al-Sadr acolytes demand better conditions

al sadr

The followers of Iranian-backed Iraqi cleric Mookie al Sadr are taking the opportunity of the ninth anniversary of the US invasion of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq to demand better conditions from their government. Judging by the picture above, I’m guessing a dental plan is at the top of the list. (Associated Press link)

Al-Nasiri credited the Sadrists with liberating Iraq from the troops he described as occupiers.

“We fought for Iraq and liberated it from the American occupation,” al-Nasiri told thousands of al-Sadr’s followers who turned out for a rally in the southern province of Basra, located about 340 miles (550 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad.

“The government must meet our demands to live a better life,” al-Nasiri added.

Yeah, they “liberated” Iraq from the American occupiers, like we needed another pile of sand. I guess we know which version history will remember, though. Ingrates. Actually, I just wrote the post because I just wanted to write the dental plan thing in the first paragraph. Our biggest failure of the Iraq was leaving there while al Sadr was still alive. Dung beetles should be rolling what’s left of him across the desert.

Speaking of the ninth anniversary of the Iraq War, where is IVAW and ANSWER? Don’t they march on the Pentagon every year on this date? I was at the first one in 2007 at the birth of GOE.

    It should have read, “We fought while I hid in Iran.”

    This is Sadr playing to the fools. Sadr controls the largest block of the Iraqi parliament. He is the head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq. He controls as much of the government as the Dawa organization. And he is complaining about the government. This is like Harry Reid complaining about conditions in the senate. This is like John Boehner complaining about the House of Representatives. If Sadr thinks the Iraqi government should do something different he has the power to make that happen. He doesn’t want to change anything, he just want to goad the masses.

    And from what I remember of my 2003-2004 tour, he has excellent dental work compared to the rest of them.

  3. This fucking butter toothed turd is responsible for more U.S soldiers being killed than Zarquawi or Haqqani combined. He used his Iranian connections to funnel military grade, factory produced EFPs straight into Baghdad. East Baghdad/Sadr City/Pluto/Predators area was a scary place to be in 06-07 due to this prick. If there is anyone on earth that needs to be whacked this bozo is at the top of the list. Cowardly motherfucker

    With Sadr still alive, anybody want to take bets on Round Three? Ten years, or less? I give it five, before we have to go back over there and drag his sorry … backside…out of a hidey-hole.

    Pinto I just don’t want to send my son there to finish something that we didn’t get to finish.

    When (not if) we go back, it will be to get Sadr and Maliki. They are both the same, especially regarding their backgrounds.

  7. PintoNag says:

    The names and faces will change, but the game won’t. Not until the belief system changes, and that could — and probably will — take awhile.

    Nutbags will never show his face anybody’s AO because he’ll be scared shitless his skull might be fractured by a Barrett .50? So what really yanks my chain is the US military and our “brave” politicians,(and not our boots on the ground soldiers) have allowed this goat molesting, mother fucker to remain alive.

  9. Just Plain Jason says:

    Remember the kill on sight order for his madhi army? You were allowed to fire on the yellow bandanna on sight. Unfortunately I was a late for that. It was about the time he hurt his arm and bounced his pudgy butt back across the border to Iran. This is one turd that should have been flushed.

    …damn I am in a bad mood today. I haven’t been sleeping too well and I spent last night arguing with a bunch of asshats at an NPR site.
