Think Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines, Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier of Haiti, and Suharto of Indonesia, among others.
On the contrary, all regional and world powers consorted with the Suharto regime.
A soldier and statesman in Indonesia in the twentieth century. An abortive coup by communists in 1965 led to the gradual devolution of power from Sukarno to the army, with Suharto assuming power in 1967. He became president in 1968 upon Sukarno's resignation and held that post until forced from office in 1998 by mass protests against corruption and nepotism in his government.
