Iraq's simmering south |

Part 1 of a 3 part series on the difficult problems we're facing in Iraq. Note the new tools of religion indicated below - Mercedes Benz's and AK-47's - still makes me ponder the benefits of religions in the world - seems like more often than not, they are just a cause of strife.

"'No to the invaders!' chant thousands of Iraqi followers, sitting on prayer rugs in the mosque's dusty inner courtyard. After the sermon, Mr. Sadr speeds away in a Mercedes Benz, accompanied by a phalanx of bodyguards carrying AK-47s"
