Suharto has gone!

The death of Suharto will be welcomed by many people in both Indonesia and elsewhere.

He was undoubtedly a tyrant, and was ultimately responsible for the deaths of many political opponents, but to some he was considereed to be a great leader.

Readers may wish to read this article from the BBC, see url link below.

I consider that Jonathan Kent has given a fair and balanced summary of the life and times of Suharto, but you make up your own minds.
