Mookie Surrenders!!

Well,that was quick.

In response to the devastating offensive by the Iraqi government into the heart of his strongholds, Moqtada al-Sadr has ordered what's left of the Mahdi Army to cease fighting the Iraqi troops and to lay down their arms forthwith.

The al-BBC story I linked to above references `240 dead'(actually over 300) without mentioning that almost all of the deceased were Mookie's fighters.

The nerve of that Moqtada al-Sadr!

Here the dinosaur media were all geared up to report endlessly ad naseum on the `quagmire' and the `cycle of violence' and Mookie pulls the plug on them.

Doesn't he have any respect for working, agenda driven journos with a 24 hour news cycle to fill?

Jokes aside, this is a major victory for the Iraqi people and the Maliki government, and I fully expect Mookie to slither off to Iran any day now.
