You are getting sle-e-e-e-e-py.... Very, very sle-e-e-e-e-py....According to this latest news item, things in Najaf may be about to come to a head.

Puppet Prime Minister Ayad Allawi is issuing yet another final ultimatum to Muqtada al-Sadr and his wacko followers still holed up in that shrine, warning that unless they immediately lay down their arms, then another ultimatum warning of dire consequences may be forthcoming. This could, in turn, lead to an final ultimatum followed by, quite possibly, another absolutely, positively no more ultimatums after this ultimatum. Both sides are currently in negotiations over the exact wording of the next ultimatum, which may or may not be the last one.

What's next? A bunch of "final chances?"

Personally, I think it would be easier to just gas the whole bunch of 'em.
