And so it begins ...

Al-Sadr supporters take over Najaf. And just as U.S. marines are converging on Fallujah and, as the article describes, "coming under heavy fire from insurgents," supporters of cleric Muqtada al-Sadr have taken over the holy city of Najaf.

In other words, the initial skirmish is long since over. The real battle has just begun.
