No Good Will Come of This

Three strikes and you're out still in the Iraq mayhem game.

That three-time insurrectionist and all-around breathing piece of human garbage, Moqtada al Sadr, is back in the violence business:

Iraq's powerful Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has put his militia on alert to battle Islamic State militants for the city of Samarra, home to a Shi'ite mosque whose destruction eight years ago plunged the country into sectarian war.

Sadr's office said the announcement was a response to the "exceptional conditions and imminent danger to the sacred city of Samarra from the legions of terrorists," a reference to the Sunni Muslim Islamic State fighters who surround Samarra.

First ISIL, then any random Sunni Arab, and then Shias who oppose him are on Sadr's list. No good can come of allowing Sadr to openly arm up and pose as a defender of Iraq's Shias.
