Nouri will get the votes of Moqtada's supporters?

Hey, remember when the useless gasbags were telling you that Moqtada al-Sadr resigning meant that his votes would go to Nouri al-Maliki?

We called that stupidity out repeatedly (see Feb. 18th snapshot for one example).

For those still too stupid to grasp that Moqtada's supporters will not be voting for Nouri?

All Iraq News reports Moqtada's supporters were out in full force, protesting in Ammara against Nouri (who called Moqtada "immature" in his France24 interview).  All Iraq News notes that they also flooded the streets of Nassiriya protesting against Nouri.

While they call for Nouri's resignation today, Al Mada reports Ayad Allawi called for Nouri's resignation yesterday.  Allawi wants a caretaker government set up now, ahead of the elections.  This was proposed last go round.

Through Sunday, Iraq Body Count counts 346 violent deaths -- 346 in the first nine days of the month.


National Iraqi News Agency reports an Abu Ghraib roadside bombing left three people injured, a second Abu Ghraib bombing left two people injured, a Haditha roadside bombing left intelligence official Sabah Jubair al-Dulaimi dead and three Iraqi military personnel were left injured, a Malia roadside bombing left two Iraqi soldiers injured, Joint Operations Command announced they killed 6 suspects in Falluja, Sheikh Adowan al-Zuhairi was shot dead in Muqdadiyah, 2 Baqbua bombings left 2 people dead and four more injured, 2 bombings "between Amiriyat al-Fallujah and Babylon" left eleven Iraqi soldiers injured, a shooting inside a Mosul mosque left an Imam and a security guard injured, Baghdad Operations Command announced they killed 1 suspect, 2 police members were shot dead in Baquba,  and 2 corpses were discovered in Taji ("gunshot wounds").

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The 'Patriot' takes a Stand" went up earlier today, but I'll change the time stamp and make it the last thing up here before the snapshot.  He'll have another comic tomorrow.  Kat's "Kat's Korner: Are you listening to Ben Taylor?" went up Sunday.  New content at Third:
