Associated PressIraq Adviser: Al-Sadr in Iran
February 15, 2007, 2:45 PM ET

An adviser to Iraq's prime minister said Thursday that radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is in Iran, but denied he fled due to fear of arrest during an escalating security crackdown. Sami al-Askari said al-Sadr traveled to Iran by land "a few days ago," but gave no further details on how long he would stay. A member of al-Sadr's bloc in parliament, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of fear of reprisals, said he left three weeks ago. "I confirm that Muqtada al-Sadr is in Iran on a visit," said al-Askari. "But I deny that his visit is a flight."

The chief U.S. military spokesman, Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, said al-Sadr "is not in the country, and indications are that he's just another Islamist coward, telling others to fight, but he stays cowardly, in the background."*

The mercurial al-Sadr, who is not believed to have visited Baghdad in more than two years, often drops out of public view for weeks or months at a time. He failed to turn up for a planned speech Monday in the southern city of Najaf, where he lives, and has not been seen in public since Jan. 3. He is believed to sleep in a different location every night to guard against attack.
Al-Sadr's militia is widely believed to receive Iranian money and weapons. Al-Sadr's family, one of the most prominent in the Middle East, won prestige by staying in Iraq during Saddam Hussein's dictatorship - unlike prominent Shiite figures from mainstream parties who sought refuge in Tehran during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. Both al-Sadr's father and father-in-law were believed killed by Saddam's regime. Muqtada Al-Sadr rose from relative obscurity to become a national figure in the weeks after Saddam's ouster in 2003. He is widely recognized to be completely illiterate, relying upon his rote-training in the Koran from his past for his ignorant beligerance. His anti-American rhetoric and emphasis on his Arab ancestry - he claims descent from the Prophet Muhammad - have earned him the support of young and underprivileged Shiites across Iraq.*

Al-Sadr Moves To Iran, Commands Iraqi Militia from Relative Safety

This guy is a Coward. Unwilling to lead his militia in the fight directly, he runs off to Iran now to direct his militia's fight from afar, a safe distance from the actual fight back in Baghdad. Just like the other cowards, his heros, al-Queda leaders Osama bin-Laden and second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, he directs his followers to fight and die for Islam, preaching the nightmare of a sex-laden Paradise.
Like all the Islamic Jihad leaders, he is too important to battle, himself. Instead, he leads his ignorant yet effective fighters by instigation, rather than by example. And that is the inherent trouble with Islam. Islam is led by cowards, and always has been led by cowards who have made pronouncements while hiding behind little children, or under their women's petticoats.
On a sliding scale, how does this rate? Compared to real leaders during wars, who have led their troops into the battle? Even General Custer was a better leader than Muqtada al-Sadr, since he died in battle with his troops.

When I was a little kid (eons ago) we had a word for people like "Mooqie".
That word was; 'CHICKEN SHIT'. They were the type of punks who would stick their tongue out at you and say: "Na na na na, you can't catch me", then they would run like hell crying: "Mommie,mommie" if you chased them.
