NAJAF, Iraq (AFP) Iraqi Shiite radical leader Moqtada al-Sadr on Tuesday threatened to end the ceasefire of his feared Mahdi Army militia which he announced last August.
"The Jaish al-Mahdi (Mahdi Army) is hand in hand with the Iraqi people to achieve security, stability and liberation. If it is of interest to lift the ceasefire to achieve the aims and goals, it will be announced in a separate statement," Sadr said in a communique released by his office.

Is “Moqtada” the Arabic word for manic-depressive? Just yesterday he was looking for religious cover for disarming and demobilizing his militia.

The MSM is attempting their own version of the surge. Mookies Militia got their butts kicked and now he's throwing all these threats out there to try and save face and the MSM is accommodating him.
