The Mother of all Surrenders: Britain's Sunday Mirror is reporting that the Iraqis are trying to get a head start on the imminent war -- by crossing the Kuwaiti border and attempting to surrender to British troops.
The motley band of a dozen troops waved the white flag as British paratroopers tested their weapons during a routine exercise.
The stunned Paras from 16 Air Assault Brigade were forced to tell the Iraqis they were not firing at them, and ordered them back to their home country telling them it was too early to surrender.
Now, later, whenever. And to think, the Iraqi soldiers voted for Saddam.
