After East Timor became independent from Portugal in 1975, Indonesian dictator Suharto planned to forcibly annex the new country. In December 1975, Suharto discussed the invasion plans during a meeting with Henry Kissinger and President Gerald Ford, both of whom encouraged the takeover. More than 200,000 were killed in the invasion. The occupation lasted 25 years.
