Sadr To Disarm If US Gives Pull Out Plan

From his biggest fans at Reuters:

Sadr to disarm if U.S. withdraws on timetable

By Wisam Mohammed Fri Aug 8

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Influential Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr would dissolve his Mehdi Army militia if the United States started withdrawing troops according to a set timetable, a spokesman said.

The comments come at a crucial point in talks between Baghdad and Washington over a new security pact that will provide a legal basis for U.S. troops to operate in Iraq when a United Nations mandate expires at the end of the year.

U.S. President George W. Bush has refused to set a firm timetable for withdrawing 144,000 American troops from Iraq, but spoke last month of a general “time horizon” for a pullout…

“We feel there’s a serious intention by the American forces for a withdrawal timetable at the very least,” Sadr’s spokesman Salah al-Ubaidi said before Friday prayers, when the cleric launched a new cultural wing of his movement.

“It should not be considered an end to the Mehdi army, but it’s a halfway step to dissolving the Mehdi Army. If the U.S. began to implement a withdrawal timetable we shall complete the path to dissolution,” Ubaidi said…

Sadr’s spokesman said while the “resistance” would not end until U.S. troops left Iraq, the cleric was ready to take positive steps if Washington moved in the right direction.

“If we find (this does not happen) and the U.S. forces change their stance over the timetable, we can change direction also,” he said. “This will not mean ending the ceasefire, it will depend on what’s going on on the ground.”

Isn’t it funny how Mr. Al-Sadr and Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama all want the same thing?

Why is that, do you think?

Anyway, isn’t this hilarious? How many times has our media (happily) fallen for Al-Sadr’s propaganda ploys?

He could give Lucy a few pointers on how to hold the football for Charlie Brown.

And of course this is the exact reason we should kill this cowardly fat clown and all of his lunatic followers and be done with it.
