Shi'ites Turning Against Mahdi Army

The Coalition Forces continue to benefit from the abject cruelty and rapacity of its adversaries in Iraq. Just as the Sunni have turned against their erstwhile 'saviors' in al-Qaeda, the Shia are now turning against their own Mahdi Army, and in a big way, too. This story is almost a kind of statement against interest for the knee-jerk anti-war New York Times, so you know it's got to be true.

This seems to be a typical anecdote of why the Mahdis are losing hearts and minds:

two accomplices shot and killed a woman named Eman, a divorced mother, in front of her house, residents said. The fighters said she was a prostitute, but shortly after her death they brought tenants to rent her house.

It seems like maybe we are winning in Iraq by default.

Did you hear that Saddam's last meal request was Shi'ites on a shingle? That is not funny.
