Case in Point

On May 16 Shi'a Cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr
had this to say:

"I demand several things, including punishing Saddam and calling on the Iraqi government, religious movements and political factions to work hard to kick out the occupier," al-Sadr said. "I want the immediate withdrawal of the occupation forces."

This is what we're talking about; a prominent group leader urging peace between Sunnis and Shi'as, and everyone else for one clear purpose-expelling the occupier.
Well, we can't have that, can we? So a string of relative muslim clerics are assassinated...the very next day. Two Sunni clerics and a Shi'a cleric. Hey, that'll take the piss out of 'em, right? Wrong. As of late, relations between the two groups have only been strengthened. With the pressure on, US forces attempt a "Baghdad Crackdown" on the people, I mean insurgents. We need to get our men and women OUT of there.(Thanks to Raed for the info-best website for real news on Iraq from a very human and secular point of view!)
