Al Sadr Fled Iraq, Fearing U.S. Bombs

In my experience, the people who claim to be righteous and willing to die for their cause only do so from a safe distance.

While members of the U.S. House of Representatives take turns weighing in on President Bush's planned troop surge in Iraq, the focus in Iraq is not on the arrival of more U.S. troops, but the departure of one of the country's most powerful men, Moqtada al Sadr and members of his army.

Well according to Iraqi militants, US airstrikes only hit civilians so what does he have to worry about?

According to senior military officials, al Sadr left Baghdad two to three weeks ago and fled to Tehran, Iran, where he has family.

Custer's last stand this isn't. It's more like my little sister and I fighting when we were young...yea I always ran away. She's a tough little bastard.

Al Sadr commands the Mahdi army, one of the most formidable insurgent militias in Iraq.

Now one of the most powerful in Iran.

His move coincides with the announced U.S. troop surge in Baghdad.

Coincidence? Maybe.

Sources believe al Sadr is worried about an increase of 20,000 U.S. troops in the Iraqi capital. One official told ABC News' Martha Raddatz, "He is scared he will get a JDAM [bomb] dropped on his house."

Drop it anyway. Just to see the look on his face when he gets home.
