Christmas 2008: Why It Did Not Happen Now

Arab Tribesman: **Arabic**

Translator: He says some camelmen came across the border and are
eating his sheep's grass.

Field Analyst: I better alert the task force. (Grabs Radio) Task
Force, this is ground. Got some fast movers coming across my grid.

Task Force: Roger, sending up a Predator UAV now.

(In Task Force HQ - Giant TV screen shows Predator feed)

Analyst 1: Sir, looks like we got a camel convoy coming across the Euphrates
Commander: Better send a ground assault force.

(Later an assault force meets up with the convoy)

Soldier 1: Halt, identify yourself.

Wise Man: We are Wise Men from the East.

Soldier 2: What are you doing here?

Wise Man: We are on our way to meet our Savior.

Soldier 1: Better get on the horn, we got some Mahdi freaks. What do
you have here?

Wise Man: Gold, frankincense, and myrrh

Soldier 2: Where are you going with these goods?

Wise Man: To Bethlehem.

Solider 1: (On the radio) Command, we got some Iranian Mahdits on
their way to give supplies to Palestinians. Request orders.

Radio: Detain them.
