This dangerous war

Conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan reacts to the shootings at Fort Hood yesterday:

The danger of this war on terror, it turns out, is that it not only collapses when it hits the ground in Muslim countries – as the sheer impossibility of using force to control Islamism in Iraq and Afghanistan reveals itself – but that its religious nature can divide the West as well, rendering a minority suspect and further undermining the chances of a multi-faith democracy successfully fighting a religious war without succumbing to more primal identities. Every which way, Osama wins.

There are no good answers, it seems.
