How the 1st Armored division defeated Sadr

Washington Times:

The Army's powerful 1st Armored Division is proclaiming victory over Sheik Muqtada al-Sadr's marauding militia that just a month ago seemed on the verge of conquering southern Iraq. The Germany-based division defeated the militia with a mix of American firepower and money paid to informants. Officers today say "Operation Iron Saber" will go down in military history books as one of the most important battles in post-Saddam Hussein Iraq.
The feeling I have is that Zarqawi's insurgency is on its last legs as well. Tough times in Iraq still remain but we are winning this fight. I am supremely confident that history will judge the Iraq war as moral, necessary and brilliantly executed.
