Shia and Sunni Iraqis ask the Occupation to Leave

"A number of the main Iraqi Sunni and Shia parties had several meetings today. The meetings reflected a united Muslim front against any attempts of splitting the Iraqi people along sectarian and ethnic lines.

The main Shia and Sunni parties asked the occupation troops to schedule withdrawal as soon as possible.

It's important to mention that the current sectarian tension was handled very efficiently by the Iraqi religious and social leaders working with their elected national government, and that the occupation troops and authorities didn't take any part in "protecting Iraqis from each other", which is the bush administration's number one excuse for keeping the troops in Iraq."

That would be news except that those are Sadr's shi'a, which have always called for our immediate withdrawal, and those are the very people most likely responsible for the current situation, how convenient for Sadr.
