Dead or Alive

Conventional wisdom seems to be that if we've managed to kill Saddam - and the news gets out to the the Iraqi military and the rest of the country - then the soldiers will lay down their arms and surrender. I'm not convinced. If the people mostly hate Saddam, but are still defending their country, then taking out Saddam would give them more, not less, reason to fight. Perhaps.
