    I think this is another of those 'turning points', as was the rebuilding of the Church and plea that Christians return back to Iraq.

    I wonder if Jafaari's name or Sadr's name or Sistani's name or Hakim's name are on that petition?

    I've looked a bit, still not finding what I saw last night, but CNN has this:

    to the well informed, this comes as no suprise.

    The iraqi shia have been involved in intra-shia power struggles for years. There's literally a civil war going on between rival shia groups in southern iraq.

    To a large extent between the Badr Corps and the Mahdi army. I'm sure the Badr Corps and their backers in the Malaki government would love to see Iranian influence and aid to their shia rivals in the Mahdi Army reduced or eliminated.
