[Media Source*] (From Free Iraqi) Ali doesn't seem to be happy with Muqtada Al Sadr. I am not either after this happened:
4000 men of Sadr's militia, Al Mehdi army marched through the streets of Basra in a demonstration of power. The militia men were dressed in black shirts and khaki trousers and had their ammunition on.
The American, British and Israeli flags were painted along the road where the demonstration took place for the militia to step on them. This happened despite that some of Sadr followers joined the elections and actually won some seats under the banner of the "Unified Coalition list". The Iraqi and multinational forces did not respond in any way to that demo.
Why this guy is in office is something I would like to know. Muqtada Al Sadr (for those of you who don't know) has past connections with the Ba'athist Party (same one Saddam was in) and from what I am getting from this Iraqi citizen is no friend of freedom and peace.
Now after the elections we can see more clearly what may have been not that clear at the times Sadr started both his revolts. He and his gang were not defying the "American occupation" as he claimed, but instead they were defying the vast majority of Iraqis who want freedom, democracy and peace.
They were trying, with obvious generous aid from the Mullahs in Iran to kill our dreams of a better future. They spreaded chaos, looted government offices, killed and tortured Iraqis the way Saddam used to, and they did all they can to limit our freedom, a freedom that God gave us and the Americans helped us get it back. And now he's stepping on the flags of our allies and liberators. Do I thank God we were not liberated by a revolution of people like these or not!
Sadly it appears that there are calls for reconciliation with the terrorists by some Iraqi's (according to Ali). This is troubling because the reason we went over there was to kill the terrorists who were oppressing their own people. If sanction is given to these terrorists, then that would send a signal that the Iraqi's are not strong enough to govern their own (and thus the presence of foreign troops there would be longer). I think Ali has a better solution:
We should fight these terrorists and fanatics that want to infiltrate the new system we want to build and ruin it from inside with their corrupt minds and with hands that are still stained with the blood of their victims. Let it take as long as it takes. It's not just a moral obligation but I see it as the only way to build a steady free democracy.
I agree. Selah!
