This article explains that it is the United States' problem to bring Indonesia back to a position of neutrality in Americans' favor, following the failure of a rebellion. The basic economic and political problems in India that gave rise to the rebellion are more serious than ever, and the resort to force has aggravated the underlying grievances of the people in the outer islands against the central government. U.S. government and American enterprises in Indonesia refused to support the rebels despite their anti-Communist and pro-Western complexion. Helping Indonesia economically will be easier than it was in the past.
