JAKARTA (Reuters) – Six hundred Indonesian soldiers will finish building a highway in the province of Papua, a military spokesman said on Tuesday, after 16 construction workers were killed by separatists in the restive area last year.

The soldiers working on the Trans-Papua highway and 21 bridges will continue security operations in the area home to a simmering separatist conflict since Papua was incorporated into Indonesia in 1969.

“They will build the road because conditions in the field are difficult and there are disruptions from armed criminal groups,” military spokesman Brigadier General Sisriadi said via text message.

Construction on parts of the 4,300 km (2,672 miles) highway has been stalled for months after the military wing of the Free Papua Movement (OPM) claimed responsibility for killing at least 16 workers and a soldier in Nduga district in December …

    For those that cannot be bothered in searching into the facts related to all that is evil in the USA of today, the more intelligent Australians will likely attend to the claims held in the below URL link.


    Australia be warned, the whole paradigm of the countries with thier allied agreements with the US of A is about to become a severely threatening impost upon each relevant country’s horizons, of each and all the portents rising in US evil intended futures.
    The ‘fact’ is that our government can no longer be trusted.

    Hello Emanuel, there are additional horrors underlaying the Grasburg Copper and Gold mine, Rio Tinto, another of the Australian Stock Exchange ASX bluechip stocks (some used to refer to each of these international polluters as the ‘darlings of the bourse’, then not unlike BHP long before it was linked with British miner Billiton….same as the internationals, both Rio Tinto and BHP-Billiton, even today these 2 present as the highest environmental destructors among the World’s miners.

    BHP had its Fly River/OK Tedi mining scandal that had resulted in mass pollution down in the lowland regions where the OK Tedi and the Fly River outflow has created a massive devastated region of toxic waste that BHP and by then its new Billiton partner, did not want to acknowledge the looming disasters of BHP nor its new partner Billiton.
    (Once one learns of BHP’s many sludge ponds and tailings pond collapses.)

    BHP had contrived to slither out of their contracted land reclamation and environmental restoration responsibilities, by the payment of a paltry $40 million dollar compensatory award, then having also signed their 52% OK Tedi holding over to the Papuan and New Guinea Sustainable Development Program Limited.

    Internationally both these mining giants have been responsible for the deaths of a substantial number of people, however, worrying about the carnage and the ruined and devastated legacy of environmental destruction are of no real interest to the BIg Boys in both these major mining institutions.

    Since some 20 plus years ago the reputation of Australia was still high in the minds of most overseas countries, all has since changed.

    One can cite the change began under the ‘John “Fibber” Howard regime’ who by then had embraced one of the most lethal war-mongering American Presidents ever known (being George W Bush) as a good best mate of US, then of Howards lying to the Australian people, did not auger well for Australia. Australia has now torpedoed its reputation as a fair and honest country.

    Australia is now under threat from Donald Trump and the US, in that those countries who have a US Military facility in their country will soon have to contribute Billions of dollars for having enjoyed the American presence in their country.
    Also that each country must soon pick up the salaries and the running costs of that country’s US military facility in our Australia and for those other hoodwinked countries around the World.

    One day the people of Australia will realize that my identified prophecies that have warned the Australia government to get out from the current evil spell-casting US military with their allied agreements committed to by our government in Australia, that will severely impact upon the Australia government and our citizens based on the fact that the Liberal government had prostrated itself below the US in a starfish-like manner and has had to be prepared for their being shafted by the blunt force wickedness of the USA.
    Fo those who prefer to think otherwise, I refer you to the link below and to scroll through to the latest articles featuring the claims as above described that had recently been announced by Donald Trump.

    I have provided the URL Below that provides access to the Global Research website, this has been provided to the people that prefer fact news as opposed to the dross that is fed to the World by the USA.
    The heavily censored US international news is determinedly sent to Australia’s mainstream media proprietors to influence the news to be a reset of the facts that will then issue through our mainstream media newsproviders.


    Back all those many years ago, it was the US that argued ‘against’ Australia to the partitioning of the Papua/West Papua territory, let it go to Indonesia was the idiocy of their then preferencing Indonesia.
    Their meddling in Australia’s national affairs continues on to this very day.

    Question: which country introduced the terror of terrorism into our World?
    (a small clue, think of 9/11.)

    Seems that the entire World is beholden to the American style false/fake mainstream media news across the World no matter to often important international events are simply glossed over. The true story of Papua/West Papua is of the Indonesian brutality and slaughter leading to the slow genocide of that realms indigenous tribal owners.
    Malcolm Fraser had warned Australia that being a vassal of the USA is very dangerous for all of Australia.
    Yet the World’s media are as good as bending over and maintaining that position while America has its way with the media news platform owners, the recent events in the country of Venezeula presents as a classic demonstration of America’s propaganda machine having been cranked up to its most powerful magnitude.
    While the World’s most murderous country spin their story of America’s kindly offered truck loads of food and medicines, yet below the surface goods of food etc, there lays fencing wire and construction nails.
    Unless one searches for honest news they in their laziness or disinterest will become mere American propaganda infused dross.
    I recommend Global Research as an International news service.
    Tragic for Australia it is if one kowtows to the current Liberal party leadership government, unfortunately they are little more than whores to America’s evil programs of One World……One Government.
