The Marine & The Reporters

Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, Cokie Roberts, and a tough old U.S.
Marine Sergeant escort were all captured by terrorists in Iraq. The
leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one
last request before they were beheaded.

Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan so I'd like one last bowl full
of hot spicy chili."

The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the

Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die content."

Peter Jennings said, "I am Canadian, so I'd like to hear the song "O
Canada" one last time."

The leader nodded to a terrorist who had studied the Western world
and knew the music.

He returned with some rag-tag Musicians and played the anthem.

Jennings sighed and declared he could now die peacefully.

Cokie Roberts said, "I'm a reporter to the end. I want to take out
my tape recorder and describe the scene here and what's about to
happen. Maybe someday someone will hear it and know that I was on
the job till the end."

The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and
Roberts dictated some comments. She then said, "Now I can die

The leader turned and said, "And now, Mr. U.S. Marine, what is your
final wish?"

"Kick me in the rear," said the Marine.

"What?" asked the leader. "Will you mock us in your last hour?"

"No, I'm not kidding. I want you to kick me in the rear," insisted
the Marine. So the leader shoved him into the open, and kicked him
in the posterior.

The Marine went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled his 9mm
M9 pistol from inside his cammies, and shot the leader dead.

In the resulting confusion, he leapt to his knapsack, pulled out his
M4 carbine and sprayed the terrorists with gunfire. In a flash, all the
enemies were either dead or fleeing for their lives.

As the Marine was untying Rather, Jennings, and Roberts, they asked
him, "Why didn't you just shoot them in the beginning? Why did you
ask them to kick you in the posterior first?"

"What," replied the Marine, "and have you three ***holes report that
I was the aggressor!?

If you can't stand behind our troops,
try standing in front of them!
God Bless!
