Generalissimo Suharto is still dying

As discussed earlier, former Indonesian President Suharto's health seems to come and go. Just a few days ago, we were told of a miraculous recovery from multiple organ failure that had people talking (by turns) either his Chuck Norris-like manliness or his prowess as a witch doctor. Today? He's just another strongman becoming weak with infection.

Kudos are in store for the Indonesian student movement (pictured above, in Yogyakarta) for keeping up calls for justice as the national bourgeoisie crumbles craven to power once again. As time goes on, Suharto -- once a terror of a Southeast Asian tiger -- becomes a mere bean-curd tiger.
