OK, let's get a few things straight.
1. There are NO tanks in East Timor. The vehicles the Australians are using are APC's
(Armoured Personnel Carriers).
They are what the name implies. A big armoured vehicle designed to take troops into battle zones.
A tank is basically a mobile canon. An APC is a troop carrier. I have even read in the 'respected' Australian media that tanks are here. They are not. A tank is a tank is a tank. An APC is NOT a tank.
2. Yes, there was some crap going down in Dili last night. Some shooting, some running
around, same old same old. Dili is very quiet right now for a Sunday. Most people are keeping their heads down.
3. The President's address on the radio is delayed.
4. Still awaiting word on the Reinado situation........
ps - whilst I very much appreciate and welcome comments, please do not put anything in Pork and Cheese. It brings me out in a rash.
