Welcome to East Timor!

Today, may 20th, East Timor became the worlds newest country. After having fought for nearly 400 years for it’s independence from Indonesia, it has finally succeeded. Hurray!

Congratulations to all 30 inhabitants of East Timor :smiley:

I wounder when we will see the East Timor soccer team in the World Cup… :slight_smile:

Hurray another third world country which needs money.

Dont understand me wrong, but I think it aint good for anybody…

East Timor: Congratz
Indonesia: Too bad.

400 years ?

Wasn’t Indonesia property of The Netherlands for quite some time ?

Do they now have cheap domains like Tokelau ?

Wonder when the first East-Timorian(?) member of this forum will arive. :slight_smile:

Yes, they were a colony of the netherlands until World War 2. Japan then took them over.

Nice to see you free at last the people of East Timor.
You’ve had enough shi* and carnage to last a lifetime.
Hope your freedom brings a little more happiness.:slight_smile:

Good location to check Indonesia and the rest of Asia while East Timor itself has under one million people compared to 250 million people in Indonesia.
