LOTS OF SURRENDERS: The Times

LOTS OF SURRENDERS: The Times reports, “The commander of Iraq’s 51st division and his top deputy surrendered to United States Marine forces today, according to American military officials”, in an article whose headline says, “Military Sees Indications That Other Division May Give Up“.

Meanwhile, “Hundreds of [other] Iraqis eagerly surrender“.

And on Tuesday, the French bought themselves a rare clue:

Liberation reported that Dominique Dord, a deputy from the majority UMP party, said during Tuesday’s assembly debate, “We would look really stupid if Iraqis applaud the arrival of Americans.”

Exactly.
