Next on the Drone List

When I saw reports yesterday that Indonesian police had 'put down' a 'riot' in Papua I wondered how long it would be before a less sanitized version surfaced.Link
Apparently what was put down was less a riot than a political gathering and lo and behold there were deaths.




Six people shot dead by police who simply fired live ammunition into a crowd of 2,000 people. This brings back stark memories of the gentle Indonesian government and its handling of East Timor.

Oh well, I guess Indonesia now will be included in Hilary Clinto's hit lists of countries to which she needs to have been and to have seen.

Herein lies a good lesson for David Farrar and all those others who ceaslessly attack the Fijian regime of Commodore Bainimarama. The Indonesian government is DEMOCRATICALLY elected.

Adolf are you feeling okay? You seem as offensive as always but I have actually found myself agreeing with you two posts in a row now. A rare occurrence.

Indonesia is untouchable and all rather too mysterious for little 'ol NZ.

On the bright side, NZ can send a cricket team to play in Mugabe's Zimbabwe and lo! there's never a Minto to be seen.

Its Islam - there is no tolerance of anything that may rock the boat. Democracy is just a label like Nike on cheap Chinese shirts. It may not be the real thing.

Where are the usual critics of "imperialist colonialism".This is a clear example.
