Yahoo! News - Iraqi Cleric Signals End to Shi'ite Revolt

Moqtada al Sadr has told his Mehdi Army to "go home". Nice gesture if he means it, but even if he does, will they listen to him? If they really are "ragtag fighters, mostly from the slums of Baghdad and impoverished southern villages", they may have nothing to go home too, or even a home. Sadr seems genuine enough now that he thinks he may have won himself some political clout in a future government. But I read a good quote (that will be used in the assignment I should be writing-yes, this is the height of procrastination)...

ahhhhh, typical. I can't find it. bodes well for my assignment. Anyway, the quote was something along the lines of, 'in ensuring future democratic society, it does not help to hold up obviously undemocratic leaders in the present because they can hold the status quo for the time being.' or some such. Now I must sleep, tomorrow is a big day.
