Default Lawmakers loyal to al-Sadr denounce Iraqi

Does this move have anything to do with Iran? Iraq's govt. was designed in Iran. And Iran does supply many fractions with newer Russian muniations, which there has been proof of.

Lawmakers loyal to al-Sadr denounce Iraqi gov't


By HAMID AHMED Associated Press Writer
2008 The Associated Press


BAGHDAD — Lawmakers loyal to anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr accused the Iraqi government of trying to crush the movement and warned Saturday of "black clouds" on the horizon for truces that have eased fighting between al-Sadr's militia and security forces.

The Sadrist Movement has heightened its rhetoric against the government in recent days, raising concerns over the cease-fires in the southern city of Basra and Baghdad's Sadr City district, the stronghold of al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia.

Still, the lawmakers and other al-Sadr officials said they are adhering to the truces. The cease-fires are crucial to Iraqi security forces' sweeps in Basra and Sadr City, launched by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to show his government can spread its authority in areas long dominated by armed groups like al-Sadr's.
