Airstrikes In Baghdad: Are American Armed Forces Set To Destroy The Mahdi Army?


Omar at Iraq the Model has a report that I haven't seen in the US press. I wonder if this ties to the fatwa signed down in Mecca on Friday. I thought that one interpretation of the fatwa could be that it was a hunting license for Sadrists. Omar seems to be hinting at that interpretation through his locating the air strikes as occurring in Sadr city.

This story, from Canoe News out of Canada, only complicates the story. One of the targets was, apparently, a TV network with ties to al-Maliki himself.

Ah, the Byzantine world of Islamic politics.
