Sign Language for Islamists

Sign Language for Islamists

In Sadr City, Hashem Hadi Obaid translates sermons by preachers loyal to Moktada al-Sadr, the anti-American cleric, into sign language.Iraq's most anti-western demagogue is determined to bring the message to those who can't hear it.


And this news from Iraq:

Muqtada al-Sadr followers refuse to disband militia in Iraq


Followers of hardline cleric Muqtada al-Sadr raised the stakes Sunday in the showdown with Iraq's government, refusing to disband their militia as the U.S. military reported an "uptick" of fighting in the Iraqi capital.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, meanwhile, assured visiting Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that he will not back down in his confrontation with Shiite militias, even as mortar shells fired from Shiite areas struck the U.S.-protected Green Zone.

In a sign of that resolve, Iraqi soldiers took control Sunday of the last stronghold of al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia in the southern city of Basra, where an Iraqi offensive last month triggered the current wave of Shiite fighting.

Al-Maliki, a Shiite, has demanded that al-Sadr disband his Mahdi Army, the country's biggest Shiite militia, or his followers will not be allowed to run in provincial elections this fall.

Wild Thing's comment........

The Sadr thug brigade is going to continue to whittle down to nothing as they get their clocks cleaned. He’s now been thoroughly discredited and isolated by the other Shite and Iraqi political parties.

So Mookie sits in his little Iranian hole awaiting orders. They will soon toss him to the wind as he will no longer serve any purpose. Not alive anyway.

Word is they will be having him leave Iran. When that happens, he’s done. Maybe even better to have him killed was he is still in Iran.

I think you are right WT. Mookie's boys can cause trouble and make some news, but I don't think they can any longer change the course of the effects of the surge. The Iraqis are feeling the effects of life without constant fighting and terrorism. Hopefully there will be fewer young guys wanting to join or stay with Mookie's loonies. The American backed security forces seem to be getting all the recruits they need.

Mookeyman's boys are just a bunch of thugs. Didn't momma give them enough love when they were growing up?
Or are they the easily led off the cliff crowd?
Both I think.
Brainwashed towel headed heathens badly in need of a smack upside their fool heads.
Mookey's smart, I'll give him that, but he's a bully of the wrong kind. I wonder how many friends he had growing up.

Ok, here's the plan: We send some Marines to the Iranian border, have them ring the doorbell and call out "can Mookie come out and play?" He will, of course say "no," then we call him a chicken-sh*t and go kill all of his men. Come on! How many deaf moojes are out there? He must be desperate.

Just musing here. Mooky has been marginalized but even more could be done to dampen the spirit of his boys and all the rest of the ragheads for that matter. Psyops of the best order.
In the May 2008 edition of American Rifleman there is a feature by Major John L. Plaster—Wreaking Havoc One Round At A Time .
Nearly 40 years ago I heard rumors of this while in country, seems that they were true. From 1968-73 Military Assistance Command Vietnam, Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG) conducted Psyops (Operation Eldest Son, Italian Green and Pole Bean) against the NVA and Communist troops behind the lines in South Vietnam, North Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos to sabotage enemy ammunition supplies, from small arms up to mortars and grenades. This was the brainchild of Col. John K. Singlaub. a WWII veteran of the OSS. This precluded the SOG from using captured ammunition in their weapons to the extent that they bought Russian made ammunition from a Finnish middleman for their own use. Those SOG commandos won ten Medals of Honor during that time. We were instructed to never pick up any ammo or arms found, theirs or ours as they may have been part of this program. I would hope that a similar program is being instituted in Iraq and Afghanistan to temper the raghead's zeal for all those 72 virgins. Now a good head shot with a .50 Cal would sure mess up Mookies headdress and fix all those bad teeth permantly.

Tom, yes...."The Iraqis are feeling the effects of life without constant fighting and terrorism."....and being around the troops, their love of life, the way they are the American in all of them rubs off too I think. It is contagious. The people in Iraq they see how life is now just like you said!! No fear like they had before and so many things better then ever, they will keep wanting it to be better too I think.

PeteSuj, LOL

When I first read this story my very first thougtht was maybe a lot of Mookies men have lost their hearing from all the bombs that went off my mistake while they were packing them.

Tincan Sailor, heh heh I bet they are wishing for that too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 21, 2008 06:14 PM

Jack, that is really interesting, thank you for sharing about that. Yes maybe they are doing that too in Iraq and Afghanistan.
