But all question only have one answer. Really? Yes, it a love to fatherland Indonesia. They want to free from colonization
Some of them fight with two kinds of strategies. There are open fight and guerilla. Open fight is applied on forest, hill or field. And guerilla is applied with sneak attack, usually they used knife or small sword. They explored forest and hiding on cave or bunker.
