Several high ranking Indonesian officers are named, as culpable in instigating bloodshed. The book is an attempt to bear witness against them. Alas, the prospects of these officers being indicted are unlikely. Even under the new Indonesian democracy, the military posseses considerable autonomy from civilian oversight.
The book also shows why in Australia there has been a persistent suspicion of Indonesia's actions. A feeling that perhaps one day Australia's northern regions might fall under Indonesian incursions. The actions of Indonesia's military towards East Timor do not induce good feelings in the region.
