Martial Law Unfolding In Iraq: 30 Protesters Shot, Internet Blackout, 24-Hour Curfews

Now in their third day, mass anti-government protests across Iraq have resulted in 30 dead and over 1000 wounded, amid a brutal police crackdown which has involved unprepared security forces firing live rounds on demonstrators.

Several major cities are now under curfew and the government has cut internet access for much of the country. In a signal of just how dire and growing the mayhem is, Iran has now sealed key border crossings with Iraq just ahead of an annual Shia pilgrimage this month, where crucial Iran-Iraq border crossings swell with pilgrims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

folks, Iraq was allegedly "conquered", and given a (US-Centric) government; what has happened since then, has been one of the greatest transfers of wealth away from the Iraqi people, and toward the monied who are in favored positions to profit handsomely from Iraq's current corrupt leadership.

And my big question, having seen that Moqtada Al Sadr was in Iran this week, ( ON 9/11) and allowed himself to be photo-blogged with Supreme Leader Rouhani, and the leader of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, just what the heck he might be up to, right now?

Please remember; this guy is like a "father figure" to many young Shia Iraqi men, and his "Mahdi Army" fought both the Sunni militias, and occasionally US forces as well, and with some very intensely-won results.

Reports indicate that he is constantly in touch with the former "high commanders" of this group,so I am asking myself; how long would it take Al Sadr to "get the band back together" to fight this corrupt government at every turn?!?

What if he has discovered that his " political clout" in the last election, seeing that his party now has a plurality from the last Iraqi elections, was not enough to rid Iraq of the intense corruption which has plagued it, ever since the US invasion/occupation?!?

I would like to hope that this is keeping SOME FOLKS in the Pentagon and State Department up at nights; it sure the heck does for me!!
