A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand dune.
“One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban soldiers.”
The commander quickly sends ten of his best soldiers over the dune, and a gun-battle breaks out that continues for a few minutes.
Then silence ensues and a voice calls out: “One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban soldiers.”
Furious, the commander sends his next best one hundred troops over the dune and instantly a huge gunfight commences.
After ten minutes of intense fighting, again silence follows.
The Texan’s voice calls out again: “One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban.”
The enraged commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them across the dune.
Cannons, rockets and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought. Then quiet.
Eventually 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.”
