Combat hazards

A platoon of soldiers was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious.

On the opposite side of the road was an Australian 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 Australian what had happened.

The soldier reported, "I was heavily armed and 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 Kevin Rudd is a bureaucratic, Good-for-nothing, left wing labor dickhead who knows bugger all about running the 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 Julia Gillard!"

"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, laughing, shaking hands, when a fucking truck hit us."

You know, I think that might be a true story.
Another great story on the news this morning. An Aussie soldier, with two AK-47 upper-body wounds, tied himself between the bull-bar and radiator of a retreating vehicle.
He didn't want to fall off if he fainted from blood-loss and continued firing at the Taliban during the retreat.

Magnificent.

Skeeter - that sounds like a Fiat or Alfa Romeo.....

A retreating vehicle doesn't normally go in reverse, unless it has multiple reverse gears.

Hi, Kae. Been totally busy with things economic.

When's the next piss-up?

Piss up?
I tried to organise one last month but had no takers.

Maybe early to mid Nov?
