad, because this greed is repeating itself in Iraq
(greater region) for the love of oil this time..National Security Archive scan
