"TEHRAN, Iran, Feb. 25 —  The head of Iraq’s largest opposition group warned
the United States on Tuesday that its military presence in post-war Iraq would
not be welcome, and that any attempt to install a Pentagon general in Baghdad
could be met with a “religious war.” Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim told
MSNBC.com in an interview that Muslim fury over a long-term American
occupation of Iraq would destabilize the Middle East."

Yes, I know that the real meaning is "We want you to overthrow Saddam Hussein
and put us in power," but still - !  Doesn't this qualify as an "embarrassing
development"?
