    What in article says those that were arrested were the bad guys?
    The indonesisan government is not known for democratic principles or humane treatment towards any of its minority or dissdent groupsOf course any group U S supports cannot and do not oppress their people and are lovers of democracy, are they notWas a time when nationalism and search for liberty no matter the nation was fought. for found favor within US but now we know not what in truth any nations people fightfor and only care about our military backed economic interest.
    At least their gov using US intelligence and trained and supplied security forces arrested the individuals and did not use a drone to take them out.
    Their methods of interrogation needed no such support, they learned it long ago at School of Americas.

    There was this little guy sitting in a bar, drinking his beer, minding his own business when all of a sudden this great big dude comes in and - WHACK!! - knocks him off the bar stool and onto the floor. The big dude says, "That was a karate chop from Korea." The little guy thinks "GEEZ," but he gets back up on the stool and starts drinking again when all of a sudden - WHACK!! - the big dude knocks him down AGAIN and says, "That was a judo chop from Ja pan." So the little guy has had enough of this... He gets up, brushes himself off and quietly leaves. The little guy is gone for an hour or so when he returned. Without saying a word, he walks up behind the big dude and - WHAM!!!" - knocks the big dude off his stool, knocking him out cold!!! The little guy looks at the bartender and says, "When he gets up, tell him that's a crowbar from Sears.

    Buddy left and we with him but soon returned to fullhouse tavern.
    Not with acraftsmen crow bar but a 58 Rambler tire iron. Whack accross back and then pals pointy cowboy boots ended tge fight.
    Not thriwn out but weall got plastered by free beer ofcuustomers untillaw came.
    3 days for pal in town jail aslap onback by platoon sargent and no more seen was cufflinks stud.
    Not funny to many as your joke but humor begins in the real world and often behind the laughslie many truths of human nature.

    There has never been as strong an Executive cabinet as what now exist within the Obama Administration.
    Never has there been such a coalition of both partys upper echelons been reduced to come-a-long or perish status by a coup made up of old neocon and neo liberal. power brokers.
    That the realcontest has damn..... little to do with domestic policy first other than what needs to be done insupport of Truly Imperial non elected grouping but by competing financial interest each trying to vurry a carving out of this nation.
    Romney cannot winbut it matters not just as long as the appeara es of ademocraticly elected government is viewed by populace.
    Doesn't make a diff what gov does for only they know andthe media are no more than its propagandist.

      I am doing pretty well, thank you. And how about yourself ? It was a surprise to hear you had moved ba k east. Did the Arizona way of life burn you out ?
      In answer to the questios you asked the other day, Yes my vacation was quite invigorating. I actually lived in a cave for two days. That was really an experience.
      And yes we took our kitty with us. Pookie sat in my lap for the whole trip. She even tried to drive the car a couple of times.
      So, have you moved moved to your new location or is this a temporary relocation ?
