PRE-SURRENDERING: No doubt by now

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:23 am

PRE-SURRENDERING: No doubt by now you’ve heard about Saddam’s soldiers who surrendered to British forces conducting war exercises. Here was the situation according to someone on the scene: “The British guys on the front-line could not believe what was happening. They were on pre-war exercises when all of a sudden these Iraqis turned up out of nowhere, with their hands in the air, saying they wanted to surrender. They had heard firing and thought it was the start of the war. . . There was nothing they [the British] could do other than send them back.”

UPDATE: I should have said — I don’t know if I really buy this. . .
