Dr. Cole provides his take on Muqtada al-Sadr's hootenanny he threw yesterday with a few hundred thousand of his close personal frineds. As I've been saying for years, this dude holds an enormous sway over a lot of Shiites in Iraq and Iran.
Muqtada could make whatever exit strategy the US is planning from Iraq a very different and very ugly situation with a quick directive to his personal Army.
Obama should heed my words and get the fuck outta there tout suite. al-Sadr is not a person to be toyed with, and seriously, if someone else's Army invaded your neighborhood and pushed your entire region around for nearly 10 years, wouldn't you take up arms and want to kill every last one of them?
Yes, you would.
