Qasem Soleimani is in Iraq right now, reportedly working to preserve Iranian influence by building a coalition to counter Sadr's Sayirun party.

This is an interesting turn of events. I trust that little gerbil Sadr about as far as I can drop-kick him. Really seems like he is building a coalition of oddballs, communists, secular Arabists, and nationalists, which is...surprising...to me, anyway.
