A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they heard a voice call from behind a sand-dune say, “One Marine is better than ten Taliban.”
The Taliban commander quickly sent 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle broke out and continued for a few minutes, then only silence.
The voice then called out, “One Marine is better than a hundred Taliban soldiers.”
Furious, the Taliban commander sent his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commenced. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.
The Marine voice called out again, “One Marine is better than one thousand of the Taliban.” So, the enraged Taliban commander then mustered a thousand fighters and sent them over the dune. Cannon, rocket, and machine gun fire rang out as a huge battle is fought. Then only silence.
Finally, one wounded Taliban fighter crawled back over the dune and with his dying words told his commander, “Don’t send any more men, it’s a trap. There are two of them.”
