What a Platoon of Taliban Did to a Lone Marine…


Atrocities Committed on a Lone Marine by the Taliban…

survivalist martial artA platoon of Taliban were on patrol one day, when they spotted a lone marine standing on a large boulder.

“Quick!” shouted Mohammad to two of his jihadists, “There’s only one devil dog, so go kill him!”
The two soldiers ran for the boulder, yelling threats and shooting their rifles in the air.
The marine jumped off the boulder and disappeared from view.
The two Taliban ran behind the boulder, and suddenly the air was filled with screams and gunfire. Then there was silence.
“You five,” commanded Mohammad, “Go find out what happened!”
The five Taliban ran to the boulder, yelling that God was with them and shooting their rifles in the air. They circled behind the boulder, and suddenly the air was filled with screams and gunfire. Then there was silence.
Mohammad turned to the rest of his command and screamed, “Go find out what happened!”
The Jihadists all yelled that they were ready to go to Paradise and shot their rifles in the air and charged the boulder. They ran around behind the boulder, and suddenly the air was filled with screams and gunfire.Then there was silence.
Mohammad pulled out his radio and started to call for more troops when a lone Taliiban soldier crawled out from behind the boulder. He was beaten half to death, bayoneted several times, had many bullet wounds, and was near death, but he managed to call out to Mohammad… “There were two of them!”

Okay, no booing, this is a good one. And if you want to find out why the marines are so tough, maybe even try to be tough like them yourself,  then head over to ‘Fixing MCMAP.’

    Sorry, but I just gotta say this. Opening sentence… “A platoon of the Taliban WAS on patrol…” not “WERE on patrol.” “Platoon” is a singular entity. Despite the fact that many people make up a platoon, it is a single platoon that is the subject of the sentence.

    The British have popularized this particular form of bad English and it is also beginning to infect American journalism but it is entirely incorrect. Brits will say, for example, “Jaguar WERE introducing a new car.” Well, just how many Jaguar automobile companies are they talking about? Eleven? One hundred and thirty four? Or one?

    It can be correctly said that “the PEOPLE of Jaguar WERE introducing a new car,” but only when “people” is the subject can it be correctly referenced in the plural.

    Note to the world – for crying out loud, PLEASE stop using the plural form to describe a singular entity. We are destroying our own language.

    Otherwise a great article! Okay, off my high horse for now! 🙂
