Arkansas Traveler, Chuck Norris Found in Iraq
Excerpts from a marine's excellent letter:
Most Profound Man in Iraq - an unidentified farmer in a fairly remote area who, after being asked by Reconnaissance Marines (searching for Syrians) if he had seen any foreign fighters in the area replied "Yes, you."They should have asked for directions while they were at it. "Can I take this road to Baghdad?" "Don't know why you'd want to; they've already got one there!"
Best Chuck Norris Moment - 13 May. Bad Guys arrived at the government center in the small town of Kubaysah to kidnap the town mayor, since they have a problem with any form of government that does not include regular beheadings and women wearing burqahs. There were seven of them. As they brought the mayor out to put him in a pick-up truck to take him off to be beheaded (on video, as usual), one of the bad Guys put down his machinegun so that he could tie the mayor's hands. The mayor took the opportunity to pick up the machinegun and drill five of the Bad Guys. The other two ran away. One of the dead Bad Guys was on our top twenty wanted list. Like they say, you can't fight City Hall.Rodney Dangerfield would love this guy. "Man, my neighborhood was rough!" "HOW ROUGH WAS IT?" "It was so rough..."
