    I don't really believe him though, he was already supposedly holding back his troops from attacking US Troops until the troop deadline, how he is telling them to stop, so he is basically admitting they were attacking US Troops the whole time.:evil:

    So, wait.... a good idea is for them to stop attacking us, so we withdraw... and they can destroy Iraq with a civil war? That's good? In what way... exactly? Another terrorist supporting state emerges, hell bent on providing a training ground for the next wave of AQ terrorists to plan and train for the next 9/11.... that's a good thing?

    My opinion... we need more rational thought and less emotion-based 'logic'.

    He's well respected in Iraq. He's not a "terrorist" in that his call has been always for expelling troops foreign to his nation. This is a good step for Iraq.

    This guy recently returned to Iraq this year, he has been living in Iran for the past 3-4 years and his militia is armed and trained by the Iranians, this guy wants US Troops to leave so he can take over and alot of the Kurds and Sunnis in Iraq dislike him. With his track record I don't trust him either.

    I think this just proves that Muqtada has a lot less control over his followers than we in the West like to believe.

    I have to agree with you there, I think we pretty much have done all we can.
