"Is This Where The Streaking Party Is?"

al-Reuters has this report on some of the other events going on during Iraq's Rebellion Week:

This week's sudden Shi'ite uprising, coinciding with the U.S. crackdown on Sunni towns like Falluja and Ramadi, has drawn some expressions of Sunni-Shi'ite solidarity, but it is not clear whether the rebel groups are coordinating.

Thousands of Sunni and Shi'ite protesters gathered outside Baghdad's Um al-Qura mosque, chanting slogans in support of people in Falluja, Kerbala and other conflict zones. Similar rallies took place in Mosul and Baquba, north of the capital

"We will carry our swords and strike the Americans on their heads," a Sunni cleric yelled. Trucks with food and other goods then left Baghdad for Falluja, which is ringed by U.S. forces. [emphasis added]
So he's going to bring a knife... to a gun fight. Apparently he's never seen this film.

"We will carry our swords and strike the Americans on their heads."

OK, that's fine. And we will carry a 30-mm cannon and 16,000 pounds of mixed ordnance and strike you on yours.
