A large group of Iraqi soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a
voice call from behind a sand dune:
"One United States Marine is better than ten Iraqis."
The Iraqi commander quickly sends ten of this best soldiers over the
dune, whereupon a gun battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes,
The voice then calls out:
"One United States Marine is better than one hundred Iraqis!"
Furious, the Iraqi commander sends his next best 100 troops over the
dune and instantly a huge firefight commences. After 10 minutes of battle,
The American voice calls out again:
"One United States Marine is better than one thousand Iraqis!"
The enraged Iraqi commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them
across the dune.
Cannons, rockets and machine guns ring out as a huge battle is fought.
Eventually one wounded Iraqi soldier crawls back over the dune
and with his dying breath tells his commander:
"Don't send anymore men!
It's a trap!
There's TWO of them!"
