On Moqtada al-Sadr

Or the "young radical cleric" as the BBC would have it. Is that an attempt to infantilise him? A dismissive establishment tag much like angry young man? I'm certain al-Sadr will pay it no mind. I'm all for the ridiculing of Islamofascist nut bags but this is off kilter. Not even the omniscient beings at Wikipedia will hazard a guess as to al-Sadr's date of birth. Anyway, he's ordered the Madhi Army to suspend trading for a bit while he gets his house in order. Apparently he's concerned about... er... radical elements.
