( Some observations on the media.Collapse )
Also, if you have seen the mobile phone camera footage of Saddam Hussein's execution, pay close attention and note the chant: "Muqtada, Muqtada, Muqtada". What? Just remember this name: Muqtada al-Sadr. Now, I'm not going to go as far as some I've heard and already jump to the conclusion of "from one dictator to another", but Muqtada al-Sadr has strong influence over a growing portion of the Iraqi Shi'ite populace and I can't say I feel at ease.
