One of the guys i know in Jakarta (oil industry) said today he has 2 of his staff (expats) working about 20 klics away from the epicenter. He said that from what his staff tell him the reported numbers ofdead do not seem to be exaggerated and will be climbing higher.

I've seen this before. This is just some kind of commie plot to get our sympathy.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
