Please note that none of the above runs against the interests of the
Australian bourgeoisie, much to the contrary: expelling Holland from
Indonesia was a potential asset, as was demonstrated later by the
tragic events of 1965. This does not judge the honesty of the
militants and even leaderships of the organizations mentioned by
Greg. I am just putting the whole thing in a particular perspective,
which is the perspective of the Australian ruling class. Am I wrong?
