    It’s undeniable that the old dude has incredible charisma – no matter what he did wrong, people would still flock to him. The fact that the law hasn’t touched him is a proof that he’s still in power.

    Our genius vice president said that “we Indonesian need to respect our past leaders” – well, I assume that translates to “we can’t bring Suharto to justice”.

    Oh, brother… we’re getting waaaay behind other countries, we’re probably in the wrong gear: Reverse.

    I think you can see that Taufik’s got his hand tied to Agum’s back.
