I'd like to think that, but they've already got their hands more than full elsewhere, and I don't intend to kick off hostilities until after the big players are committed in the main arenas.
One thing I've kept in mind through this whole process is the Indonesian leadership is acutely aware of of their limitations and their inability to stand up for even a moment against the US, or even UK. They won't be moving until they're sure the only opposition they'll face are from the local region.
