Indonesia is a hotbed of Muslim insurrection, in that the government is and has been for decades controlled by Catholics. Recent years, and especially recent months, have put them in the news when visitors to the island nation are kidnapped and brutally killed if ransom not paid. This trend has recently spread into Russia, with the drama of an entire theater audience held hostage to Muslim protesters. None of this is done at the hand of the Bush Administration, to support their demands for essential martial law within the US. These situations existed prior to 911, and have their own force and fury outside of parochial US interests.
