Muqtada Al Sadr Reactivates Mahdi Army, After Trump’s Strikes on Iraqi Forces

'Great job' Donald!

Influential Shi’ite cleric and leader of the top political bloc in Iraq Moqtada al-Sadr has announced Friday that he is reactivating his paramilitary group, the Mahdi Army, issuing a statement on Twitter telling them to “be ready.”

The Mahdi Army was a major faction from the US occupation of Iraq in 2003 until 2007, when they made a deal with the Iraqi government to disband. Sadr has at times suggested he would reform the militia to ensure the US complied with pullout dates.

Sadr has long opposed the Iraqi government’s reliance on both Iran and the US, and the reconstitution of the Mahdi Army is a response to recent US attacks against other Shi’ite militias.

The Mahdi Army previously existed before the establishment of the government-run PMU force, and it is unclear if it will consider itself aligned with them, or will simply operate independently, as it used to.

      there is no “innocent American blood”, if one pays taxes they support the machine

        The Lord said, “render unto Cesar the things that are Cesar’s. But unto God the things that are God’s. Not everyone in America that pays taxes bows down to the American war machine. I pray you understand.

          You may not bow down but one thing is obvious “ Your silence!”
