President messages to Australia

The issue of tapping "conducted" by Australia now widespread discussed in Indonesia. Even the Indonesian hacker has reportedly attacked several sites belonging to Australian as countermeasure. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will send a formal letter to Prime Minister Tony Abbott to ask for an official explanation from the Australian government.

While we don't know what exactly the content of the letter, let we see what Indonesian President had wrote on his official twitter account, as follow :

Message from Indonesian Hacker

I think, tapping in the cyber world is common, but tapping that conducted by a government to government is a serious matter. Do you agree?

  1. Well Tikno, you know what I'm going to write :): it's serious among friends, protests are in place, asking for explanations is almost mandatory, but let's not pretend spying is one-sided. So, instead of escalating , playing cool is the wiser strategy in my opinion. And, actually I think that official institutions ( secret services) spying on their own countrymen is the by far more serious offence Edward Snowden revealed.

    1. Perhaps, it could be on either side. But unfortunately Australia has been caught.
      But anyway, I'm the type that is very respectful of the so-called privacy. I also oppose Internet censorship.
      President has playing cool. I think... media is the source of anger with its teasing title and contents.

  2. I agree, particularly when both the countries involved are considered to be friendly neighbours. It is another story if it were between us and our neighbour :-)
