All we did when we went into Iraq to take out Saddam is create a vacuum which will eventually be filled by someone as bad or worse. That man appears like it will eventually be Al Sadr. All of the self-congratulations going around among the supporters of Bush Iraq policy and the recent troop escalation hinges on what appears to be a cease fire ordered by Muqtada. And I'll bet something else. When a Democrat is elected and we pull out of Iraq, Al Qaeda better be ready to run, because Sadr's people will take them out. And then the fun begins: a three way partition of what was once Iraq. This has been long predicted, for better or for worse. Remember the chants of "Muqtada, Muqtada" just before Saddam was dropped with the noose? Remember that sound, because we're going to be hearing a lot of it. And we have our friends at the PNAC to thank for all that. Back then we were too busy wagging the dog.

If FB decides to reinstate the account of the former "president" tomorrow, I expect an uptick of activity here for random updates ...
