#1 Okay, let's now take bets on the following:

1) The actual number of "volunteers" (remember, according to the Muslim mindset, we are still bogged down in fierce fighting somewhere south of Basra).

2) The number of the volunteers who are actually Iraqui.

3) The number of these ferocious Muslim warriors who would actually face an American soldier in combat, as opposed to those throwing away their weapon and running in another direction while rapidly stripping off uniform items at the sound of a round being chambered in an M-16.

#2 Man, for jihadis, those are some tough requirements. Since Sadr's an Arab, 10,000 is a joke, and he won't even miss a beat if later it turns out it was 100. S'okay, He's a Muslim - better yet, a Holy Man. The "truth" is just a tool.

I wanna say the answers are zip, zilch, and nada, but there are many many stupid people - and a disproportionate number are Iraqi - which are predominately Shi'a... Just for fun...

"I'll take Sucker Bets for 1,000, Alex!"
(Alexadenon reads the 3-part answer, "1- The actual number of...")
"What are 1000, 100, and zero?"

#3 Spec ops should snatch that guy during the night and put him on ice before he riles things up out of control.

#4 I think this little Sadr fella just needs a hug, a muffin and repeated kidney punch's until he relax's

#5 Sadr is not a threAT TO American soldiers . Our trooops are well trained. But Sadr is 22-32 years old and is in Iraq for the long run.His followers are the new young generation. Sistani is very old and will not be around for long. American soldiers will eventually leave Iraq no matter what ( boys gotta come back home).After that we will have a Sadr who will after 'studies' be a fully fledged Ayatollahs with weighty Fatwas. And there will be no one to stop him, no America,no Saddam, no Baathists no nothing. It will just be Ayatollah Sadr and his fanatic numerous followers and a weak puppet regime in Iraq that is linked together by a strong rope of sand. Folks brace yourselves for Gulf War three...the next republican presi will sell us a war telling us Sadr is a clear and imminent danger to us ahahahahaa....time will tell

#6 Stevey....you are so delusional. 1 JDAM at his next big Nurenburgshia rally, and his long run is over. And what are the Shiitaki gonna do about it...demonstrate some "Rage of the Arab Street" that has us shakin' in our boots?

#8 Please, please let them organize their little "army". Let them all gather together in one place, in their nice new uniforms. Let them have their parades, their medals, their little game.

One step out of line, though, and three AC-130's will run figure-8's across their formation. Those that are left will be allowed to leave, and tell their bretheren exactly what happens when you kick a tiger in the teeth one time too many.
