Seems he is getting his ass kicked and is looking for a way out.

Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr vowed today to press on with his fight against the US-led occupation of Iraq but said he would disband his Mehdi Army militia if Shia leaders asked him to.

“If the Americans want to leave Iraq then this would bring peace, but their presence in Iraq is not peace and will lead to the spread of terrorism,” Sadr said in Najaf’s Imam Ali shrine, one of the Shia faith’s most sacred sites. “We are ready for any American escalation. We don’t expect anything else,” he told a rare news conference.

Sadr did not say whether talks over the past two days among Shia groups in Najaf had produced an agreement that could end his uprising. But he praised efforts by “honest parties” to try to end the crisis and accused US-led forces of sowing discord.

If Shia religious authorities issued a fatwa, or edict, telling him to disband his Mehdi Army militia then he would comply with it, Sadr said. “The dissolution of the Mehdi Army depends on the religious authorities. If they issue an edict to disband the Mehdi Army then we will disband it. If not, then it will remain to defend this country and its sanctity,” he said.

Yesterday, the US general commanding forces in the Najaf region indicated that elements of the Mehdi Army could be included in a local force which could take over security in Najaf. But Sadr said the Mehdi Army would not join such a force until foreign troops left Iraq.

Moqtada al-Sadr just wants a piece of the politicial pie in the new Iraqi goverment. He is stirring up this shit storm to force our hand into concessions for him and his followers. He's a scumbag taking advantage of us for trusting him and allowing his militia to be formed in the first place. He originally promised to help keep order and stop any looting. I can't wait for some Delta sniper to kill that son of a bitch.

Isn't a Shia cleric a Shia religious authority?

Basicaly, a "hit" or contract on his head. And these people never forget; Saloman Rushdi (SP), was in hiding for years over the "Satanic Verses".

So basically they'll take their hats off and then continue planting IEDs and firing their RPGs at us.
