The Marine and the Insurgent
A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Barsa when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state.
The Marine was conscious and alert and after first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the Marine what had happened.
The Marine reported, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was that heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that 'Saddam Hussein is a miserable, lowlife scumbag!' He then yelled back that 'Senator Ted Kennedy is a good for nothing, fat, left wing liberal drunken murderer!' So I yelled back that 'Osama bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid mean spirited woman!' He retaliated by yelling 'Oh yeah? well so does Hillary Clinton!' And then, there we were standing in the middle of the road shaking hands, when a truck hit us."
