Occupations Seeks to Extinguish Popular Government in Iraq

Buried within the stories of protests in Iraq is news that "officials of Moqtada al Sadr" were gunned down en route to Baghdad. I had indicated in the previous DOGSPOTs last year that even during the rule of Saddam Hussein, a de-facto administration, led by the al Sadr family, existed in Iraq, with offices in various regions of the country. The US has continued the policy of extermination launched by Saddam Hussein against the family of Moqtada al-Sadr in 1999, and that is a major reason for the continued unpopularity of the occupation.
