And why? Where does Indonesia fit into the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria?” According to the West’s official narrative, Indonesia doesn’t fit in at all except in the most abstract, ideological way imaginable.
But if you understand that:
1. The US and its allies created ISIS on purpose to fight its proxy wars in the Middle East, North Africa, Central, East, and Southeast Asia for it;
2. The US is NOT fighting ISIS by any means, and is only using the organization’s existence in Syria and beyond to justify extraterritorial military aggression and meddling across the globe;
3. Indonesia has been defying US pressure to join Washington’s proxy conflict with China in the South China Sea and;
4. Indonesia has been fostering closer economic and military ties instead with China itself …
…then ISIS attacking Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta makes perfect sense.
