They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Sadr called the forces of occupation to withdraw from Iraq according to a fixed time table demanding the Iraqi parliament to vote on the full pull out of foreign troops from the Iraqi territories.

He said that he cut his visit to Lebanon and intended to head to Iraq despite of obstacles put by forces of occupation in face of his return warning of consequences that might affect his personal safety.
