"We suffered for 35 years under Saddam Hussein. He killed our clerics. He killed our poets. He killed our writers," Kadhim Abdul Karim said, as US tanks and Humvees rattled past his street. "All our intellectuals left Iraq and our doctors left the country as well. Whatever happens next we want the Americans to stay." He added: "We are typical Iraqis. Moqtada and his supporters are the Taliban of Najaf. You in the west have to understand this. We don't want them."
