U.N. Peacekeepers to go into East Timor.

Amid concerns about the actions of some elements of the Indonesian military, the U.N. grants the Peacekeeping force permission to use whatever force is deemed necessary.

Note: the headline in the cartoon is based on the following quote, "Defence Minister John Moore indicated Australian peacekeepers would be given licence to shoot to kill..." in an article by John Hamilton and Clinton Porteous, The Herald-Sun, 15 Sept. 1999.
