Note To US Troops: Next Time Check Under The Burqas
Next time check under the hood
U.S. troops perusing the Taliban cornered a bunch of the fearsome warriors in an Afghan village and then held off their final attack.
The U.S. military being the U.S. military correctly gave the women and children a chance to leave before finishing off the job. So what did the Taliban fighters do?
Well, they put on burqas of course, and slipped away with the civilians like women. By the time the troops moved in they were gone.
Got to give them credit. It was ingenious. A spur-of-the-moment reverse Trojan horse maneuver.
Next time fellas, at the risk of offending the women, check under the burqas first.
