Sadr Flees Iraq

Stunning news, I think: Moqtada al Sadr has bolted to Iran, apparently because he fears for his safety as more American troops pour into Baghdad. Sadr reportedly took the top command of his “Mahdi army” with him to Tehran.
I would think this will make it more difficult to sell the footsoldiers who stayed behind on the desirability of martyrdom.
Damn! Maybe this surge thing will work after all.
