BAGHDAD (AP) -- The powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr ordered his militiamen on Sunday to redouble their battle to oust American forces and argued that Iraq's army and police should join him in defeating ''your archenemy.'' The U.S. military announced the weekend deaths of 10 American soldiers, including six killed on Sunday.
The violence is getting worse and will only increase as long as we stay in Iraq. American soldiers are targets for Iraqis of virtually every stripe. Every day that goes by the danger worsens. Call congress, call the senate. Bitch until American soldiers are withdrawn from Iraq. It is time to end this war. Now.
