Iraq’s Sadr backs embattled Assad

Murdoc is shocked, SHOCKED, to see this:

Iraq’s radical anti-US Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has expressed support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

Apparently the Mook is cool with what Assad’s up to in Syria these days because he continues to defy America and Israel. You’ve got to at least give him points for consistency.


  1. It’s simpler than that. The Alawite sect of Islam that runs Syria (and encompasses the Assad clan) is generally seen to be part of Shia Islam just like Mookie.
