Ditto Animae.That country killed thousands of east Timorese and murdered our journalists there, hanged two of our citizens , persecutes and kills Christians in outlying provinces and is guilty of genocide in west Papua. I don't have a good word for it.That boy is in big big trouble.

People must learn to be respectful to others. Especially when you go to another country.
