A recruitment/public relations video from the Mahdi Army, a Shiite Iraqi military force.

The Mahdi Army began as a small group of 500 seminary students affiliated with Muqtada al-Sadr, administering aid to Iraqis and providing security in the Shiite slums from looters. But the army's ranks have grown to 10,000 militia dedicated to expelling the United States from Iraq.
