Indonesia
Reports have suggested that America could target parts of Indonesia, where Islamic militants have gained a strong foothold. The head of the country’s National Intelligences Agency, Lieutenant General Hendropriyono, recently confirmed that al-Qaeda members have been fighting on the island of Sulawesi. Local militant groups - such as Laskar Jihad which has trained thousands to fight against Christians - are believed to have links with al-Qaeda. Washington is said to be frustrated by the unwillingness of the Indonesian security forces to rein in Islamic militants.
