Winds of Change is suggesting this morning that all of it, or nearly so is coming from outside Iraq.

Iran, for example has pumped upwards of $80million US into Sadr’s insurgency.  THey’re now linking The Sunday Herald, who claims that last month representative of the Mahdi Army, the Islamic Path Party, and Hezbollah met in London with Syrian and Saudi Islamists to add a Shi’ite component to the insurgency.

WOC goes on to suggest that Sadr’s planning on making a break for Iran where he will claim political assylum.
