Sadr Lashes Out at 'Terrorist' Gates

Muqtada al-Sadr says he will not enter any political process that would allow US forces to remain in Iraq.

Alalam news


April 12

Iraq's Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr on Saturday lashed out at Robert Gates, saying the US defense secretary will always remain his enemy because he is the occupier of Iraq.

"You have always been my enemy. And you will always be my enemy till the last drop of my blood," Sadr said in a statement.

He was reacting to comments by Gates in which he reportedly said, referring to Sadr, that those who are prepared to work peacefully "within the political process in Iraq" are not the enemies of the United States.

"Which political process do you want to involve me in when you are occupying my land," Sadr asked.
"I heard the statement of the terrorist American defense minister and I feel compelled to give a decent response to such a terrorist. I have no enemy but you. You are the occupier."
Sadr said he will keep resisting the US presence in Iraq in a "way that we consider suitable."
The cleric also told his Mahdi Army that he will no longer accept "any armed men on the streets when they are empty of the occupier."
"If the occupier leaves the cities, we should not use our weapons. Don't raise your weapons against Iraqis as long as they don't help the occupier. I also call on the Iraqi government to back its people to rid the land of the occupier."

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

"And you will always be my enemy till the last drop of my blood,"

Hopefully, from Mookie's lips to God's ear...and soon.

Sadr is feeling the heat from the Locals heh heh

* Coalition forces killing "a senior intelligence officer of al Qaeda in Iraq's network in Diyala. Arkan Khalaf Khudayyir, also known as Karrarr . . . was described as a senior intelligence leader . . . who facilitated suicide bombing attacks in the Diyala River Valley," and this same "network also has been responsible for attacks in Baghdad, 'to include attacks by female suicide bombers.'"

* "A document seized by US forces in Balad, and a communique from al Qaeda in Iraq's leader intercepted by U.S. intelligence (painting) a bleak picture of the terror group's ability to conduct operations in former strongholds." A captured diary written by a "emir" Abu Tariq "documents the terror group's decline, the desertion of its fighters, and logistical problems incurred in the wake of the surge. The diary is also an intelligence coup for U.S. forces. Tariq names current members of the groups and the companies and individuals used in al Qaeda's support network in the region." Hillary said that if media reports are accurate, the diary requires a willing suspension of disbelief.

* Al Qaeda in Iraq, "driven from its havens in Baghdad and the surrounding belts region, and most recently Diyala," has tried to regroup in Mosul, "which has emerged as the latest battleground." On January 25, 'lame duck' al-Maliki announced a new offensive to kick al Qaeda out of the Mosul region, where al Qaeda "maintains its only established supply line to Syria." The operation has gone better than expected, as you can see by all the media coverage it's not getting.

* On the political front, Iraqi leaders pushed through a provincial powers law that helps define Iraqi federalism, and sets the stage for provincial elections later this year," which is on top of enactment of an "amnesty law to resolve the status of many Iraqis held in Iraqi custody," which is on top of enactment in January of a "de-Ba'athification law that allows mid-level Baath party members to re-enter political and civic life," which is on top of enactment in December of "a pension law that will allow tens of thousands of Sunnis to collect the retirement benefits they were promised." The proposed oil law hasn't passed yet, but "the central government in Iraq continues to distribute oil revenue to the provinces" as if it had.

Now that 12 of the 18 "benchmarks" have been met, liberals complain that the laws passed only after sharp bickering and because lawmakers traded favors by voting for one another's bills -- mammoth abominations unheard of in a democracy.

Before the recent crackdown against militias in Iraq, the New York Times complained that al-Maliki wasn't cracking down enough against militias in Iraq. Now the New York Times complains that Crackdown on Militias May Add to Instability in Iraq. But if the Mookster's idiotic provocations accomplished anything, it's to get the Sunni, Kurd and Shiite factions in the government behind al-Maliki and against the Mookster. Cracking down on Shia militias was another of the Democrats' hallowed "benchmarks," but that was until al-Maliki started cracking down on Shia militias. Bush-Petraeus-McCain won the argument, which is why the losercrats are looking sadr and sadr every day.

Al-Sadist is uglier than the Geico Cavemen! What an ugly piece of work. God made me out of dirt. Allah made him out of camel dung! Must be a shortage of DENTISTS in Arabiaville. That's right, all the quality dental universities are in AMERICA.

I love the Geico Cavemen commercials (the tv show kind of was really bad.) but anyway, Mookyman has got to go away really soon. He's a thorn in our side. I'm hoping that now that the Iraqis are stepping up to the plate, that they will take him out themselves.
I'm glad to see us taking more of a background to the Iraqis and I think they are rather enjoying their new found freedom.
Yes, we're going to be there for quite awhile until we know "for certain" that the Iraqis can stand up for themselves and that's okay. We're doing it right. Sure, I want to see this war end just as much as anyone else, but I want it done right, so my grandchildren don't have to go back. That is what the dummycraps do not understand.
Mookymans days are numbered.

Do any of these Moslem leaders ever visit a Dentist, Mookie looks like he has a mouthful of snot. Maybe that comes from eating too many pieces of goat shit.

al Sadr and Al Queda are losing. The Bush Administration finally has the right people in place, Gates and Gen Petraeus, to run the counterinsurgency properly. (I think Rumsfeld was a disaster). Now that large numbers of Iraqi civilians are turning on the terrorists, those terrorists are finding it very difficult to operate successfully, effectively or openly. Our Special Forces are having a field day now using captured documents and civilian informants to track down terrorist leaders and depots.

Our greatest stumbling block in the War on Terror right now is the US Congress(Dems and RINOs) and the US MSM. They are also losing in their anti war, anti US efforts.

Easy fix for this nutjob -- wasn't there a video about a new 50 cal. sniper rifle in today's news? Besides, he's so ugly even his momma won't kiss him!

"Muqtada al-Sadr says he will not enter any political process that would allow US forces to remain in Iraq."

That statement sounds like something a Democrat would say. Maybe Muqtada al-Sadr could be the solution to the party destructive battle going on between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The Democrats could nominate him as their presidential candidate at their convention in August. John Murtha would be a perfect running mate as VP.

On August 13, 2004 mookie was trapped and surrounded at the Imam Ali shrine where on August 25, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, arrived in Iraq and brokered a ceasefire. On August 30, a tentative peace agreement was reached between the Iraqi government and al-Sadr to disarm his resistance in Sadr City, Baghdad. But the next day, Prime Minister Iyad Allawi unilaterally pulled out of talks, cancelling the peace proposal. On February 13, 2007 Muqtada al-Sadr left Iraq and fled to Iran, he should have been taken out in 2004 but now he's back with his Iranian backing, he is protected by Maliki another former Iranian defector. It's time for Maliki to take him out.

Mark it is awful, on his trips to Iran he should have Amhadnut job get him a dentist. He sure spends a lot of time in Iran.

Tom....."Our greatest stumbling block in the War on Terror right now is the US Congress(Dems and RINOs) and the US MSM"..... they sure are.

How awful they are to help the enemy like they do.

Les, hahahahha oh that sure puts a whole new meaning to an UGLY campaign.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 13, 2008 06:03 PM

Jack, great run down about him, thank you so much.

Yes, Maliki needs to get really tuff about this Sadr and take him out. Let the people know he wants no more of this fighting and killing from Sadr's army too.
