AUSTRALIAN soldiers drew arms to protect themselves from Jordanian
peacekeepers after a Digger blew the whistle on other Jordanian soldiers' sexual
abuse of East Timorese boys. Corporal Andrew Wratten had to be evacuated and
Australian commandos sent to protect Diggers in Oecussi, an East Timorese
province in Indonesian West Timor, after he told the UN of the pedophilia that
occurred in May 2001.
The Australians drew their Steyr assault rifles after being confronted
by Jordanians armed with M-16s, in an escalation of verbal threats triggered by
the later betrayal of Corporal Wratten by a Jordanian officer in the Dili
headquarters of the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor.
Yup, that's the UN, the moral authority of the entire world. Not. But good on yer Aussies for confronting the child molesting scum -- er, "colleagues".
