NAJAF, Iraq – Anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr called on the Iraqi resistance Wednesday to stage "revenge operations" against American forces to protest Israel's Gaza offensive.

The statement issued by his office in the Shiite holy city of Najaf came as criticism is mounting over civilian deaths in Gaza.

The State Department dismissed al-Sadr's calls, describing them as "outrageous."

Looks like they are enjoying their new found freedoms since their country was liberated from murdering mental midgets masquerading as leaders.

It irks me no end this guy is still breathing. We had 300,00 rifles in theater there, and somehow we managed to go 0 for 300,000 on a trigger squeeze in his general direction.

Now THAT is Bush's fault!!

Early in the war, he murdered his rival clerics who favored the US. We never arrested him. He is as bad as Saddam, and deserved the same fate.

He is also a time-bomb waiting to go off. He will activate when out forces leave, or as they leave.

Shoot him and every shi’ite a-hole who makes one wrong move. Every one of them that is lost improves the gene pool and offers a faint glimmer of hope that maybe in another 1200-1500 years those people could evolve into normal human beings capable of thinking for themselves.

Fixed the headline:

Iraqn: Cleric urges 'revenge operations' over Gaza (Muqtada al-Sadr)

The statement issued by his office in the Shiite holy city of Najaf came as criticism is mounting over civilian deaths in Gaza.

That coward has been hiding out in Iran for at least a year now. He's not in Najaf. His "office" is. Mookie Sadr is a chickensh!t.

Sadr's radical Mahdi Army -- which fought two wars with US troops in 2004 and another one in the spring of 2008 - hey, how did those work out for you, Mookie?-- has threatened to resume attacks on American targets inside Iraq over Washington's support for the Israeli assault on Gaza.

Bring it on, scumface.

Regarding Retarda al Sadr, I think the only nuance to be determined is, feetfirst or towelheadfirst into the wood chipper.

My only quibble would be the part limiting it to those who make one wrong move. Why should the world have to wait 1200-1500 years? ;’)

Many years overdue...
