It's nice to see how respected and well loved we are in Iraq. Kudos to our righties: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/02/24/iraq/main541815.shtml Hundreds of thousands of Shiites chanting "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" marched through the streets of Baghdad's biggest Shiite district Friday in a massive show of support for Hezbollah in its battle against Israel. No violence was reported during the rally in Sadr City. But at least 35 people were killed elsewhere in the country, most of them in a car bombings and gun battle in northern Iraq. The demonstration was the biggest in the Middle East in support of Hezbollah since Israel launched its attacks against the guerrillas in Lebanon on July 12. The protest was organized by radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose political movement built around the Mahdi Army militia has been modeled after Hezbollah. Al-Sadr summoned followers from throughout the Shiite heartland of southern Iraq to converge on Baghdad for the rally but he himself did not attend.
