These are the kinds of moments on which history turns.
Grand Ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani has returned to Iraq, and is calling on Iraqis to march on the city of Najaf, in order to bring peace to it. Moqtada al-Sadr also called on his own followers to join the march.
Presumably, Sadr and his forces will freely walk away from the shrine. Will they be walk away heroes too?
It seems ironic to think that we might see fighting in Najaf ended by, of all things, a peaceful march.
