No negotiation; kill them all. Drain the swamp, cull the herd.

Notice how these "moderate" Muslims always stand ready to bale the rabid ones out of trouble? We shouldn't let this clown into town.

If indeed he is coming to town, he will have pretty good credentials for coming in...after all he is the Iraqi National Security Adviser.

You've painted up your lips
And rolled and curled your tinted hair

al-Rubay'i are you contemplating
Going out somewhere

The shadow on the wall
Tells me the sun is going down

Oh al-Rubay'i
Don't take your love to town

Hopefully he will use a "donkey" cart as his mode of transportation.

The only acceptable response... Unconditional surrender! They come out naked, lie down in the dirt, and they all go to prison for treason against the Iraqi government. That includes Al Sadr, if he doesn't commit suicide like Hitler did.

I was looking for something a little deeper. Is he a friend of the coalition? A troublemaker?
