Whose bright idea was that?

No verification yet from one of the major news sites, but according to this article on an Arabic news website, U.S. soldiers have apparently raided and ransacked the house of Adnan Hamad, the former head coach of the Iraqi soccer team. Hamad recently resigned, claiming that he could not continue to coach the team under current circumstances. (Anyone want to take a shot at translating this?)

Given that Iraqi soccer fans are known for firing terrifyingly large volleys of small arms fire into the air everytime their team wins, was this really a wise move?

We can arguably continue to beat down the Iraqi resistance for many years, or until people back in the U.S. get fed up with non-stop war... but could we beat down every Iraqi soccer fan? I don't think so. They're the *true* fanatics.
