A Marine and an Iraqi insurgent
A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi insurgent, 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 as first aid was given to both men the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.
The Marine reported, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.
"I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved, and he yelled back that Ted Kennedy was a fat, good-for-nothing, left-wing liberal drunk who doesn't know how to drive.
"So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a mean-spirited hooker!
"He retaliated by yelling, ‘Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!'
"And there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us."
