Default "We surrender!!"

From the Chicago Sun-Times

Quote:
12 Iraqis throw in towel prematurely

March 10, 2003

They surrendered without a fight.

A dozen Iraqi soldiers made their way through the trenches separating them from British troops and marched in with their hands up.

"They had heard firing and thought it was the start of the war," a British army source told England's Sunday Mirror newspaper.

The soldiers, paratroopers from the 16th Air Assault Brigade, were testing mortars and artillery last week in Kuwait, near the Iraq border, when they witnessed the premature surrender.

The paratroopers explained to the Iraqis they were not firing at them, and told them it was too early to lay down their arms. The Iraqis were ordered back home.

"The British guys on the front line could not believe what was happening," the source said.

Sun-Times staff reports
Geez, they could at least wait until the war starts.... silly Iraqis...

They can talk the talk but when it comes to walkin the walk, they just throw up they're hands and give up.

Hey, I don't blame them - would you want to take a bullet for a mass-murdering dictator like Saddam? Let'em all give up, safer for our boys and we get to hook the big fish that much sooner...
