Just Bush It!

Indonesians love to use the word bete or BT if they hate something or feel bored. Actualy BT is an abbreviation (we love them) of bullshit. But using the same word you could end up with another abbreviation, Bush and Sulit (Difficult, tough). Expecting Bush to renegotiate contracts between US companies and Indonesia government must be sulit if not BT.
Chairman of Muhammadiyah (the second largest Moslem organization in Indonesia) said the meeting between president SBY & Bush will be of No Use, Detik.com reported.
While the ABGs (Anak Baru Gede) in Bogor rallied with flowers in their hands today to welcome Mr Bush, Detik.com also reported. Hundreds meters away, another group have a completely different wishes. The group, mainly students, hopes God will 'punish' Bush with heavy rains and thunder welcoming him. From the media coverage perspective, I think the opposition movements win. But I'm not sure if that represents the whole population. We call the situation Just Bush It!

Hey. Me too - confused that is. I'm a long-time Australian student of Bahasa Indonesia. Back in my dugem days, I was told BT meant "bad trip" (ok, ok, so i did hear this at Stadium :-))
