1964: President Sukarno is rapidly losing control of Indonesia. 1965: the relatively unknown General Suharto seizes power after a botched coup. The effects of the coup are disastrous—an estimated 500,000 ethnic Chinese and suspected communists were slaughtered in the ensuing genocide. This committee focuses on the events leading up to the bloody coup. The CIA is actively encouraging separatism to halt Sukarno's influence. The KGB is assisting the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) in fomenting social unrest and seeking to install a communist vassal. The U.S. Embassy is trying to foster good governance. Power is held by a collapsing triumvirate: the PKI, Indonesian Army, and Sukarno. Sumatra and Celebes seek to declare independence. These entities will fight to gain power and privilege throughout the weekend, but what will be the tipping point? Who will triumph in the newest Cold War hotspot?
