Paths of Glory
In a wave of reprisal killings, Shiite militiamen attacked Sunni mosques in Baghdad and other parts of Iraq on Friday, defying a government curfew and propelling the country further toward full-blown civil war. The exacting of revenge for the deaths of more than 200 Shiites on Thursday came as powerful politicians linked to radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr threatened to pull out of Iraq's coalition government if Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki attends a scheduled meeting with President Bush next week in Amman, Jordan. A boycott by loyalists of Sadr, on whom Maliki relies for political support, could upend Iraq's fragile unity government.
All hail the new leader of Iraq - Muktada Al Sadr. Well done Bush. Well done Dick. Well done Rummy. Well done Condi. Wolfowitz, Hadley, Bolton, Feith, McCain - Lieberman.
The glory is yours.
