Shiite Mahdi Army Reopens Second Iraqi Resistance Front

Friday, April 08, 2005

Shiite Mahdi Army didn't hear of the GREAT success of the Iraqi elections. They didn't see those purple/blue fingers.

"Over their heads flew the Iraqi flag, banners of Shiite Muslim saints and a portrait of their leader, Moqtada Sadr - symbols of their militia, the Mahdi Army, twice subdued by the U.S. military last year but now openly displaying its strength in parts of the south."
" It was also long enough for the militiamen to deliver the message that has distinguished their organization from Iraq's other Shiite groups - implacable hostility toward the U.S. occupation. They delivered it far beyond the purview of the U.S. military, in one of the many towns and cities in southern Iraq where the Mahdi Army has emerged as kingmaker, and where the lines between authority and lawlessness are still ambiguous."

""There is no place in the land of Mahdi except for the people of Mahdi," he shouted. "There is no place for you on this ground. Our people exist to force you out by means that are peaceful and then by means that are military."

When will we hear them and pull out?
