Back to the Future for Obama
[TABLE="width: 798"]
[TD]September 16-18, 2011 -- Back to the future for Obama: Ratcheting up tension with Indonesia over Beijing-Jakarta ties [TABLE="width: 798"]
publication date: Sep 15, 2011


Borrowing a page from the CIA's book in the months before it overthrew President Sukarno, the Obama administration has opted to use growing Chinese-Indonesian ties as a reason to step up internal political pressure on the Indonesian government of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. The Obama administration is copying the Lyndon Johnson administration by ratcheting up tensions with Beijing in East Asia, using Indonesia as a proxy battleground.

In 1965, the CIA seeded a bogus news story in the Asian press about the secret supply of Chinese weapons to the PKI [Indonesian Communist Party] for a communist revolt. The phony article first appeared in a Malaysian newspaper, citing unnamed sources in Bangkok, who heard the story from Hong Kong sources who, in turn, picked up the information from contacts in mainland China.

In a 2009 replay, Obama's then-ambassador to Beijing, Jon Huntsman, now a GOP presidential candidate, wrote in a cable to the State Department, that
"the PRC [People's Republic of China] was increasingly assertive in its interactions with Indonesia." It was such "intelligence" about Chinese influence in Indonesia that was used to justify the 1965 coup against Sukarno, one which Obama's Indonesian step-father participated, and the succeeding genocide waged against Indonesia's ethnic Chinese and PKI members, a bloodbath in which Obama's mother participated as a CIA agent providing ethno-political intelligence under US Agency for International Development (USAID) cover.

The PKI is long since gone but Obama is now using the specter of Indonesian jihadists as a reason to apply pressure on Indonesia. WMR's sources in Indonesia rpeort that a number of Islamic radicals trained by the CIA in Afghanistan and Pakistan are active with elements of the Indonesian military to stoke up tensions between Muslims and other religions in Indonesia and carry out limited terrorist attacks against Christian churches and Buddhist temples. The CIA operation is intended to destabilize Indonesia and force a pro-U.S. strongman like Suharto, the CIA-funded army chief who took over from Sukarno after the 1965 coup, to come to power in Jakarta. A pro-U.S. dictator in Indonesia would be expected to veer Indonesia away from lucrative oil, natural gas, and mineral deals with China and put the nation's natural resources into the hands of the United States and Australia.

On March 24, 2011, WMR reported: "
Fears that a possible coup against Yudhoyono is being planned by right-wing active duty and retired Indonesian army elements are being fueled by an Al Jazeera report that a cabal of Indonesian generals have held secret meetings with leaders of Indonesia's radical Islamist groups to help plan terrorist attacks in the country that would then be used as a pretext for an army coup against Yudhoyono. The generals would claim that the ouster of the president was necessitated by his weak leadership in the face of terrorism. In fact, the renegade generals consider Yudhoyono to be too much of a reformist."

The Obama administration is also upset about Yudhoyono's close ties to Russia and Iran. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation and, as such, is a prime intelligence target of the neocons and Zionists who continue to dominate the U.S. foreign policy apparatus. Israel continues to be upset that Indonesia decided not to establish diplomatic relations with the Jewish state after the ouster of Suharto in 1998.
Our March 24 report continued: "The rumors of a planned coup against Yudhoyono come amid the publication by WikiLeaks of U.S. embassy Jakarta cables that report alleged widespread corruption, personal enrichment, nepotism, and spying on political opponents by Yudhoyono's administration.
WMR's Jakarta source confirms the Al Jazeera report that the Islamist provocateur groups, led by retired Army chief of staff General Tyasno Sudarto, is involved in planning for a series of 'false flag' terrorist attacks. The Islamist groups have been recruiting new members since January and are now boldly calling for a revolution in Indonesia, the removal of Yudhoyono, and the formation of an Islamic state. Sudarto has called for Indonesian youth movements to align with the Indonesian armed forces (TNI) and he has accused Yudhoyono of weakening the army."
The Huntsman cable suggested that Indonesia was loathe to interfere with China's "core interests" in Asia, interests that are at loggerheads with U.S. interests in the region, particularly disputed South China Sea islands, Tibet, and Taiwan. It was Sukarno's support for China on the international stage, such as Indonesia's withdrawal from the United Nations, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund over their anti-China stance, that precipitated the CIA's coup and removal of Sukarno from power. U.S. embassy cables from Jakarta have suggested that Yudhoyono is protecting wealthy Chinese-Indonesia business interests and "criminals." The U.S. embassy has also charged that Yudhoyono is protecting from corruption charges Taufik Kiemas, the husband of former President Megawati Sukarnaputri, the daughter of Sukarno. WMR learned in Jakarta that the CIA arranged for the poisoning death of Sukarno in 1970 while he was under house arrest. In 1970, Obama was attending the Menteng state elementary school in Jakarta while his step-father was working for the CIA under the non-official cover of government relations officer for UNOCAL and while his mother was under non-official CIA cover working for the Institute of Management Education and Development in Jakarta.
The word from Jakarta is that Obama has given a green light for the CIA to do anything necessary to bring Indonesia firmly into the U.S. orbit and, with it, Indonesia's vast energy and mineral resources.

1. © SUMMARY: PRC State Councilor Dai Bingguo's "warm,
friendly" January 21-26 visit to Indonesia reinforced the
perception that China-Indonesia relations have been
relatively free of tension of late; however, in reality PRC
diplomatic assertiveness with Indonesia has risen steadily in
recent years, according to an Indonesian Embassy official.
The Indonesian official suggested that the strong (per usual)
PRC reaction to the United States announcement of arms sales
to Taiwan and to the President's plan to meet the Dalai Lama
is intended to preserve domestic political legitimacy and to
warn other countries that there are consequences for
violating PRC "core interests." These warnings have
influenced Indonesia's posture on PRC "core interests."
Competition between Indonesia and China for influence in
Southeast Asia, combined with past frictions, creates an
undercurrent of tension in the bilateral relationship,
according to the Indonesian diplomat. END SUMMARY.

Indonesian Views on PRC Diplomatic Assertiveness
--------------------------------------------- ---
2. © The PRC was increasingly assertive in its interactions
with Indonesia, but there had not been any recent spike in
diplomatic pressure, Indonesian Embassy PolCouns Gudadi
Bambang Sasongko told PolOffs February 8. As evidence of
growing PRC assertiveness, Sasongko noted past PRC objections
to proposed visits of the Dalai Lama and the May 2006 transit
of Taiwan then-President Chen Shui-bian as well as the PRC's
strong reaction to June 2009 arrest of Chinese fisherman in
Indonesia's EEZ. During the July 2009 visit of Indonesian
then-Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda, PRC officials had
insisted that the sailors had been fishing in "historical
fishing grounds" and had reiterated extensive PRC claims in
the South China Sea by flatly declaring to the Indonesians:
"We have a border." Most recently, however, Sasongko said,
relations had been relatively tension-free as evidenced by
State Councilor Dai Bingguo's late-January visit to Indonesia.

3. © Sasongko suggested that Indonesia's growing caution on
PRC "core interests," (i.e., not hosting the Dalai Lama and
maintaining non-official, commercially-driven ties with
Taiwan) had spared Indonesia from the type of diplomatic
protests that the PRC had recently directed at the United
States. While the PRC had never threatened Indonesia with
specific measures for violations of its "core interests,"
Indonesia was not ready to risk PRC retaliation that might
undermine Indonesia's economic development. Negative PRC
reactions to Dalai Lama meetings with French President
Sarkozy and German Chancellor Merkel had also influenced
Indonesia's posture on these issues. Despite PRC
sensitivities on Taiwan, Indonesia continued to welcome
discreet Taiwan investments because they created local
employment. In contrast, he said, PRC investment projects
consisted mainly of "building a bridge" but resulted in few
jobs for Indonesians.

4. © Sasongko stated that Indonesia paid close attention to
PRC reactions to U.S. actions and argued that the PRC
reaction to the U.S. announcement of arms sales to Taiwan and
President Obama's plan to meet with the Dalai Lama was not
only a sign of displeasure with the United States but also
reflected PRC leadership desire to preserve its domestic
legitimacy as well as the PRC's international image as a
rising power that must be respected.

State Councilor Dai Visit to Indonesia
5. © State Councilor Dai Bingguo had enjoyed a "warm,
friendly" visit to Indonesia January 21-26 at the invitation
of Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law and
Security Affairs Djoko Suyanto, Sasongko said. Dai had met
with President YUDHOYONO and Vice President Boediono, and
signed a plan of action for the implementation of the
PRC-Indonesia strategic partnership. Neither side had raised
contentious issues, and there was no discussion of
differences over implementation of the China-ASEAN FTA, which
took effect January 1. The two sides had discussed plans for
President YUDHOYONO to attend the Shanghai World Expo, but
specific dates had not been set, according to Sasongko.

Competing Vision for Region
BEIJING 00000393 002 OF 002

6. © Sasongko asserted that Indonesia was the only country
in Southeast Asia that consistently and unequivocally upheld
democracy and human rights as key principles and took action
through the Bali Democracy Forum to push for political
progress throughout the region. The PRC preferred to focus
regional attention on economic integration and sought to put
off political differences until economic interdependence had
taken further root. This divergence between Indonesia's
focus on regional political development and China's emphasis
on regional economic integration, as well as past historical
tensions with the PRC, contributed to friction in the
bilateral relationship. Still, according to Sasongko, both
sides sought to keep relations in a positive direction
through the PRC-Indonesia strategic partnership.
