Obama – Not Coming? Who Cares?

What’s this?  The third time they’ve cancelled the visit to Indonesia because of ‘pressing matters at home’?  Is the great USA really in that much distress?  It really doesn’t inspire confidence that the USA is interested in the region.  China is certainly looking better.

But we understand.  Obama is deeply unpopular and he wants to do some campaigning ahead of elections happening in November when his party will likely lose its majorities.  And as Suharto knows, the best time to get rid of a dictator is when he’s out of the country.

    ah well… Mr. Obama doesn’t have to travel so far to get to know the updates from Indonesia, he can always phone SBY or chat thru internet 😀
    Come on, aren’t we in the social media era?! 😛
