Darth Sadr still undefeated

Al-Sadr orders fighters to stop attacks

Can he be stopped?

Looking around and reading comments, it’s apparently a Major Victory for Sadr.

Of course it’s a big win for Sadr. Just look at history:

  • When he went on the offensive he won.
  • When he agreed to a cease-fire he won.
  • When he went on the offensive again he won.
  • When he agreed to another cease-fire he won.
  • When he went on the offensive yet again he won.
  • When he agreed to another cease-fire he won.
  • When he joined the political process he won.
  • When he pulled out of the political process he won.
  • When he went on several more offensives and shortly later agree to more cease-fires, each time he won.
  • When he rejoined the political process he won.
  • When he pulled out of the political process again he won.
  • When he went to Iran he won.
  • When he came back to Iraq he won.
  • When he agreed to a long-term truce he won.
  • When the truce was about to expire he won.
  • When he renewed the truce he won.
  • When he went on the offensive again, he won.
  • When he once again called for a cease-fire he won.

I might have some of the above items out of order, but I’m sure that he won them all.

At least that’s what I keep hearing.

At this rate, he should rule all of Iraq within weeks, the Middle East by the end of May, the planet by the time Obama is sworn in as president in January, and the rest of the solar system by 2011, 2012 at the latest.

  1. Sadly the term cease-fire is not the same in our culture as it is in Islamic countries. I believe (never read this myself from the religion’s book, so feel free to enlighten me to exact text) but in Islam the only time one should retreat or call a ceasefire is to be able to strike a greater blow to the enemy. It isn’t to do with trying to generate peace in the region… rather to strike another blow at a later stage when one is rearmed and repaired etc. In the western world, the cease-fire term came about during gentlemanly warfare… that’s not the case anymore and maybe we should just stop using the term, as it confuses the uneducated in this matter, as it looks like Al Sadr is trying to make peace.

  2. Not sure, though I don’t think our intelligence agencies treated him for dysentry and malaria.
