The Bush Administration is counting on Iraqi soldiers surrendering as soon as the war starts. But maybe not, if they’ve been told about this.
“The documentary alleges that U.S. troops watched as opposition Northern Alliance troops killed between 1,500 and 3,000 Taliban prisoners in November last year – an allegation flatly rejected by the U.S. government.”
As well as the problem of the prisoners that will be held indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay, while we claim they are not POWs.
So the Iraqi soldiers have pretty good reasons to be afraid to surrender to Americans. Gosh, I KNEW there was a reason we shouldn’t have denied all rights to Afghan prisoners.
