Gee, wonder why?
he is a major player with an enormous amount of clout with the shiite population.
If your vision of "victory" is to be fulfilled, we will need to get him and Sistani totally onboard with our plan.
He should be taken out. Sistani basically is on board.
take Sadr out and watch the reaction.... and I disagree about Sistani
based upon what?
Hard to argue an Iraqi has less right to decide the future of his nation than an army of foreigners...
his ties with Iran....
my belief that the term "moderate shi'ite ayatollah" is a non sequitur.
Ah but that doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't want stability for his country.
of course he wants stability for Iraq: he wants a stable shiite dominated theocratic state.
how does THAT fit in with your vision of victory?
Actually, they are the majority. The Sunnis have dominated the scene for too long. How they work it out, will have to be an Iraqi settled score.
