Reinstate deserters?

ahoo! News reported Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is demanding the Iraqi government reinstate all security forces fired for deserting during fighting in Basra.

I hope they tell im to pound sand (and they have plenty of it).
Monday's statement comes a day after more than 1,300 soldiers and policemen were sacked for abandoning their posts or refusing to fight when clashes broke out.
They should be shot.
The anti-U.S. cleric says those who gave up their arms "were only obeying their grand religious leaders" and "were driven by their religious duties."
Then make them priests, but they should not be in the police or the army.
He says in a statement issued by his office in holy city of Najaf that they should be reinstated and even rewarded for their loyalty.
Reward is up to Allah.
