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.

Then silence.

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."
