WAR: Terror in Indonesia

The war on terror comes in earnest to the world's fifth-most-populous nation and most populous Muslim nation with a pair of bomb blasts claiming nearly 200 lives in Bali. This was as inevitable as it is disturbing; the Indonesian archipelago, with its scores of islands, dense jungles and Gordian knot of local ethnic and religious rivalries, will be a hellish place to stage a manhunt. Give some credit here to Ralph Peters for beating the drum on this locale as one of the key spots in this war, although I still think Peters is too quick to dismiss the importance of cleaning out the cesspool of the Middle East.
