The dead Iraqi and the American soldier who lived to tell the tale

This could’ve been a true story…

A squad of American soldiers was patrolling along the Iraqi border. To their surprise, they found the badly mangled dead body of an Iraqi soldier in a ditch along the road.

A short distance up the road, they found a badly mangled American soldier in a ditch on the other side of the road, who was still barely alive. They ran to him, cradled his blood-covered head and asked him what had happened.

“Well,” he whispered, “I was walking down this road, armed to the teeth. I came across this heavily armed Iraqi border guard. I looked him right in the eye and shouted, “Saddam Hussein is an unprincipled, lying bastard!”

He looked me right in the eye and shouted back, “Barack Obama is an unprincipled, lying bastard!”

“We were standing there shaking hands when the truck hit us.”

From Keep and Bear Arms, I changed it slightly to make it more current.
