Militants Turn Over Keys to Shrine in Najaf

Finally the militia is out of the Hloy Shrine. Now we need to go in and get the militia out of Najaf and get AL Sadr. He needs to be either arrested or killed. He will not go away, because he is being funded by the Iranian Mullahs. They do not want a democratic Iraq. That would destabilizre their power and give hope to the people of Iran that hthey toocan havea democratic government. BUt now at least Al Sadr and his thugs are out of the Mosque and can not hide in it. Militants Turn Over Keys to Shrine in Najaf

NAJAF, Iraq – Thousands of pilgrims streamed into Imam Ali Shrine on Friday, and militants who had been holed up in the site left it, handing the keys to Shiite religious authorities after Iraq's top Shiite cleric brokered a peace deal to end three weeks of fighting in this holy city. Dozens of militants piled Kalashnikov rifles in front of the offices of their leader, radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. Thousands of al-Sadr's militiamen were still believed to be armed in the city, though most were staying off the streets. In one narrow alley, some militiamen could be seen pushing carts full of machine-guns and rocket launchers. Read the rest here.
