i got my ski mask on, this shit's been too long:
Speaking of Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, he was briefly taken hostage today. The Sadrists appear to be getting ready to bring the Mahdi Army out of retirement.
On Friday, a spokesman for Sadr warned that the cleric might not extend a six-month cease-fire by his Mahdi Army militia, which U.S. officials say has contributed to the reduction in violence in Iraq. In a statement, Salah al Obeidi charged that rival Shiite militias have infiltrated Iraq's security forces and that some senior security officials remain in their jobs although they've been charged with human rights offenses.

"This will force us to reconsider the decision to extend the cease-fire despite repeated public statements in the past that we will," Obeidi said.

Didn't anyone tell Sadr that we already won the war?
