Mr Bary, again and again, you attack people with your out of topic subject. I must apologize to other readers to read my tough discussions with my Indonesian brother Mr Bary Soetoro in this Prof Pipe's site.

Mr Bary, I love my country Indonesia, for me it is green and lovely. But I am so sorry to say, we like or dislike, YES the fact that economically Australia is greener then us. For years Indonesia accepted Australia generous grants, including thousands of scholarship for Indonesians to study high tech fields in Australia, so we can improve our country to catch their technology. They did not invade Indonesia, also accepted Indonesians to live in their free environment under their law of equality. Indonesia muslims allow to worship there, even allow to build minaretes. So what is our problem with them for you to hate them? Because economically they are greener then us? What about our other neighbourhood Bruney, Malaysia and Singapore? They also greener then us, do you hate them too?

Instead of always digging other people mistakes and attack me for saying the truth, why don't we use our energy to make our country to be more and more greener? Like Australia, Singapore, New Zealand or even Malaysia? But first to be able to improve, we must see our problems and fix it first. Do you agree?

Definitely our neighbourhood Australia which you attacked, in term of economy is greener then us right? Otherwise we do not flock to Australia, Malaysia or Singapore just to be a maid? If you hate Australia, then why we see our markets full of their fruits and meat? Where is our nice fruits and cattle goes? But it does not matter right? I guess the easy way to make us to feel good is to hate them, to destroy them and to kill them right? Exactly what Amrozy did to bomb them up in Bali. What I am trying to say is, we better stop blaming others for our own problem. If someone pointing our problem, if it is true, then accept it as an open critic, to build our motivation to fix our problem and to be better and better, economically and culturelly. People will hate us for our narrow minded way of life to hate others easely, just because they are greener and more success then us. We can't gain respect from others if Indonesia population adopting hatre and stuborness for not accepting our lackness. They even will degrade us if we have a hostile attitute to defend our bad muslim brother like Amrozy... or to prize the international high profile muslims like Osama cs, just because they are muslims too.

I am so sorry to criticize you this way. But I am sure we in Indonesia, most moderate population allows us to have the right to critize each others openly right? But all critic must be base on the fact and truth right? Thank you.

Regards
Lady
