HEH:

NAJAF, Iraq — About 1,000 people, including a few women in black veils, marched through the streets of Najaf on Tuesday to urge radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and his followers to leave the city.

Did I say “heh?” By a curious coincidence, Sadr now seems to be backing down.

UPDATE: Michael Ubaldi is saying “I told you so,” to the pessimists.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Jason van Steenwyck is less optimistic about Fallujah.
