RADICAL Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr has been injured during the US assault on the city of Najaf in Iraq.

Apparently he's in the mosque. The only way to finish him off is actually walking in there and killing him.



This is a ING who was a POW then executed bu al-Sadr's men today. We know have him and his hooligans surrounded in the mosque. A British reporter has been kidnapped this morning, and will die in the next day if we dont pull out. This, IMHO, will be the defining moment of Islam, this siege will determine where the Shiite's go from here.

The British Journalist has been freed, Al Sadr, spoke with the thugs who were holding him and got him released. Now the Iraqi government and him are talking, Al Sadr wants all his fighters released, so we can have Najaf Pt. Infinity again.

Plus the Interior Minister is denying Al Sadr was wounded at all.

I agree - we need to get in there and get them, but only the Iraqis can do that, anyone else and they'll be in an uproar. We need a few brave Iraqis to get in there and get Al Idiot out. Supposedly the place is booby trapped.

Exactly. Grant it, we're trying for peace and everything but as soon as all these "crackers" are gone, forever, we might have a real chance at it. No one is going to get any where while we still have Al Qaeda and religious zealots running about.

There are differents forms of evil and Al Sadr is just one of them.

Plus all these holy shrines, I believe are no longer considered to be holy once they step in and start firing RPGs at our brave men and women, plus the Iraqis who are there. To me, that just reeks of being a coward, if you want to "fight" you come out and fight like a "civilized" person, face to face, not running back to your shrine after shooting.

Could bring in religious tones such as if we don't get 'em, Allah sure will, at least I hope so.
