Taking Risks

Sometimes you have to take risks. In Iraq, al-Sadr’s militia needs to be taken out if the sectarian violence around Baghdad is to stop. There is great risk to this since such an overt act may embolden those on the sidelines to choose Sadr rather than the new government.

However, homicides in Baghdad are down an estimated 46% from July since the latest security maneuvers on August 7. It’s a good sign, but more needs to be done. I personally believe that the Mahdi Army and al-Sadr’s militias are being funded by Iran. Any chance to foil Iran is a gamble worth taking.
