Sir: How is the sale of military aircraft to Indonesia any different from the sale of potential military aircraft to Saddam Hussein?

Not only is it in East Timor, but also in Irian Jaya that the Indonesian regime has a record on human rights that we should condemn loudly and often and certainly not empower, to solve (partially) our present government's economic embarrassment.

Yours sincerely,
