Restive Iraqi South

The British have never had control of the South. It is going to be intra-Shia conflict (already is), with the Mahdi Army growing stronger by the day.
Right now the British have about 7,100 soldiers in Iraq while the US has slightly more than 150,000 soldiers in Iraq. The British in Basra are proportionally suffering three times the combat deaths as the US this month... so much for the quiet south.
