BAGHDAD Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on Saturday called on Iraq's parliament to reject a U.S.-Iraqi security pact as tens of thousands of his followers rallied in Baghdad against the deal.

Ungrateful wretches......what happened to the purple fingers?
LOL. Could agree more. My first reaction to the headline was: “Why is this guy still alive?”
I couldn’t agree more!
“Ungrateful wretches......what happened to the purple fingers?”
Don’t let a few out of millions color your whole picture
Why is that overstuffed Shi’ite terrorist still alive?
