Yahoo! News - U.S. Troops Enter Najaf, Pressure Militia

And the idiots in our government apparently aren't paying attention to reality. This comes three days after Iranian clerics...warned the US that a military assault on two holy cities in Iraq would unleash the wrath of Shia Muslims."
This is lunacy. It's like attacking Mecca. Is it possible the Bush administration actually wants a Shiite uprising across the Middle East? Because everything they're doing seems calculated to start one.
Indeed, every single decision the Bush administration has made has been as wrong as possible. That seems highly unlikely, so I have to believe they actually want these uprisings.
One other question: does all this seem an appropriate response to having four mercenaries killed and mutilated? After all, we've only lost hundreds of actual real American soldiers, thanks to Bush's failed policies.
