Trading Threats

While the gasbags spit all over the teevee cameras about the biggest primary evah, the Iraqi's seem to be trading threats. Remember al Sadr threatened to unleash the motha of all battles if Maliki didn't leave him alone? Now Maliki has responded:

The Iraqi army command in Basra is giving top leaders of the Mahdi Army in the city 24 hours to surrender.

The order comes from Gen. Mohan al-Freiji, who told reporters Tuesday that Basra city and the surrounding province are back under government control.
If all this is something other than just cock-posturing, get ready for a resumption of insurgent attacks and battles where U.S. soldiers get drawn into the fight Maliki's boys get a chance to desert fight for the fathealand.
