Are we really supposed to believe that Iraqi's want America there to protect them from civil war?

Iraqi Cleric Challenges U.S. With Big Rally

BAGHDAD, April 9 — Tens of thousands of protesters loyal to the militant Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr took to the streets of the holy city of Najaf on Monday in an extraordinarily disciplined rally to demand an end to the American military presence in Iraq, burning American flags and chanting “Death to America.”

During the protest in Najaf, Sadr followers draped themselves in Iraqi flags and waved them to symbolize national unity, and there were a small number of conservative Sunni Arabs who joined the march.

“We have 30 people who came,” said Ayad Abdul Wahab, an agriculture professor in Basra and an official in the Iraqi Islamic Party, a leading fundamentalist Sunni Arab group. “We support Moktada in this demonstration, and we stress our rejection of foreign occupation.”

“America made efforts to stoke sectarian strife, and here I would like to tell you, the sons of the two rivers, that you have proved your ability to surpass difficulties and sacrifice yourselves, despite the conspiracies of the evil powers against you.”

An Interior Ministry employee in a flowing tan robe, Haider Abdul Rahim Mustafa, 23, said he had come from Basra “to demand the withdrawal of the occupier.”

“The occupier supported Saddam and helped him to become stronger, then removed him because his cards were burned,” he said, using an Arabic expression that means Saddam Hussein no longer held useful cards. “The fall of Saddam means nothing to us as long as the alternative is the American occupation.”

You see this POL? Iraqi Shia's chanting "death to America". Why were you so convinced that I was a "sunni insurgent" supporter?

I told you sunni's and shia's are untied in their resistance to the USA.

RESPECT it!
Legitimize the Iraq resistance. Its the only way the Americans won't be able to succeed in their mission of the stealing and destruction of Iraq.

Yeah both groups want America out, the American people want America out, the world wants America out of Iraq. But guess what the true masters of this government: big oil, the israel lobby, and big defense contractors want us to stay. So our whore/traitor politicians and their sycophants in the Israel loving media will keep us put, right there in Iraq. Why? because our democracy is sheettt, our the only bigger hunk of sheeet known in the world is the lump of crap between George Bush's ears that he calls his brain.

Rowley, they may be united in their hatred of the US occupation, but they are also united in their desire to kill each other. This post doesn't explain away the sectarian attacks and attrocities of the insurgency. And these peaceful protesters are not "insurgents" anyway.

I beg to differ. You and I have no clue how many of these protestors were part of the resistance.

Its not about sunni's vs. shia's. Its about those who help the invader and those who don't. Washington wants you think its a religious conflict while its really not. Its about the invasion and occupation and which side different Iraqi's chose to be on.

Bad choice to join with the foreign invaders. Bad choice.

Any man in any country should always know the consequences one may face for joining a violent foreign invader. Their like rats who have deserted their own people. Don't ever be a rat. Its almost the lowest you can go

The so-called "New Iraqi Army", their all a bunch of rats who have betrayed their own people and may one face consequense for their actions. God help them for the disastrous decisions they've made.
