Details Matter Here

Not just another story of military deaths in Iraq:

Dozens of people were killed as Shia militiamen battled the Iraqi Army for control of a city in southern Iraq yesterday.

That's right, Shia militamen — that would be Moqtada al-Sadr's "al-Mahdi Army" — attacked the army of Iraq. That's a big deal. That's not insurgency, that's insurrection. Those weren't Americans, or even "coalition troops" they were shooting at. That was the Iraqi Army. It's a direct challenge to the fledgling government of Iraq by... Iran's chief stooge.
