TEHRAN, Iran, Feb. 25 — The head of Iraq’s largest opposition group warned the United States on Tuesday that its military presence in post-war Iraq would not be welcome, and that any attempt to install a Pentagon general in Baghdad could be met with a “religious war.” Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim told MSNBC.com in an interview that Muslim fury over a long-term American occupation of Iraq would destabilize the Middle East.
Hakim's warning will come as no surprise to the Pentagon, which has kept its plans for post-war Iraq under wraps for fear of increasing tensions in the region ahead of a showdown with Saddam Hussein.
A "religious war"? So are these guys, even though they're the enemies of our enemies, the "evildoers" of the future?
Which Bush do you think is going to start the war against them? President Jeb? President George P.? President Jenna?
