Sadr Insurgency continues to be crushed

Here is a report from the New York Times about the Coalition's military success in Karbala. While there is much left to be done in Iraq, and sadly many more will be killed before a stable society can arise there, it looks to me like things are going pretty well. Moktada al-Sadr has utterly failed to turn his bid for power into a popular uprising. The Iraqi people and even most of the other clerics have utterly rejected his vision of Iraq as an Iranian style theocracy. Update: read this post by Zeyad of Healing Iraq on a recent response by some Iraqi clerics to Sadr.
