A large group of Taliban soldiers is moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune, "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 gunfight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.
The Marine voice calls out, "One Marine is better than one thousand Taliban." The enraged Taliban commander musters a thousand fighters and sends them over the dune. Cannon, rocket, and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought. 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's two of them!!!"
