it's not surprising but it's still pretty unjustified. If the countries giving aid to indonesia began to try to get involved in political or other internal affairs of the country not affected by the tsunami, then their fears would have some basis behind it, but this is just rediculous. Although of course it's only a small group of people voicing the opinion that the nations giving aid are trying to colonize them.
