Remember al Sadr and his Shiite militia?

Moqtada al-Sadr's was a splinter group, which was disowned by every other Shi'ite cleric in Iraq.

As a group, only the Sunnis have been resentful of our role.

The Shia didn't welcome us as liberators either. Only the Kurds welcomed us as liberators. The Shia remembered our idle reaction to Saddam's onslaught in 1991 after the first Persian Gulf War.
