Iraq: Sadr Ministers Out

Iraqi blogger Omar is asking: now what after all the Sadr Ministers have withdrawn from the Iraqi government? “In a sudden move, Shiite Muslim cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has pulled his ministers out of the Iraqi cabinet. Many people are asking me why. It’s a good question, and I’ve being thinking about the reasons and implications. They aren’t very easy to determine because of the jumpy, and often illogical, way that this political faction thinks and behaves,” he explains.
