Independent describes rout of Sadr as US retreat

Justin Huggler of the UK's Independent describes a truce proposed by Sadr which removes his militia from control of any Iraqi city as a retreat by the US. He basis this on the US decision to forego for the time being capture of Sadr.

Most people recognize that the party asking for the truce is the one who is losing and in fact Sadr forces were being destroyed by the US forces that engaged them. It is still not clear what a truce means to Sadr and his group of thugs since they are celebrating it by launching mortars at US bases. That suggest that further destruction of his forces is probably in order.
