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.
Not so 'feared' now.
Huh? does fatboy even have a clue whats going on? Or maybe it’s this so called “journalist” that is clueless.
These proclimations are getting pretty schizo, and rapid fire out of his “offices”....Not a good sign...>Bo)
Is “Moqtada” the Arabic word for manic-depressive? Just yesterday he was looking for religious cover for disarming and demobilizing his militia.
He sounds desperate.
It’s time to let our Marines do that voodoo that they do so well.
