Iraqis protest U.S., demand Islamic state
“Thousands of demonstrators poured into the streets of Baghdad after Friday prayers to protest the U.S. presence in Iraq and demand an Islamic state to take the place of Saddam Hussein’s secular government.”
“What is amazing, at least to me, is the amount and strength of the opposition to the US already on the ground. The Shia and Sunni clerics, free of Saddam’s secret police and bolstered by armed militias, are already mobilizing, while the US is oblivious to the growing organization.”
