Wang Chen;  
During the Cold War,the United States implemented a series of policies towards Indonesia.From the"wooing"policy to"covert action"and policy of"moderate tolerance",and then to policy of"pandering"to the tide of the rising of Indonesian nationalism,the United States expected to use nationalism to prevent communism.But with the Indonesian nationalism being more aggressive,Sukarno took a radical route,which had led to an increasing of the contradictions between the U.S.and Indonesia.The United States began to change its policy towards Indonesia,the policy of"containing"Sukarno became the core of the United States’Indonesian policy.Finally in the"Transition to the New Order",September 30th of 1965,the Indonesian army,who had been secretly supported by the U.S.in a long time,forced Sukarno to step down.Then,the United States prevented Indonesia falling down into the Communist camp,which achieved the basic goal of America.Among the major factors affecting the change of the United States’Indonesian policy,the recognition of its own strategic interests was the leading and most important one.
