Binocular Snapshot for 8/09/2011

LastDayWatchers you will continue to see more evidence which exposes the lie to the so-called "success of the surge" and the so-call "Iraq Awakening" which is being put to sleep!  

A powerful anti-American Shiite cleric called Tuesday on U.S. troops in Iraq to leave the country and go back to their families or risk more attacks 

"Muqtada al-Sadr's comments came in a rare statement translated into English and directed at U.S. troops in Iraq. The statement was posted on his website. 

"Go forth from our holy land and go back to your families who are waiting for you impatiently," 

The comment appeared to be a nod to the unpopularity of the Iraq war in the U.S. where many people are frustrated with the length of the war and the heavy burden it has put on American troops. 

Al-Sadr and his militia members have vowed to assault any American force that remains and have already been attacking American troops with rockets and bombs. 

Al-Sadr added that Iraqi security forces are able to handle the country's security challenges without the help of U.S. troops or trainers. 

"Enough of this occupation, terror and abuse. We are not in need of your help. We are able to combat and defeat terrorism, and achieve unity," he said. "We are not in need of your bases, your experience." 

In June alone, 14 U.S. soldiers were killed in combat, making it the bloodiest month for the U.S. military in Iraq in two years. Nearly all of them were killed in attacks by Shiite militias."

"As for you, satanic Awakenings, we strive to guide you more than you strive to kill us. If you come to us in repentance, we will accept your repentance even if you killed a million people" 

The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, said the group was growing stronger "despite all the difficulties and challenges" and was still training and sheltering foreign fighters, the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group said"
