Ideas not guns? 

In todays LA Times Brigadier General Mark Hertling, deputy commander of the 1st Armored Division, is quoted as saying "We're going to drive this guy (al-Sadr) into the dirt. Either he tells his militia to put down their arms, form a political party and fight with ideas not guns -- or he's going to find a lot of them killed"

Well General Hertling, how is he supposed to "fight with ideas not guns" when the U.S. just shut down his newspaper a couple of weeks ago? It seems the people who decided to resolve things through force are the US military forces, not al-Sadr.
