I was just reading this and couldn’t believe what I read…

Shortly before [Suharto] died, I interviewed Alan Clark, who under Thatcher was Britain’s minister responsible for supplying Suharto with most of his weapons. I asked him, “Did it bother you personally that you were causing such mayhem and human suffering?”

“No, not in the slightest,” he replied. “It never entered my head.”

“I ask the question because I read you are a vegetarian and are seriously concerned with the way animals are killed.”

“Yeah?”

“Doesn’t that concern extend to humans?”

“Curiously not.”

If you don’t want to hear the mainstream media version of Suharto’s legacy (so that you don’t have to hear from people like the above), check out a good discussion by Democracy Now! here:
