Miscommunication

A squad of American soldiers was patrolling along the Iraqi
border. To their surprise, they found the badly mangled dead
body of an Iraqi soldier in a ditch along the road. A short
distance up the road, they found a badly mangled American
soldier in a ditch on the other side of the road, who was still
barely alive. They ran to him, cradled his blood-covered head
and asked him what had happened.

“Well,” he whispered, “I was walking down this road, armed to
the teeth. I came across this heavily armed Iraqi border guard.
I looked him right in the eye and shouted, ‘Saddam Hussein is an
unprincipled, lying piece of trash!’ He looked me right in the
eye and shouted back, ‘Bill Clinton is an unprincipled, lying
piece of trash too!’ We were standing there shaking hands when
the truck hit us.”
