Skip to comments.Iraq: Shia Cleric Issues Threat To US Forces
Posted on 06/21/2014 8:34:19 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
A Shia cleric loyal to anti-US cleric Moqtada al Sadr has warned that the 300 US military advisers en route to Iraq will be attacked.
In a sermon from Baghdad's Sadr City district, Nassir al Saedi threatened what he called "the occupier", saying: "We will be ready for you if you are back."
The warning comes after President Barack Obama announced the deployment of US military advisers, made up mostly of special forces.
Their aim is to help the Iraqi government in its fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group of Sunni extremists who have seized cities and towns across northern Iraq.
Al Saedi's threats highlight a potentially dangerous secondary front for US forces heading to Iraq. Moqtada al Sadr's militia fought the Americans in at least two rounds of street warfare during the eight years US troops were on the ground there.

Obama’s feeble response was completely inadequate and completely too late.
How many body bags is Obama sending to Iraq?
O Magic 8 ball, what say you?
“I see a Hugh Obama pooch screw”
I believe he wants Americans murdered.
Let’s see. The Iraqi government doesn’t want Americans there. The Sunni ISIL wants to kill Americans. The Mahdi Army of the Shia wants to kill Americans. 300 troops are going to help how? Yes indeed. Bug out.
If you kill an American. I will drop a 20 megaton nuclear weapon on Mecca at the height of The Haj! I will also drop a 20 megaton nuclear weapon on Medina at the same moment. There is nothing your god can do to stop it. There is nothing all of Islam can do to stop it. The only thing that you may do is to use all of your earthly power to stop the killing of Americans. If you do that, you may live and continue the charade that is your religion. If not, you will die. Millions of your followers will die and the entire world will know immediately and forever that you worship a demon-possessed pedophile and a false god and there is nothing you may do to change that fact. Islam constitutes a 'clear and present danger' to the United States and Americans. We are no longer willing to tolerate that existential threat.
So you’re going to be a speechwriter for President Cruz? LOL
I can think of worse jobs. But, I don't think Senator Cruz has said anything this vitriolic.
Unfortunately B.O. is president.
We’ll turn you into sand glass!!!
The difference being that I actually love my country. I want it and its people to prosper and I would fulfill my oath of office to protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.
I guarantee you I’ll be a fundraiser/bundler for that individual.
The US had this guy in their sites in 2004, but my understanding is the US was convinced not to kill him by Senior cleric Ali al-Sistani. Probably one of the many big mistakes in managing the Iraq war....
Don’t get me wrong, I agreed fully with your reply to the Shia Terrorist Cleric. I truly believe ideas expounded on FR would go a long way toward solving all of our economic and foreign policy dilemmas. But nobody will follow them.
We could form a PAC.
This isn’t going to go well for the murderous, subhuman trooglodytes-from-hell, muzzie filth. Bring your own body bags, camel and goat abusers.
