Cleric Calls for U.S. Resistance in Iraq - Badr brigade armed and out in force: "Al-Qobanji also urged more support for the Badr Brigade, the armed wing of al-Hakim's Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq. U.S. troops ordered the brigade disarmed and disbanded early in the occupation. ``The Badr Brigade must continue to exist and thrive. They must be supported and recognized,'' al-Qobanji said to chants of ``We are all Badr Brigade.'' Members of the brigade, armed with AK-47 rifles, were out in force around the shrine, each wearing an arm band with ``Badr'' written on it."
