Muqtada al-Sadr flees U.S. surge Muqtada al-Sadr flees U.S. surge

RALPH PETERS in a New York Post article: MOOK'S SPOOKED points out that Muqtada al-Sadr appears to have fled to Iran for safety as the U.S. and the Iraqi government forces increase their pressure on his militia. Peters is a bit more colorful than I:
LOOKS like our team won this round of Spook-the- Mook. A best-in-show source in Baghdad confirms that Muqtada al-Sadr took off on a road-trip to Iran. And he wasn't just cruising in search of a Reuben sandwich.

The game ain't over until the fat mullah's scared. No matter how he tries to explain it away, Muqtada's public cowardice is going to hurt him - after he encouraged his followers to martyr themselves. There already had been rumors of mutinies in the Mahdi Army that threatened Mookie himself.

One more reason to run.
