There's a movie called JARHEAD coming in theaters in the US soon. The title made me laugh, it reminded me of a conversation I had with a US soldier in Iraq. I was telling him how I think that marines are always ready to shoot and how when you are around them you should be really careful what you do otherwise they might feel threatened and start shooting. I was thinking about the last time the US troops were here and how they shot a few civilians in unclear circumstances. He told me never to call a marine a Jarhead -he was not a marine himself-.

According to the people in one of theYahoo! military chat rooms, a Jarhead is a marine but they don't like to be called jarheards, I wonder why...!!!
