Indonesia: the ongoing militant threat The Australian government issued an advisory April 20, saying militants planned an attack against Indonesia that day and warning against all nonessential travel to the country. Although warnings for a specific date can be triggered for various reasons, such as the anniversary of a past attack, they are unusual. In this case, then, either Australia believed it had credible intelligence on an imminent attack -- or intelligence services simply lost sight of a suspect they believed was in the late stages of an attack operation. Although the day passed without incident, there is reason to believe the threat remains.

Indonesian attacks on rebels continue Hundreds of paratroopers jumped into combat while warplanes swooped in to fire rockets at a suspected rebel base in the hills outside the provincial capital. Staged more for TV cameras than for tactical needs, the spectacular attack last Monday launched Indonesia's biggest military operation since it invaded East Timor in 1975. But a week into the campaign against separatist rebels in Aceh province, the fighting already looks a lot like the guerrilla war that people here have endured for 27 years, one marked by few strategic victories and allegations of widespread rights abuses.

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).
