"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Mr. Sadr Stokes the Flames just as the Tehrrorists of Tehran Instruct

From the NY Times:

‘“Tens of thousands of protesters loyal to Moktada al-Sadr, the Shiite cleric, took to the streets of the holy city of Najaf on Monday in an extraordinarily disciplined rally to demand an end to the American military presence in Iraq, burning American flags and chanting “Death to America!”’

Who is the enemy? I think you know the answer and many will agree that it is the Americans. Further the Times analyzes the event (bold mine):

“it was an obvious effort by Mr. Sadr to show the extent of his influence here in Iraq, even though he did not appear at the rally. Mr. Sadr went underground after the American military began a new security push”

Mr. Sadr is underground and no one knows where he is. Where in the world is Mr. Sadr? Mr. Sadr is getting his batteries re-charged so to speak in Iran where efforts continue in the mission of sowing and stoking violence in Iraq. Sunni, Shia, it doesn’t matter to the Tehrrorists of Tehran; all is necessary in their take over; all are expendable in their divine quest of wiping the infidel off the face of the earth. Mr. Sadr is doing the bidding of the Iranian leadership, by keeping the enemy the U.S. and not those that are truly doing Iraqis harm.

Spoken in absentia for Mr. Sadr over loud speakers:

“Oh Iraqi people, you are aware, as 48 months have passed, that we live in a state of oppression, unjust repression and occupation,” the statement read. “Forty-eight hard months — that make four years — in which we have gotten nothing but more killing, destruction and degradation. Tens of people are being killed every day. Tens are disabled every day.”

America made efforts to stoke sectarian strife, and here I would like to tell you, the sons of the two rivers, that you have proved your ability to surpass difficulties and sacrifice yourselves, despite the conspiracies of the evil powers against you.”

Oh people of Iraq, do not be swayed by the words of Mr. Sadr. You suffer each day and have suffered for years prior, but please do not be taken in by the likes of Mr. Sadr. He offers you more of the same as Hussein only multiplied. Your destiny does lie in your hands and the U.S. and coalition members are trying to hold the wolves at bay so that you may pick yourselves up and live more peaceful lives. Not the lives you would live under yet another monster.

Mr. Sadr is too respectable a way to refer to this killer. This paper and other papers can refer to the U.S. President as Bush, but al Sadr? He’s Mr. Sadr.
