Common Ground

A platoon of soldiers was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi insurgent, badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American soldier in a similar but less serious state.
The soldier was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the Platoon Leader asked the injured American what had happened.
The soldier reported, "Well sir, I was moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent." We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved."
"He yelled back that Bush is a bureaucratic, good-for-nothing, right wing dickhead who doesn't know shit about running a country."
"So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian!" He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Condoleeza Rice!"
"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, laughing, shaking hands, when a fucking truck hit us."
