Slain Hizbollah Leader Co-Founded .... Mahdi Army

Like I said when I first heard Imad Mugniyah had passed Go to collect 72 virgins, I really hope we were the ones that got him. Roggio:

Imad Mugniyah, the senior Hezbollah military commander who was killed in Syria earlier this month, helped form the Mahdi Army, the military wing of the radical Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al Sadr, according to an Iraqi intelligence official.
There's also an "insurgent" group calling itself "Hezbollah in Iraq" that produces propaganda videos, from time to time, showing attacks on U.S. forces. I wonder if there's a relationship or if they were just inspired by their Lebanese namesake?
