Thousands of supporters of the radical Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr are converging on the holy city of Najaf to hold mass demonstrations.Is this the beginning of the end of American occupation in Iraq? The Saudis want us out. The Iraqis want us out. WE want us out! And now our troops are not just in the middle of a civil war, but are in the crosshairs of both sides.
Mr Sadr has called for a million-strong protest to coincide with the fourth anniversary of Saddam Hussein's fall.
The protesters will demand the withdrawal of coalition troops.
Was there ever a better time to impeach this whole administration and get our men and women out of this un-winnable situation? This myth that leaving now would lead the insurgents back here is just that, a myth. We are just as likely to have a terrorist attack on U.S. soil whether we're there or not, and possibly more so if we stay. All we're doing is stirring up hornets and feeding fuel to the jihadist's cause by occupying a Middle Eastern country and doing nothing to make things better for the people who live there.
I'm sick of the NeoCons (and they are cons!) spreading their poison over the globe with the help of the press and the blessing of the fundamentalists. They don't deserve our respect nor our tolerance. They should be tried for their crimes and punished to the full extent of the laws for their crimes against humanity and democracy. They are not nice.
