What a pity the Afghans didn't appreciate his sense of humor. They probably thought he'd come with his big gun to murder their wives and kids, just like all the other invaders of their country.
If only they'd taken time to listen to a few of his jokes, it might all have been so different.

Probably too much was lost in translation, so funny guy from funny to dead. lol. I speak two languages and know exactly how that goes. Ohh well, dude should have kept his a$$ at home. Maybe investigating 911.
