The AP reports that Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has ordered his militiamen to stop attacking Iraqis and to increase their efforts to get rid of American soldiers. In Najaf thousands of Iraqis protested on the fourth anniversary of the US invasion of Baghdad.
US government officials keep saying they are waiting for the Iraqis to stand up and take care of their own country. Will they finally do so by turning on the US?
This is why a US surge is such a BAD idea...
