i don't think that's really propaganda. it's quite possible that the thousands of iraqis did indeed surrender willingly. what the general said doesn't really contradict that.

should he have said, "we have two thousands prisoners of war", or "we found two thousand prisoners of war"... what word is more appropriate than "captured"?

when enemy soldiers surrender, you capture them, and they're POWs.

It was an easy capture.

There isn't much difference.



And it could have been a communication problem or a misquote that made this what it is. It isn't a big deal.

Is an elaborate dream?

Is it all you want it to be?

You ever play tag, your it?

He runs.

you chase.

You grab and catch him. That is captured.

He comes out of the woodwork with a white flag he is surrendering to you. You did not capture didily squat.

Plain and simple.

This is about semantics, not propaganda.

Doesn't seem like Iraq is putting up much of a fight, anyway.

Prisoners of war is simply what we have no matter how we 'aquired" them, ha ha. But its not that Iraq isnt putting up much of a fight, Saddam is just not worried about the welfare of his country, for now he wants to stay alive and in power, so he is concentraiting his forces where it matters, im sure the loyalty of his troups will be higher when our forces get towards the heart of the country.
