Cleric vows suicide bombings if U.S. strikes

KUFA, Iraq - The Shiite Muslim cleric wanted on murder charges threatened on Friday to launch suicide attacks if U.S. troops attack him and his forces in the holy city of Najaf.

Muqtada al-Sadr was speaking during the Friday prayers sermon in Kufa, another Shiite Muslim holy city a few miles from Najaf. The area is mostly controlled by his Al-Mahdi Army militia, whose members have clashed with U.S. troops several times since their uprising began on April 4.

Oh, OK. So, I guess that this is supposed to be something new that will strike fear in our hearts. I do declare, he IS as stupid as he looks.

Will someone please hammer this guy? The virgins await.
