Government Aims for Muqtada's Balls


It seems that the guys really mean it this time around, they're really intent on nailing Shibil al-Hawza by his firebreathing firebrand nostrils, not only are they trying to forming Shahwa (Shi'i-Sahwa) councils inside the city that carries his father's name, but they're pulling all the guns : first a National Security Council that bans all militas [which really means just the Mahdi Army because Badr is the government now] and they're also wiping the dirt off the case of Muqtada's First Blood: Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei.

Two days ago, I watched an al-Khoei family member on al-Arabiya, he said that Muwaffaq al-Rubiaye came to talk to him about reopening the case, he seemed a little irritated at all involved, first he said that al-Khoei's case was never closed in the first place so that is shall be reopened, which directly contradicts what Rasim al-Marwani, a Sadrist cultural advisor, who repeatedly said that al-Khoei family themselves had "dropped the case which was setted in good will." and second he said that too many people have used al-Khoei's murder as political leverage, which is of course a direct jab at Ibrahim al-Jaffari's stint as PM in 2005 during which he ignored the murder due to the backing of the Sadrists which directly gave him the PM position, but he could have also been referring to this recent request by al-Rubaiye, especially as he didn't really seem to be supportive of it and seemed rather annoyed at all of them.

Another al-Khoei family member, Hayder al-Khoei, writes in his blog Eye Raki about this recent development, expecting an ominous showdown (of course, being a member of al-Khoei family it's understandable for Mr. Eye Raki not to be really objective about anything involving the man who killed his father, that is if he is indeed Hayder the son of Sayyid Majid, but re-reading Eye Raki's blog with this fact in mind the guy seems to be incredibly reasonable and objective about Iraq in general, and that is damn impressive considering his family is an extremely respected religious family which is expected to be subjective, to say the least, he is much better than other Iraqi Shi'i (and Sunni) blogs.)

Everybody in the government, including the Sunnis, and most recently, Iran, have supported the government against Muqtada, who has came back to Najaf ; recent news items talk about Basra breathing a little air after months of religious monkeybrains.

So why is this happening all of a sudden, I don't want to get my hopes up as the Badrists/Iraqi Government/and even the Amreekan have played forbidden detente football with Muqtada for years now, so what has suddenly prompted this sudden rush to crush him? (Amreekans still seem reluctant about it.)

Nobody knows for sure, maybe they were encouraged by Muqtada's declaration to disappear for a while and focus on his college education, but the obvious reason is the municipal council elections, which sits as a pragmatic selfish explanation that sits in line with what has been happening in Iraq until this point, however, even if that is indeed true, I do wish that the Sadrists are destroyed in the long run and are not as powerful as everyone expected them to be, first, having one militia around is better than two, and second, the Badrists, as evil as they are, seem to be more negotiable than Qrazy Qaddo and his boneheaded supernatural take of the world, the only people who expressed sympathy were either opportunists who calculated so as to slide with the more populist Sadrists to advance their own careers such as Ibrahim "Lazga" Jaffari and Ahmed "Slimesnake" Chalabi, or Ba'athis who really have no love for them but use them to prove that their resistance is pan-Iraqi, the Sadrists have completely destroyed their own nationalistic credentials in their post-2006 killing spree, before which only Badr, with its covert sneaky assassinations were being pointed at as the extremist Shi'i.

One could certainly look with sympathetic eye towards the poor downtrodden base of Muqtada al-Sadr, I remember in the old days when we used to make fun of them like hell, not because they were Shi'i but mostly because they were dirty and backward, something even the middle-class Shi'is used to do, calling them mi'dan and shroog. it's a classic urban vs tribal situation in a way.

Ismail al-Lami aka "Shi'i Zarqawi" Abu Deraa is back in town, supposedly he returned to Basra but this al-Arabiya article says his pictures are distributed around police checkpoints in Kerbala, we finally have a good picture of him, the person who took this picture said, and I quote: "
lol my father was some weeks ago in iran. he meeted Abu dere3 there in qom (iran)
he was without bodyguards walking in a place where just iraqi live there, he is a friend of my uncle who also lives there, here are some pics of abu dere3 from some weeks ago with my father and uncle", Abu Deraa reminds me of a cross between a big teddy bear and a large rodent:

My God- you're right! I hope they grab that guy. You've read Eye Raki's post on him I take it? what a freak (Abu Deraa).

Little Penguin said...

All those bastards (ALL of them) are going to get one hell of a divine slap across the face very very soon inshallah.

Kid, I ask you as a friend, not as a fellow blogger.. do you think if we, as Iraqis, decided to pull the plug on blind support of A, B, C or D - that it will mean the end of this whole militia, Mehdi Army, inter-sect battles?

Why should we allow a handful of people orchestrate the daily lives of 27 million Iraqis? who on earth do they think they are?

I would use more derogatory language but they're so not worth it.

but yea.. fuck aby drei and his boss(es).

Like a loyal Persian Hakimist or Sistanist, Eye Raki al-Khoei sits in London and cheers for the destruction of his country under the guise of democracy, ending dictatorship, and now getting rid of the Sadrists (who he describes as being all murderers). The Persian Hakimists of course are terrified whenever they see an ARAB Shi'ite cleric who has appeal to the Iraqi ARAB masses and who oppose the American-Persian Shiastan vision. Hey Abu Karrar how come you haven't joined your fellows in the Iranian Green Zone government yet? Having too much fun in London? I heard that you have a British Cockney accent and that you're indistinguishable from other Brits. You're just another Mojo (maybe not as dumb though) who never lived in Iraq long enough to understand the country or to appreciate the sanctity of Iraqi blood.

okay anonymous, I don't try to get involved in anything not directly related to me but I must say that EyeRaki's blog is nothing like Iraqi Mojo, you can read his blog from the beginning to see that, maybe it's just me but he seems to have a better understanding of being an "Iraqi" than many people I've seen inside Iraq do, Little Penguin is also a good chap who seems very amiable.

anonymous,

Eye Raki is in Iraq right now you idiot.

CMAR II said...

[Abbas] so what has suddenly prompted this sudden rush to crush him? (Amreekans still seem reluctant about it.)

This is a tough question?
Answer: Al-Qaeda is on the ropes and the Ba'athists have become an after-thought since the Sunni insurgency came in from the cold.

Finally, the government has enough consolidated resources to take on the Sadrists. The "Amreekans" are still fighting AQI (on behalf of the Iraqis) and the remaining Sunni insurgents. Their resources are not consolidated. For the last five years, the US forces have had carry every fight every fight against the enemies of Iraq on their backs. Naturally, they assumed this would be the same.

I am so happy to note that it is not the same this time. But since the US military has launched two major battles against Sadr's goons already, it is pretty crazy to imply the "Amreekans" have been codling him.

On the other hand, if the US had AT ALL supported this move, many so-called patriotic Iraqis would openly support the Sadrists and others would privately cheer whenever the US forces took a punch.

[anon] who never lived in Iraq long enough to understand the country or to appreciate the sanctity of Iraqi blood.

Looks to me like many Iraqis who have been in Iraq a long time find Iraqi blood quite precious indeed...they all want to draw a little bit of it. The Sadrists were the first after Saddam's fall to value it so much.

That's why. Mookie is a home grown problem, so it requires a home grown solution.

Also, someone really should photoshop some Mickey Mouse ears on Abu, it would complete the image...

OH... And I'm glad to see that trolls still have no fuckin' life whatsoever... Ah hah ha haa!

Eye Raki said...

I do not support Sistani in all his views, but the ground he walks on is worth more than Iranian yes-man Moqtada and his ba3thi yes-man father put together.

I visited Sistani around a month ago (yes I am in Iraq now and pray to god the army storms Najaf right this second to cleanse it from those bastards) and asked him how he was...he replied "My sistuation is like Iraq"...I said "Sayyid regardless of the situation in Iraq...how are you?". Sistani replied "I cant seperate my health and Iraq's health". Those words make him more 'Iraqi' than the fool Moqtada who orders his men to use the shrine as a military base and runs of to Iran like a little baby when he can't stand the heat.

I was in Najaf in April 2004 and still cheered for the Iraqi army when they came rolling in to crush the Persian funded Persian directed Mehdi Army.

As for the "cockney" accent, im from the north-west you idiot. What you heard is bullshit.

Anand said...

You know, I generally like people. Even Muqtada, sort of, some of the time.

But Abu Deraa is a human canibal who got out of Satan's den.

He has done more harm to the world's 150 million Shia than anything else.

You know what I think, if we ever catch this Abu Deraa, we should hand him over to Al Qaeda (with a secret camera and listening device implanted in this body that broadcasts back live feed.)

Later we can roll back the tape and watch. And re-watch. And re-watch.

Maybe we can marry him to Anne Coulter and drop him on a desert island with no way to escape.

Or we can make him a punching bag for Layla Anwar, Riverbend and Arab Advocate. Ha Ha.

What do you think Abbas?

Abbas, you are a cool kid, who is no longer a kid. ;-)

Because I like you so much, how about this to cheer you up.

I am sure you saw that the Iraqi Army fought pretty well in Basrah. They have over run most of the city. Soon it will be good enough to take out KSA, Egypt, Jordan and Syria . . . all at the same time. :-)

so eye raki, i am a little confused. do you think hakim is less connected w/iran? the badr brigades? do you consider them (and the iraqi army) less influenced by iran? my question doesn't seek to deny a sadr/iran influence. but rumor has it one cannot dismiss hakim's associations either can one?

what advantage does iran have, if in fact they do influence both sadr/hakim, to have their 2 allies in iraq fighting? if they wanted to weaken the US influence in iraq wouldn't they empower these 2 groups to unify? certainly it would seem that their strongest influence would be to support those who hold places of power.

do you tink hakim is closer to the US, than iran?

Abu Deraa seems to be utter human scum. He doesn't look that menacing but clearly looks can be deceiving.

If Abu Deraa is ever caught he deserves the harshest punishment. I think he should be captured alive and tied down. We would then print all Anands posts on the IA and have the person who does the voice of Apu in the Simpsons read it onto tape. We would then rig a tape recorder so we could play Anands rantings to Deraa over and over and over, for ever. What could be crueller? Nothing!

Bruno said...

Annie's right.

It's pointless to cry about Sadrist connections to Iran when Badr, Hakim et al are the bigger Iran supporters that in any case want to fragment the country.

Eye Raki said...

It is in Iran's interest to keep Iraq a mess. If that means supporting two rival militias, so be it.

There is no doubt Hakim and his SIIC is influenced by Iran, they wouldn't have existed in the first place if it wasn't for Iran. The funny thing is when people say Hakim is scared because Sadr claims to be an Arab Nationalist. He takes his orders and paychecks from Tehran. How the hell can he be an Arab Nationalist if he needs to ask for permission to use the toilet from a Persian?

"Later we can roll back the tape and watch. And re-watch. And re-watch."_____If you really want that, you are simply another psychopath. Don't you see that watching others in pain is just what he likes to do? In a rich country, people like that would (once caught and tried) be kept in a secure mental hospital. In Iraq, IMO the only moral way to deal with him is a quick, painless execution. If you torture a torturer, you are just lowering yourself to the same level of evil.

Don Cox said...

"And what is so wrong with Iran"____It was a theocratic dictatorship and is now turning into a military dictatorship, like Burma. The last thing the Iranian regime wants is a stable, open democracy next door.

Anand said...

You are right of course Don Cox. Certain things shouldn't even be said in jest.

Abu Deraa has been behind terrible atrocities against Sunni Arabs for the pure crime of being Sunni Arabs.

Abbas, do you think that Khamenei is behind Abu Deraa? If evidence for this can be indisputably proved in public, I think the Iranian people would overthrow Khamenei and take their country back.

annie said...

actually i have never heard anyone say hakim is scared of sadr because he is an arab nationalist. howerever, i think it would be obvious he would feel politically threatened because sadr has a mass of followers therefore in a process of democratic elections sadr is a threat.

here is what i think the 'funny thing is'. when everybody knows, hakin is undoubtably connected w/iran why then do you, the msm, the pentagon, rice, all the propagandists (i am not claiming you are this is simply a quality you have in common w/them) continually make a big deal about a sadr/iran connection? how is this relevant? why not always say 'the iranian supported hakim'. or why not mention iran at all? is iran not relevant when they are supporting hakim, but they are when/if they support sadr? and if they did support him why the ;atest rumors he was 'kick out of iran' and sent back to najaf?

How the hell can he be an Arab Nationalist if he needs to ask for permission to use the toilet from a Persian?

How the hell can hakim be an ally of the US in iraq if he asks for permission to use the toilet from a Persian?

unless iran and the US are on the same team and want the same thing in iraq. why does the US ratchet up the iranian hate speech if iran and the US are backing the same persian asslicker in iraq?

and why would that same ass licker be 'scared' of sadr, especially since the iran and the US BOTH have his back?

Better informed observers already know that the Iranian regime is happy to have a client, friendly Shi'ite theocratic (in practice) state next door. And they already got that. I don't think it would bother Iran that it is an "open democracy" since the numbers (of the Shia population in Iraq) would always ensure that only friends of Iran (SIIC, Da'wa) remain in power. Incidentally, this is what the US wants as well, which is why they rushed to crush the Sadrists before the provincial elections.

I agree with, and endorse this comment:

[anonymous] "Better informed observers already know that the Iranian regime is happy to have a client, friendly Shi'ite theocratic (in practice) state next door. And they already got that. I don't think it would bother Iran that it is an "open democracy""

Don Cox clearly resonates with the Neocon idea that democracies and eeeeevil dictatorships are like matter and antimatter and that *poof*, if a dictatorship has a democracy next door, it will be its downfall. In other words, if Hakim and SCIRI take over in Iraq, Iran is doomed.

( :lol: )

That is NOT the case, however.
