A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune say, "One Marine is better than ten Taliban."
The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.
The voice then calls out, "One Marine is better than a hundred Taliban soldiers."
Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.
The Marine voice calls out, "One Marine is better than a thousand Taliban."
The enraged Taliban commander musters a thousand fighters and sends them over the dune. Cannon fire, rocket blasts, and machine gun fire rings out as a huge battle rages.
Finally one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, it's a trap. There are two of them."
