I'm skeptical of the idea that the Shi'ite government of Iran would purposely destroy a Shi'ite shrine. Also, Sadr is acting like a peacemaker in this situation. If it was his intention to exploit Sunni/Shi'ite conflict, he wouldn't be doing so. There are any number of other players who could have pulled off the bombing of the Golden Dome.
In any war there is what you call acceptable losses. The mullahs ruling Iran are insane and it should be no surprise that they did the bombing. Not only that, president Bush vowed that the Shrine would be rebuilt. Perhaps the mullahs knew that and so did not consider it much of a loss.
