Can We Surrender Yet?

Yesterday a group of British soldiers were conducting a training exercise in Kuwait, near the Iraq border, when a group of Iraqi soldiers approached them with their hands upraised, asking to surrender. The Sunday Mirror reports that the Iraqis heard firing and thought the war had started. The stunned British troops “ordered them back to their home country telling them it was too early to surrender.” The British expressed sympathy for the poorly armed, unfed and ill-clad Iraqis but explained that they could not accept their surrender until the war begins.
