At the moment, it's worse than that.  If you park your phalanx on a hill
or river or something, the AI attacks it with its defense units:
phalanxes, pikemen, etc.  Next turn, my unit can waltz in for free. 
This means that the best-defended computer-controlled city falls pretty
easily.  I remember it being harder -- the AI would at least keep a
last-ditch unit -- but that might be the revisionist voice in my head

I'd vote for upping the priority on this, now that there is viable AI
diplomacy (yay!)
