I think that Aldolfo misses the point. What happened here is that Mao sold
out the revolution in Indonesia for its own interests. Mao applied the same
line in Indonesia as Stalin did in the 2nd chinese revolution. Both led to
the slaughter of the masses in the interests of building socialism in one
country. Louis is basically right, Aldolfo and nothing you can say here can
change that.
