War

It's not so much a war on terrorism as a war on civil rights -- from all sides. Fundamentalists of every stripe dislike human and civil rights (except perhaps for themselves); the people supposedly protecting us from these fundamentalists need to -- or want to -- abbrogate those rights in the name of that protection, or use it as a pretext for their own fundamentalist or whatever purposes.

As with modern wars in general, it's basically the fighters vs. the rest, not one country or armed force vs another.
