sticks and stones:
it's a slow news day: apparently Nicole Kidman is a 'beginner' and a 'rising star', not a 'legend'; and fighting in Afghanistan between Taliban and American forces has degenerated into name calling.
American forces opened the salvo:
"The Taliban are women! They're bitches! If they were real men, they'd stop hiding under their burkas and they'd come out and fight!"
The Taliban retorted lamely:
“The Americans are hiding in their trenches and refuse to come out to face the mujahedeen as the mujahedeen shell them, fire on them and cut roads off around them. Their defense is only to bomb by air.”
Score one for America! We are masters of smacktalk, our new fighting technique is unstoppable.
