Sadr started this latest violence after we shut down his propaganda newspaper. It was probably his stupidest move to date (and there are many), but I think that was what prompted us to rethink letting him out of the playpen. Oh, and he also openly announced he's aligning himself with Hamas and Hezbollah
Before all of this he was just a demagogue, now he's a stated enemy of the US. There are unfortunate consequences to that distinction, as I expect our Khomeini wannabe is about to learn.
