  1. I’ve heard this joke before.

    A large group of Isis fighters in Iraq are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand dune: “One Marine is better than ten Isis fighters”.
    The Isis commander quickly orders 10 of best men over the dune where a gun battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.
    The voice once again calls out: “One Marine is better than one hundred Isis ‘S.O.B.’s'”.
    Furious, the Isis 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 voice calls out again: “One Marine is better than a thousand Isis fighters.” The enraged Isis commander musters 1,000 fighters and sends them to the other side of the dune. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets and cannon fire ring out as a terrible fight is fought … then silence.
    Eventually, one badly wounded Isis 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’s two of them.”

  2. Good one, one of my favs.
    When I first heard that one, it was a comedian named Grady something or another, and it was Santa Anna’s fighters at the Alamo.
    No, I’m not THAT old…

  3. @OpenTheDoor: When I first heard that one, it was “one Confederate soldier” on top of a hill, so I wonder if that joke is as old as the Civil War.

    🙂

  4. The article indicates a lot about the state of intel our special forces are getting over there. I don’t know if it’s locals and we’re winning “hearts and minds” or if it’s superior technology that they can’t approach our people without risking their lives, but either way we seem to have an edge on the bad guys.

  5. @Vet, I heard it was the Alamo, like Burner.
    1836 vs. The War of Northern Aggression 1861, when the US Army illegally blockaded Southerners just trying to sell some cotton.
    Slavery was on the way out, why buy the African when you can rent an Irish for less and return him when the cold wind blows?
    Lincoln was bowing to Northern industrial interests, end of story.

  6. @OpenTheDoor (at 1:21 pm): BTW, do you know why there were 5000 Mexicans at the Battle of the Alamo?

    They could only get two pickup trucks started.

    😉

  7. @OpenTheDoor – did you mean the War of Southern Secession?

    The south wanted to divide the country, end of story.

  8. Since they died without engaging the “enemy”, they don’t get their virgins, just Helen Thomas one at a time, hopping from bed to bed–Heaven’s goat got the night off.

  9. This one I love:
    Iranian Radar Operator to US Fighter Pilot
    US Aircraft, you are in Iranian Air space, leave immediately!
    US Pilot. I am in International air space buddy. Check your charts.
    Iranian R.O. You are in Iranian air space, Leave immediately or you will be visited by two Iranian jets and shot down! Do you read?
    Pause.
    US Pilot: Send them on up asshole. I’ll wait.
    Silence.

  10. There was a Brit sniper that killed 10 Hajis with a single bullet not to long ago. He shot the one wearing the explosives.

  11. @.45-70, you mean like California today?
    There was no law preventing it then, just as there is nothing to keep Texas from seceding today either.
    The industrialists were using the pliable government to do their bidding and stopping legal international commerce. The thieves up in Massachusetts got the government to do their bidding, it caused a war they didn’t expect.
    You can believe the history written by Yankees, or you can open your mind to the real $tory.
    FYI, I am not a true Southerner, my grandfather was an immigrant, my father was a Yankee. The only skin I have in the story is understanding the truth.
    Funny enough, read up on Shay’s Rebellion, a mini civil war in it’s own right, 75 years prior.
    Caused by the same reasons, merchants using the government, to steal from the farmers.

    “I have been greatly abused, have been obliged to do more than my part in the war, been loaded with class rates, town rates, province rates, Continental rates and all rates … been pulled and hauled by sheriffs, constables and collectors, and had my cattle sold for less than they were worth … The great men are going to get all we have and I think it is time for us to rise and put a stop to it, and have no more courts, nor sheriffs, nor collectors nor lawyers.” Shay’s complainant 1786
    Sound kinda familiar Amos?

  12. @openTheDoor – ***Sound kinda familiar Amos?***

    Who is Amos?

    I’ve read about Shay’s Rebellion. A bunch of anarchists trying to overthrow the gov’t.

    As for California and Texas…apples/oranges. There are other parts of the country that want to divide. Eastern Wash/Oregon, eastern utah/western colo, eastern colo/western kansas, etc.

    As far as i know, texas has never avered they want to….even though it is their constitution.

    They are thee only state where it is legal, and was put in their constitution to make it possible/palatable to become a state.

    I chuckle every time i hear about california secession.

    Say what you want…i wont be a part of this thread hi-jacking any more.

    Sure would like to know who Amos is, though.
