Obama in Indonesia

11 Nov 2010

How Indonesia was perceived by Obama, and may be (now) by Americans.

He said, “I came back as a friend and as president of United States”. Obama addressed many things about Indonesia in the regional and the global level. Indonesia is an example of “unity in diversity”. His 4 years childhood in Indonesia helped him appreciate the common humanity of all people.

He expected Indonesia’s involvement in the global level, specifically in democracy and anti-corruption. He embraced the improvement in cooperation between Indonesia and US. He ended his speech with his major address to the Muslim world. The best phrase that I always like from him is, a more perfect union ^^.
