Iraqi Army working with Moqtada al-Sadr

This kinda reminds me of the last Miss Dynamite anime episode.

This clip dated May 10, 2007 shows soldiers of the Iraqi Army (trained by the Americans) fighting in cooperation with the Mahdi Army of Moqtada al-Sadr (the Mahdi is Shia and we can guess they are unloading their weapons in the direction of Sunnis). The same Mahdi Army who kidnaps and kills US and British soldiers and foreign nationals.
[The cameraman] repeatedly shouts a Shi’ite slogan, “Ali wiyak, Ali,” which means “May Ali be with you,” in reference to the first Shi’ite imam Ali bin Abi Talib, the nephew and son-in-law of the prophet Mohammed, as the gunmen and militiamen spray the street with bullets. In another instance, he shouts “Ali yinusrak ‘ala ahl al Fadhil, al manaweech,” meaning “May Ali grant you victory over the residents of Al-Fadhil, the bastards.”
A militiamen dressed in a tracksuit is seen firing a rocket-propelled grenade in the direction of Fadhil, while an Iraqi soldier toting a PKC machine gun provides cover from behind a concrete bloc. The cameraman then hands over his cell phone to a fellow soldier and says, “Film me while I go shoot a few bullets.” He then fires randomly from behind the concrete bloc, as he screams, “Those Wahhabis, the brothers of whores.”

They look like happy in the middle of the battle field, wasting bullets, making movies, screaming logos and stuff!

Ethnic cleansing is really underrated as good clean fun for all.

All these people are out of their damn minds...

Americans and Iraqis alike.

The squabbles that are in play...
The glory that they're supposedly thirsting for...

None of it is worth killing over-- much less dying for.

I do not think you can win-over those types of hearts and minds, unless it's at the barrel of a gun.

Hard to get through to a person with such a strong religious underpinning.

Well, that looked like fun.
Kinda what we used to do when I was young(er), growing up in Redneck/Hillbilly country here; gab some automatic weapons and shoot something to pieces.
Of course, nobody was shooting back at us.

I cannot believe it!
There is a type which turns with a telephone!
They do not look like soldiers in a conflict.
Sure, they seem to have fun.
