Free West Papua

Australia’s closest geographical neighbour is the world’s second-largest island, New Guinea.  The eastern half of this island is the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, and the western half is West Papua, now consisting of two Indonesian provinces. In 1975, Papua New Guinea was declared independent after decades of overlapping German, British, and Australian administration, and the post-war union of the Papua and New Guinea territories in 1949. In the same year, The Dutch attempted to leave behind an independent West Papuan nation when departing the region after 149 years of colonial rule.  Indonesia, however, claimed rights of sovereignty over West … Continue reading Free West Papua

My Doubt Radar is in overdrive.

MH17 Story Still Murky & Confused

It’s become a common theme in most news events of recent times – the truth will never now be known. I’ve previously published or reblogged a couple of posts on the MH17, as well as MH370, ‘events’ (see MH17 Crash Analysis, by The Russian Union Of Engineers and MH17 Shot DOWN over UKRAINE is MISSING MALAYSIAN Flight 370).  I’ve also happily retweeted a lot of suggestions that the ‘official narrative’, if there is one, has been misleading, to say the least, even going so far as to suggest that the exact opposite of what Western mainstream media reports is closer to … Continue reading MH17 Story Still Murky & Confused
