    Hi, I've recently made a posting on my thoughts about Soeharto, the former 2nd president of Indonesia in here: http://hubpages.com/hub/thesmilinggeneral

    Some of you may have heard his death last week, and his funeral was a big ceremony ever in Indonesia even though he's no longer man of power.

    Looking forward to your responses soon! Thanks. smile

    I think he was a dictator, and that Indonesia was blessed to have gotten rid of him.

    yes, so do I. but it is weird that however he's still respected by lots of people here, specially during the funeral day where all people gathered in the street to watch the convoy of his family bringing his body to the last path.

    I remember Suharto as the second President of Indonesia after Dr.Sukarno. Suharto restored the respect commanded by his country during Dr.Sukarno's rule. He can be rightfully said that the stability of the region was ensured during his rule.
