.cnI redruM has fun mocking the brave Shiite militia commander’s prudential border-crossing in the face of the imminent American offensive.
What a guy! What a leader of men. Muqtada Al Sadr has pointed tens of thousands of brave Islamic warriors down the road to paradise. He’s hooked them up with the 72 virgins. Presumably, he even provided them each a heart-shape bed.
But when the going got tough, and the tough got surging, Muqtada wasn’t musically inclined towards Teddy Pendergrass and Barry White. No 72 virgins for the Mighty Mook.
He left town so fast that an enterprising squad of MI types followed a residual trail of tire rubber all way to the Iranian border. Yep, he went straight to the Iranian border. That country bordering Iraq, whose president swears up and down isn’t helping Iraqi insurgents.
No wonder Saddam Hussein derisively snorted “Muqtada al Sadr?” in response to the crowd’s chanting that name just before the trapdoor dropped.
