A squad of Marines drove up the highway between Basra and Baghdad. They came upon an Iraqi soldier badly injured and unconscious. Nearby, on the opposite side of the road, was an American Marine in a similar state, but he was alert. As first aid was given to both men, they asked the injured Marine what happened. The Marine responded, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway. Coming south was a heavily armed Iraqi soldier." What happened then?" the corpsman asked. "I told him Saddam Hussein was a miserable piece of crap and then the Iraqi told me that Tom Daschle, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and Bill Clinton were miserable pieces of crap!" "What happened then?" the corpsman asked. "We were shaking hands when a truck hit us."
