Indonesian army attacks and destroys state facilities in Timor-Leste

According to this piece from Tempo Semanal, there were 17 well-armed Indonesian National Army(TNI) on the 24/2/2011 once again illegally ventured into the territory of Timor-Leste storming and destroying warehouse built in Naktuka, Oecussed District by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Timor-Leste.

This is not the first time the disgruntled if not organised TNI carried out such immature acts along the border of TL and Indonesia. Despite the frequent disturbances, Jakarta has not yet up to this stage taken any serious measures against its forces. The two governments of Timor-Leste and Indonesia have been working on demarcation, the TNI pays no heed to the effort by the civilian authorities. Two things can be drawn from these cases.

Firstly, Indonesia, despite its proclaimed-success of democractic transition to democracy, the military still yields the power.

Secondly, this displays dissatisfaction of the armed forces towards the indepedent Timor-Leste. The Border Patrol Unit (or UPF) of Timor-Leste, a well-armed police forces unit of Timor-Leste indeed has shown a great maturity for not retaliating against those actors.

The government of Timor-Leste and the international community must condemn these acts that have the potential of fomenting disturbance along the border of the two countries.

Jakarta should stop concocting its cheap excuse that it is only 'elements' of the TNI, this not the first case, it has been a frequent disturbances, something is wrong with the TNI institution. If the Indonesian authorities fail to act, this would only blemish Indonesia's reputation as a great country in the region.
