US loses Shi'ite support, it's over in Iraq

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

You thought things were bad in Iraq before?

Iraq's ruling Shi'ite Islamist Alliance bloc demanded on Monday that U.S. forces return control of security to the Iraqi government after what it called "cold-blooded" killings by troops of unarmed people in a mosque.

"The Alliance calls for a rapid restoration of (control of) security matters to the Iraqi government," Jawad al-Maliki, a senior Alliance spokesman and ally of Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, told a news conference.
I saw a news report the other day that said if the Shi'ites get back in the war - currently, they're sitting it out after brokering a truce with the US - but if the Shi'ites join back in, it will double the size of the insurgent force fighting us.

Time for another news story about the great Iraq school system. No, nothing bad going on here. Move right along.
