Comparing Indonesia with United States is like comparing ants with elephants. Sudono Salim with Bill Gates. Totally unfair.
Let's start with Phillipines first. They are very similar to us in so many ways.
Then maybe we can move to Malaysia. That country never had a gold medal before! (Yea, I know I digress)
Another off-topic here: I have some weird feeling that Indonesians should thank TNI/ABRI/whatchanameit more. It's not easy, you know. Even US had a big civil war scar in her history that never will disappeared. We had little ones here and there.. but no major scar. Lives lost, that's true, justice needs to be done. But if the TNI/ABRI/whatchanameit's purpose is to prevent civil war that could disintegrate Indonesia, I would offer my applause to them.
No, I dont have any family in TNI/ABRI/whatchanameit. Yes, I don't know the bigger story. It's just my 2 cents.
