I am indebted to Rocket

I am indebted to Rocket Man for many things, including his introducing me to the work of Bret Stephens in the Jerusalem Post. Here is a scholarly and insightful column by Stephens about Indonesia. Stephens notes that President Megawati Sukarnoputri, the daughter the odious Sukarno (Mr. Non-Aligned) has finally joined the war on terrorism, having recognized that her country’s “curious national identify can only be preserved by resisting radical Islam.” Rocket Man has been on top of this development (see posts of Oct. 21), but Stephens’ column covers much more, including a chilling discussion of the tragic decisions made by Third World leaders like Sukarno 40 years ago, and the enduring tragic consequences.
