You should have kill him
Actually why did malagasy choose Indonesia? Indonesia is just too far away
If you notice it again. Actually it was France that chooses Indonesia. France was in a state that they could manage their own rebellions without foreign intervention. And one thing that the Indonesians was famous of right now is their success in Vietnam (oops spoilers). Indonesia on that time was the best on volunteers, their army was capable of fighting against all odds, and won.
During this time we also know that inevitably the US will call in their allies for this African Problem. Of course, those allies are capable on fighting, but not as strong as Indonesia. Meanwhile, France also came into nasty resorts...
Malagasy, regularly just follows the French Commune and 'meh' for this handover. They were not powerful enough to establish their own nation.
We should also know that in that moment Asia-Africa Conference was super weak, therefore no meaningful sparks were created.
You'll see in the next chapter, that French demands were not only that. It is just that moment was very tense that France immediately calls Indonesia for attention.
