A US imposed constitution with a puppet government.. I bet he cherishes the thought, I know you would!
As opposed to a Genocial dictators...hmmm...I think his present options are much better. Under Saddam the Shia were constantly butchered for their faith. Regardless, it won't be our puppet government come January of next year when elections are held (I believe that's the date). Anyway, it appears Sadr heard me
and knows brilliance when he reads it. From the CNN article:
In a letter from al-Sadr's office in Baghdad, the cleric said he agreed to demands Tuesday night by a delegation from the Iraqi National Conference that he and his forces leave the mosque, disband his Mehdi Army and "enter into the mainstream political process."
All kidding aside, if he really does choose this course of action it's the best way to accomplish his goals, even if I'm very concerned that they aren't in the best interest of the US.
