Expand history section[edit]

The history section really needs to be expanded. --AW 19:06, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

I would also suggest to revise the short description about Konfrontasi, as the Konfrontasi was not at all incited by "a territorial dispute". Indonesia has never sought claims over Sarawak and (as it was called back in 1963) North Borneo. The impetus for Konfrontasi was manifold - but Indonesia's main objection was Sarawak and North Borneo's fait accompli inclusion into the Malaysia Plan. Both the Philippines and Indonesia called for a UN sponsored referendum to determine the wishes of the peoples of the British controlled territories. Border incidents that occurred between 1963 - 1966 were Indonesian intrusions to destabilize Sarawak (& Sabah) in support of local resistance groups (TNKU in Brunei, the CCO in Sarawak) against the Malaysia project. I would suggest to insert a link to the Konfrontasi article.

Merge to Borneo?[edit]

Note for editors:[edit]

The above discussed merger was carried out (as seen here). However, per this discussion, the Kalimantan page was recreated and is now used exclusively to explain the term itself; per the above mentioned discussion, any information about the island of Borneo should be placed in the Borneo article.

That was the intent of the changes as I understood it, and it makes sense to me. So, this article (Kalimantan) is not much more than a dismbig page, and info can also go into the four provinces articles. Maybe there is also need to put info in about Kalimantan as it fits into Indonesian history. --Merbabu (talk) 02:14, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Exactly. I wrote the above to let editors know about the decision made in that discussion so that they do not try and turn the current article into a redirect per the above, undeletable discussion. I almost did that a while ago. Crisco 1492 (talk) 10:24, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
