I'm not buying the Sadr truce...even as hudna.

Explosions rack Green Zone in Iraq.

Splinter group of Mookie al Sadr's militia blamed. (Splinter group my's Mookie at work, pure and simple.)

A series of rockets or mortars has struck Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, home to the U.S. Embassy and Iraqi government headquarters.

At least 10 blasts were heard inside the 10-square-kilometer complex Saturday, as authorities warned people to take cover. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The Green Zone has been a frequent target of rocket and mortar attacks. The U.S. military has blamed the attacks on Iranian-backed Shi'ite militants who have broken away from radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.

About Mookie's hudna.
