Grand Infidel, let me support Mr.Soetero. I think the USA has never colonized anybody really. Growing up in n us-occupied country I can confirm this. Mr.Soetero has every right to protest colonialism, I also do not want to be colonized. Not by better technology, not by english language in business, not by international corporations, not by muslim mass immigration. Mr.Soetero has every right to stay whatever he is being an indonesian. As for the dutch, the Netherlands together with northern Italy was way ahead of anybody else in Europe around 1600. I seriously doubt that Indonesia came in any way close because of the dutch.
