Iraq using guerrilla warfare tactics

A US military spokesman says that Iraqi troops are using "ruses" to kill U.S. troops invading their country, on one occasion dressing as civilians to ambush them. In one incident an apparent surrender was followed by artillery fire. "There are a number of incidents occurring to the rear of the main combat forces"...

What did they expect? Enemy troops to arrange themselves in nice, neat lines just perfect for bombing or strafing? It was obvious that the Iraqi army would do this.

If anyone can be an enemy, then every Iraqi is a potential target... and when non-combattants get caught in the crossfire, that won't win any Iraqi hearts and minds... Ordinary Iraqi citizens are much more likely to be dragged into this conflict, and may very well become motivated to fight as guerrillas themselves.
