Y'know, I'm glad they were defeated and all (I know I wouldn't want Sodamn Insane in charge of a huge chunk of earth's oil supply), but I really do feel sorry for the Iraqi tankers. Their infantry didn't have it too bad--asides from a bit of sleep deprivation from the bombing campaign--but the tankers? Talk about a shitty place to get caught in; you can't surrender because you're three miles from the guys who will kill you when they take the shot, and you can't run because an A-10 will peg you if you try. And worst of all, most of the poor bastards were drafted! Very sad story.

Anyways, glad to see this photo on Dev. It's a very poignant, meaningful image.

A very overlooked war, at that. Most of those drafted were the undesired Shi'ite Muslims of whom Saddam deliberately threw into the fray as cannon fodder, placing them at the most vulnerable of positions on the front lines. Also, after the Iraqis had gotten a taste of American precision weapons and the futility of attempting the shelter from them, a lot of the tankers simply abandoned their tanks and fled the scene.
Can't really blame them; how else are you gonna survive something you literally can't fight against nor hide from using ground-based vehicles. And in the eyes of us Americans, it's been viewed as the "Video Game War".
