    A Taliban Army Platoon was on patrol when the commander noticed a lone
    Marine standing on a hilltop in their area. The commander told two of his
    soldiers to go take out the Marine, so they dropped their packs and promptly
    ran as fast as they could toward him.

    Just before they got to the top, the Marine ran over the other side of the
    hill. The two soldiers followed. For the next few minutes there were bloody
    screams and dust flying in the air. Then as quick as it had started...it
    stopped and the Marine came back up on the hilltop. He brushed off his cammies..... .straightened his cap... crossed his arms...and stood there looking at the Taliban soldiers.

    The infuriated commander called for a squad to go get the Marine. They
    promptly ran as fast as they could toward him....just before they got to
    the top...the Marine ran over the other side of the hill. The squad
    followed...and for the next few minutes there were bloody screams and dust
    flying in the air. Then as quick as it had started...it stopped and the
    Marine came back up on the hilltop....brushed off his cammies...straightened his cap...crossed his arms and again stood there looking at the Taliban soldiers.

    The commander was 'really' hot now. He ordered the rest of his platoon to
    attack the Marine. Determined that Taliban soldiers were far superior to
    one 'lone' Marine...they had blood in their eyes as they ran up the hill.
    Just before they got to the top...the Marine again ran over the other side
    of the hill. The blood thirsty soldiers followed. For many minutes there were horrific screams and dust flying in the air. It continued and continued for quite a while.

    Finally...one 'lone' Taliban soldier came crawling back to the commander... all bloody and beat about the head and shoulders. His uniform was torn...cuts were all over his body. The commander demanded a report.

    Thelone soldier...trying to catch his breath...replied in a forceful and
    trembling voice: "Sir,...run, ...it's a trick. There are TWO of them!!"
