Agreement Reached

From the NY Times:
Iraq's most powerful Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, and the rebel cleric Moktada al-Sadr met today and forged an agreement that was aimed at ending the fighting that has engulfed this city for the last three weeks, aides to the clerics said.

The aides, while describing the talks as successful, did not provide details of the agreement.
I'm guessing it's something like:
  1. Allawi steps down.
  2. US and other coalition forces leave the country.
  3. Iraqis celebrate.
I've already sent them a message on behalf of the US agreeing to these terms. (Just kidding, Mr. Attorney General! I'm well aware that only Halliburton and Jack Idema are allowed to engage in private foreign policy.)
