One Response to Dutch Royals attended Remembrance and Liberation Day

  1. Michael Correll says:

    I believe Holland is giving compensation to Indonesians injured in her war of independence from Holland.
    I am waiting to hear of Indonesia giving compensation to the East Timorese injured when Indonesia invaded and occupied what was Portuguese Timor.
    I traveled through Portuguese Timor and found the people wonderfully friendly and not at all egotistical.
    They certainly did not deserve to be subject to the horrors of Indonesian invasion and occupation.
    East Timor is a country with few friends.
    Portugal, the old colonial power, can’t do much to help them.
    Perhaps the Chinese and Cubans will fill the gap?
