What Indonesia can learn from Thai military coup Politics in new democracies like Thailand has always sprung surprises. While Prime Minister Thaksin Sinawatra visited New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Thai army chief Gen. Sonthi Boonyaratglin led a bloodless coup and declared himself the temporary prime minister. It is interesting to observe that the coup did not spark social unrest, as if it were business as usual. On top of that, the tacit endorsement of revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej was a crucial factor behind the smooth process of the coup.

The Indonesian government will soon decide whether to impose a state of emergency in Aceh, the rebellious and resource-rich region on the tip of Sumatra island. But if Jakarta were serious about ending the separatist rebellion in Aceh, it would not be talking about a military solution. It would be talking instead about ending corruption, upholding the law, and making the conflict less profitable for all parties concerned. Now more than ever, the war in Aceh is about money, and no one is clean. An autonomy law, adopted last year, has created a giant slush fund for provincial officials from oil and gas revenues, with no effective controls over how the money is spent. Every day, the local press carries stories about misspent funds, missing budget allocations, suspected cronyism, or crooked contractors.

The Indonesian government currently finds itself at a major crossroads over its policy towards Aceh, the province on the northern tip of Sumatra where separatists have been waging an armed struggle for independence since 1976, driven on by decades of broken promises of greater autonomy from successive regimes in Jakarta. On the surface the options are relatively simple. Plan A would be to cancel the intermittent negotiations, impose a formal state of emergency and let the armed forces (with the elite Kopassus special forces very much in the vanguard) do whatever is necessary to crush the Free Aceh Movement (Gam).

Members of the Penan tribe of northeastern Borneo know that Batu Lawi, a 2,000-m sheer limestone pinnacle, is a demon-haunted place to be avoided at all costs. To Bruno Manser, however, Batu Lawi represented everything he loved about the untouched forest of the region. He almost perished trying to reach its summit in 1988. As he told friends, he spent 24 hours hanging from a rope, unable to reach the rock face. Only a desperate swing brought him within grabbing distance of the rock.
