How to get the US Troops out of Iraq

Scott Ott at Scrappleface reports on Moqtada Al-Sadr’s new plan to drive American troops out of Iraq:

In addition to a ceasefire against Iraqi troops, the Islamic cleric’s fatwa seeks to demoralize American forces by demanding that Shiites …

– Avoid shooting anyone for any reason
– Register to vote and respect the Iraqi constitution and governing authorities
– Locate and disable all previously-deployed roadside bombs
– Re-shelve all explosive vests and large caliber automatic weapons in their original locations at local mosques
– Release any living hostages into the custody of the United Nations
– Patrol communities to pick up garbage, repair buildings and roads, and restore utility services
– Stop ranting like maniacs and go back to work
– Take a moment today to thank a U.S. soldier, Marine or airman for your freedom

“We will brutally cut off Bush’s rationale for staying in Iraq,” said Mr. al-Sadr. “Our day of triumph is at hand. The Great Satan will march back home in tickertape parades of shame. Allah be praised.”
