From a variety of sources, this text documents an irony of post-independence history in two former colonies: one Dutch, the other Portuguese. Indonesia, a charter member of the Non-aligned Group of Third World countries, has laid claim to East Timor, invaded its territory, and violently repressed prolonged resistance by the East Timorese to this invasion by neighbours of a totally different ethno-linguistic stock. This attempted take-over has been "justified" on the ahistorical grounds of the need for "unification" of East Timorese territory with the island republic of Indonesia.
