Abuses will not stop co-operation with Indonesia

"The head of the Indonesian human rights group Kontras, Haris Azhar, said: ''The video clearly shows very barbaric tortures against the Papuans.''
He urged the Indonesian government ''to find out who the victims are and who the perpetrators are''.

Response is not surprised, the historical record and this present example are consistent. Of course, human rights abuses and torture carried out by allies will be overlooked and quickly forgotten. Whereas, milder abuses carried out by those who are otherwise uncooperative or disobedient will likely be punished most severely.
