  • I’d like to know what do you think about it? :)

  • Hi Devi.. I think your point is interesting. That’s why I cited your post in here. Given the history of Plumpang Fuel Tank, it might be possible that the blaze was not purely an ‘accident’. Just a few months ago, the police captures suspected terrorists with explosives targeted at the tank.
