You can’t serve two masters
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, April 15, 2008

The one thing you have to say for al-Sadr is he has chutzpah. Apparently, while hiding out in Iran, he's made a demand that the ISF forces which deserted in Basra, and the Iraqi government subsequently fired, be given their jobs back:
The anti-U.S. cleric says those who gave up their arms "were only obeying their grand religious leaders" and "were driven by their religious duties."

He says in a statement issued by his office in holy city of Najaf that they should be reinstated and even rewarded for their loyalty.
Of course the title of the post is one of the major problems Iraq now suffers. Sistani coming out and saying that the only legitimate law in Iraq was that of the Iraqi government was a very important statement. More clerics need to do that and hopefully will. But I would guess that al-Sadr's attitude is more prevalent than we might want to believe.
