They don't want to be picked up by Indonesia because Indonesia will not help them, Australia will. I don't see the problem you're getting at?
I'll be honest and say I wouldn't want to be picked up Indonesia either. Indonesia does not have the resources or framework in place to deal with asylum seekers. They are not signatories to the international refugee convention, and they do not have refugee legislation.
I don't think being abrasive and nasty about BlossumPossum's ignorance on this topic is really going to make them receptive.
I know I'm abrasive often, but this is an opportunity to educate someone on something really important and she seems quite receptive.

Surprise surprise, there are a**hole refugees. Let us judge all refugees on this basis, because we have no locally grown a**holes of our own. No, none at all.
The media paints an awful picture I agree, but there is so much more to it. It's great you are open minded enough to look further than what news outlets and current affairs programs try to shove down our throats.
