Come on Bot, I did not say that nor justify it but I do see where the locals (Prebumi's) are coming from. Some the best I can count on are Chinese Indonesians but I also know that some were not without screwing the locals for an extra dollar when they did not need it.

thanks for the welcome mat.

What you wrote could have come from a good German following Crystallnacht.

Some of my best friends are Jewish, but....

Damn Bot you are not, repeat are not, firing on all cylinders today. I have written here several times I am a Muslim, granted I am quite liberal when it comes to the Muslim ways but I like to experiment.

What have I said of Muslims?

I am addressing the treatment of ethnic Chinese by the Indonesians and your callous dismissal of it.

Not likely. Next time I travel outside of the USA will be on a 2-3 week cruise on a slow sloop in the southern Pacific. Unless I go on a brewery & distillery tour of Ireland & Scotland first.

After those two trips I ain't budging beyond these borders. I've been most everywhere I care to go and the rest I can see on TV or in a book. Maybe vancouver, BC. I loved visiting that city when I lived in Seattle.

I don't give a damned about Indonesia. They can kill each other or not. Have fun. Just don't mess with anything that is in my country's strategic interest.
