It's clear that these guys are Wahhabists. Wahhabists are the Muslims who are big on jihad as "holy war". Thus the Saudi connection to Osama bin Laden and 9/11. Most Muslims do not interpret the doctrine of jihad this way. They interpret jihad as a personal struggle against sin. Other governments of Muslims countries, Turkey in particular (which is official a secular state, not an "Islamic" state) are really against any concept of jihad as a "holy war".

OK, ethnically they are not British, but Arabic, perhaps of British birth, but not ancestry. They are fighting with Iraqis against the Coalition troops.

Iraqi's and Iranians, we must remember that this "home grown" insurgency by al Sadr recieves massive quantities of support from the Iranians.

Well, I'd sort of expect the Shi'ites in Iran to support their fellow Shi'ites in Iraq. Remember, Sistani was born in Iran.

Its all about geopolitics, Iran and Saudi Arabia do not want to see a productive Iraq gaining power in the region and they are doing everything in their power to subvert it.
