Or, how to apply "miracle grow" to Terrorists
"Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed group in Lebanon that warred with Israel this summer, has been training Moqtada al-Sadr's Shiite militia both inside Iraq and in Lebanon, senior White House and intelligence officials confirm.
Somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 Shiite fighters under the anti-American cleric al-Sadr had been trained in Lebanon by Hezbollah, a group also backed by Syria, two unnamed officials told FOX News."
... obviously, this begs the question; why is it, when our fabulous boys in desert tan go after creeps like this, King George gets wet feet? Is it because Moqtada is a beloved religious leader who's demise would ignite the Shiite world into extreme violence? No, that can't be it - the violence is already extreme. In fact, it's part and parcel to their religious beliefs! Is it because our guys aren't tough enough to "track 'em down"? ...Don't be ridiculous!
... ahhh! It may be that King George sees "Mookie" as the next strong leader in Iraq and we're actually enabling his power grab!
... failure to act means playing al-Sadr directly into Iran's hand. The FAILED BUSH FOREIGN POLICY CONTINUES!
