Sunnis and Sadr's Shiites make peace.

This is truly wonderful news.

The weekend Australian has this:

"THE movement of Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, alleged to have played a role in the anti-Sunni violence over the last few days, publicly made peace with political and religious Sunni leaders overnight.

Four sheikhs from the Sadr movement made a "pact of honour" with the conservative Sunni Muslim Scholars Association, and called for an end to attacks on places of worship, the shedding of blood and condemning any act leading to sedition."

Gee, I know this is gonna so disappoint you lefties who keep hoping for that civil war that your pundits have been predicting for the last couple of years.

Please don't give me that "of course we want peace" stuff either. Everytime there is violence over there you guys go on and on about a possible civil war in a gleeful tone, hoping that Bush can be proven wrong. It's more important than anything else to you guys.
