Saddam Fought Back!...

Wait a minute! All those reports of Saddam giving up without a fight are false. It seems he was yanked out of his gopher hole in a mood. Was he swinging his fists? No. Was he emptying his pistol? No. Looks like he came out... spitting. Still unofficial, but Time reports that Saddam spat on one of the U.S. Soldiers who flushed him from his pit, to which the soldier promptly cold-cocked Saddam. Update: The Marine Reservist in our office, who was on the front lines in Baghdad, tells me of an incident in which an irate Iraqi spat on him. Rather than slugging the Iraqi he simply leveled his sidearm at him... the spitor got the message and promptly went about his business.
