Antiwar demonstration called

... for Iraq:
Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr called on Thursday for a million Iraqis to march against U.S. "occupiers", threatening a massive show of strength a week after his Mehdi Army militia battled U.S. and government troops.

"The time has come to express your rejections and raise your voices loud against the unjust occupier and enemy of nations and humanity, and against the horrible massacres committed by the occupier against our honorable people," [the statement released by al-Sadr] said.
"Enemy of nations and humanity," huh? I might have to rethink my denial that al-Sadr is "anti-American." No, not really. Because, if opposition to the actions of the U.S. government is "anti-American," then I and millions of other Americans (a majority in the case of Iraq) are "anti-American" as well.
