"HUNDREDS OF IRAQIS EAGERLY SURRENDER:" Well, yeah. We've had our learning curve, and they've had theirs. And what they learned last time was that surrendering wasn't so bad, while fighting was pretty damned lethal.
Then again, other people seem to have figured out what's going on, too:
In the town of Safwan, Iraqi civilians eagerly greeted the 1st Marine Division.
One little boy, who had chocolate melted all over his face after a soldier gave him some treats from his ration kit, kept pointing at the sky, saying “Ameriki, Ameriki.”
This is the "peace" movement's worst nightmare, isn't it?
