In February 1991, during the Gulf war, I found myself standing on the Saudi-Kuwait border, watching British infantrymen taking in Iraqi prisoners who were slipping across no-man's land in their twos and threes, desperate to surrender. The British were well prepared: there were large stockpiles of bottled water, tents and waiting vehicles.
