Yyz717, adding to the points that Ben made, particularly on East Timor, if it weren't for the "west", in particular Kissinger, then the Indonesians would never have had the opportunity to set up shop in East Timor. Plus the treatment of East Timor by the "west" is even more disgraceful, because we all sat back and watched whilst the Indonesians slaughtered the East Timorese. Not only did we watch, but we also supplied the bullets
KAUSPilot, I am actually glad that the Indonesians are treating this suspect (remember, he is not yet guilty of any crime) in a civilised manner, for this means that the torture which used to be dealt out by the Indonesian military in the past may be on the downward path.
Is the photo in this thread similar to the photo below?
Here you have 2 men sitting together and smiling for the cameras. All the while, the guy on the right is responsible for the cold-blooded murder of thousands of Iranians, and the systematic torture of Iranian students and other citizens. What is the excuse for this "happy snap"?
Or how about this photo?
And this is after the slaughter of some 500,000 people by Suharto post-1965. This photo is presumed to be the meeting between Suharto, Kissinger and Ford, where the American party gave tacit approval for the invasion (and subsequent mass murder of the inhabitants) of East Timor./
But they were happy times weren't they?
