GAM Rebels Strengthen Hold in Aceh
The flag of Gerakan Aceh Merderka (GAM), known as the Free Aceh Movement, is posted by a rebel security checkpoint in a remote part of Aceh Besar. The GAM rebels have been fighting for independence from Indonesia since 1976. The government in Jakarta has launched multiple counter-seperatist campaigns that have led to the death of over 15,000 people. Prior to the December 26 tsunami, Aceh was under martial law as the military launched an intensive operation to crush the rebels.

Before 26 Desember 2004 GAM was almost completely wiped out, i think suchs as Tim-Tim will never happen again. NAD will always be a part of RI, like Papua.

Konflik Ambalat

Panglima TNI: Sikapi Secara Dingin dan Diplomatis

[JAKARTA] Ketegangan di Blok Ambalat antara Indonesia dan Malaysia sebaiknya disikapi dingin dan diplomatis. Untuk itu, Panglima TNI Marsekal Djoko Suyanto menegaskan pihaknya tidak mengeluarkan perintah tembak bagi kapal perang dan pesawat Malaysia yang melanggar batas wilayah Indonesia.

Sejauh ini permasalahan itu sedang dibahas oleh Departemen Luar Negeri (Deplu) masing-masing Negara. Pernyataan Panglima disampaikan ketika dicegat wartawan dalam seminar "Kepemimpinan Nasional" yang diselenggarakan oleh Yayasan Kartika Eka Paksi di Jakarta, Kamis (1/3).

"Tidak kita hadapi dengan konfrontasi, kalau dalam situasi damai ya diusir saja. Surat protes diplomatik sudah disampaikan ke Deplu masing-masing. Jadi tidak usah ditembak," kata Panglima. Ia memerintahkan supaya tidak ada provokasi yang bias memperkeruh suasana.

Sepanjang tahun 2007 ini, diindikasikan memang ada pelanggaran wilayah yang dilakukan oleh Malaysia. Paling tidak tercatat pelanggaran dilakukan oleh beberapa kapal perang dan pesawat Malaysia.

Menanggapi keinginan Panglima Armada RI Kawasan Timur (Pangarmatim) yang menginginkan adanya kewenangan untuk boleh menembak kapal atau pesawat yang melanggar batas wilayah, Panglima mengatakan, hal itu tidak boleh dilakukan. "Ini perintah Panglima. Pangarmatim tidak boleh mengeluh," tegasnya.

Djoko mengatakan, pelanggaran itu harus diselidiki dulu kebenarannya. Akhir Februari lalu, sejak 24 Februari 2007, pukul 10.00 WITA, kapal perang Malaysia jenis patroli KD Budiman-3909 melintas dengan kecepatan 10 knot memasuki wilayah NKRI sejauh 1 mil laut. Pelanggaran kedua, terjadi sore harinya pada pukul 15.00 WITA, dimana kapal perang jenis patroli KD Sri Perlis-47 kembali melintas dengan kecepatan 10 knot memasuki wilayah NKRI sejauh 2 mil laut. Setelah dibayang-bayangi KRI Weling dari unsur Koarmatim, kedua kapal berhasil diusir keluar wilayah RI.

Namun peristiwa yang membuat "geregetan" dan emosional para prajurit TNI AL dari Koarmatim ini kembali terulang untuk ketiga kalinya, tepatnya sehari kemudian pada 25 Februari 2007 pukul. 09.00 WITA KD. Sri Perlis- 47 memasuki wilayah NKRI sejauh 3000 yard pada posisi 04 08 00 U - 118 07 30 T. KD Sri Perlis -47 akhirnya berhasil diusir ke luar wilayah RI oleh KRI Untung Suropati-872. Usai mengusir KD Perlis-47, tidak lama kemudian pelanggaran keempat terjadi lagi pada pukul 11.00 WITA, saat sebuah pesawat udara patroli maritim Malaysia jenis Beech Craft B 200 T Superking melintas memasuki wilayah NKRI sejauh 3000 yard.

Empat kapal perang TNI AL masing-masing KRI Ki Hadjar Dewantara, KRI Keris, KRI Untung Suropati dan KRI Weling yang tergabung dalam operasi "Balat Sakti", hingga saat ini masih melaksanakan patroli pengamanan perbatasan di wilayah tersebut

Sebenarnya pelanggaran yang dilakukan kapal perang dan pesawat udara Malaysia tidak terjadi itu saja, pada tahun 2006 lalu pihak Gugus Tempur Koarmatim mencatat 35 kali pelanggaran telah dilakukan unsur-unsur Malaysia. Meski selama ini dapat dimonitor dan selalu dihalau oleh kapal-kapal perang TNI AL yang rutin menggelar operasi bersandi "Balat Sakti" di wilayah perbatasan tersebut, namun perlu adanya perhatian yang serius dan tindakan nyata dari Pemerintah Indonesia berupa komplain diplomatik yang berisi protes keras terhadap tindakan Malaysia itu.

Berdasarkan Rule of Engagement (Aturan Pelibatan) yang berlaku saat ini yaitu Surat Keputusan Panglima TNI Nomor : Skep/158/IV/2005 tanggal 21 April 2005 tentang Aturan Pelibatan unsur TNI AL di wilayah perairan Kalimantan Timur, perbatasan RI-Malaysia di masa damai, mengharuskan TNI AL pada bersikap banyak mengalah pada kondisi tersebut, baik dalam menghadapi niat permusuhan (Hostile Intent) maupun menghadapi tindakan permusuhan (Hostile Act). Dalam aturan itu pihak TNI AL hanya boleh melepaskan tembakan setelah diawali keluarnya tembakan dari pihak Malaysia terlebih dahulu.

Prajurit Armatim menginginkan revisi aturan tersebut dengan membolehkan melakukan mengeluarkan tembakan terlebih dahulu sebagai tindakan peringatan atas kapal-kapal Malaysia yang kerap kali melanggar.***

its just saying how there has been many many illegal border crossings made by the Malaysian Navy. And also, the Indonesian Navy personel that are currently patroling the Ambalat area are complaining how the existing rule of engagement doesnt allow them to shoot the Malaysian Navy that has crossed the border unless the Indon are getting shot at first. Theyr are revising that the existing rule of engagement to be changed because there has been too many illegal crossings.
