Sadr will not disband militia: webmongs will not wank
If you have been follwing the news over the past few days then you will have noticed the glee with which the American media have reported the story that Muqtada al-Sadr would disband his militia if so instructed by the senior Shia religious leaders. Not just the media, but a fair few British wankblogs were getting ready to greet the news that the Sadr militia were no more with a furious pud pull, followed by a great spurt all over the monitor screen.
Sorry, boys, but you can put your todgers away because it isn't going to happen. They've told him to keep his army intact.
As Juan Cole pointed out, Sadr has a habit of offering to disband his militia from time to time because it makes him look all sweetness and light in Shia eyes. The good Dr Cole also pointed out that the chances of the militia actually being disbanded within a week of its victory over the imperialist forces and their stooges in Basra were non-existent.
Lads, what can I say? This is a no-wank moment.
