"There will be no American intervention in this regard. The only American intervention would be aerial protection and also securing some of the roads that lead to the compound. As for entering the compound, it will be 100 percent Iraqis," Shaalan said.
I hope they pull this off with complete success and flying colors. I would add that success would mean putting a bullet in that al-Sadr person. Martyr him, what ever, he needs to be gone! It seems to me that if he is gone that Iraq can then make even more steps forward! I am glad to see that Americans will only be observing this action. I wish the men all the luck in the world and good hunting!
