Morning Star

Shorter version: Sadrists understand the "brutal language of the Iraqi street", use children and young men, have murderous looks in their eyes, are conduits of religious resentment and sectarian passions, will be "unleashed" if America leaves, are responsible for the drilled, tortured bodies appearing in Iraqi ditches and trash cans, summon up baying "mobs" at will, comprise "Iraq's new Taliban" (because a former Bremer aid says so), have been tragically allowed to get so powerful because of insufficient troop numbers etc etc.
