Secular Iraq

Perhaps one reason why Sadr attempted to seize power by force:

The poll was the latest in a series which this overwhelmingly Shia province has held in the past six weeks, and the results have been surprising. Seventeen towns have voted, and in almost every case secular independents and representatives of non-religious parties did better than the Islamists.

Hopefully the recent taste of Sadr's tactics will bolster this trend.
