Tourism - pre-2000 NPOV[edit]

Not that I am a personal fan of Suharto or anything, but 'cronies' and 'henchmen' seem like fairly biased words to be using in this context. 188.220.41.41 (talk) 11:24, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

188.220.41.41 (talk) You are probably right, it is most likely biased, it is probably also correct and the mess from land seizures, appropriations and swindling in Lombok is still being sorted out. I noticed the section when I was editing the article recently, had the same thought that it was possibly biased, considered it for a while and then left it there. Frankly I think I would have a lot of difficulty challenging the veracity of the statement. Possibly changing it to 'operatives' or something similar may be more approproate however the truth of it is they most likely were "henchmen" (henchman |ˈhen ch mən|noun ( pl. -men) chiefly derogatory a faithful follower or political supporter, esp. one prepared to engage in crime or dishonest practices by way of service • historical a squire or page of honor to a person of rank).Felix505 (talk) 19:44, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

August 2010 changes[edit]

I think it is important to emphasize the changing character of Bali from natural, unspoiled to urbanized and Westernized, is influencing the type and number of tourists to Lombok. C6h12o2 (talk) 16:53, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
