An Anecdote of our Times
A few British and American paratroopers traning met some Iraqi Soldiers waving a white flag asking to surrender.

The surrendering soldiers were then sent back to the Iraqis.
I guess it is true that Iraq, a former French colony, has more in common with France then we had first thought.
