In a clear sign that Iraq's interim government is ready to fight fire with fire, Prime Minister Iyad Allawi reportedly threatened to have rebel cleric Moqtada al Sadr beheaded earlier this year unless violence perpetrated by his Mahdi terrorist army in Najaf subsided.
On Friday, NBC's Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski recounted a meeting between Allawi and Grand Ayatollah al Husseini al Sistani in August after al Sistani was brought back from London, where he was being treated for a heart ailment.

I knew I liked that Allawi guy!
Yep, sounds good to me.
He better do it fast. al Sadr wants to do the same to Allawi.
I wish he had done it instead of threatening it.
You guys want to borrow my dull butter knife?
Since they seem to think beheading is a bad thing to do to someone, let's give them something bad back.
Allawi has a bigger set than Kerry!
I like this guy a lot. Maybe we can get him to move here and run for Senate or something.
You make the implicit assumption that Kerry has a set at all.
I was talking abot teRAYza.
I think TerAYYYZAH carries them around with her
I think the Arab TV networks ought to get a chance to carry this live...rather than all the poor tape quality stuff in the past. And I'd put the guy in a orange suit...just make a impression. And right before I carried out the execution...I'd bring out a mullah-type to pronounce that Al Sadr can't enter the gates of paradise. That would settle alot of scores.
It's not an easy task. Fat-neck Al Sadr is the John Belushi of terrorists.
A good idea! And then send the head to Tehran.
Draw and quarter and send a piece to each corner of the Sunni triangle.
Don't know what to do with the extra quarter.
Easiest solution would be to cut the head into sixths, and send two pieces each.
An oversized apple corer/slicer should do the trick.
