interesting how others in world media see US troops....
"But they don't have their hair cuts 'high and tight', don't strut around like Americans (done by me) and are certainly not trying to speak with American accents. They are loving it with all the American kit, and you can't keep them out of the PX shop [US military duty-free shops]."

It's just another case of the civilian press not understanding the military.
The fact that our conventional guys are required to keep to grooming standards doesn't make them in any way similar to the SS, nor does the fact that they are often open and in the public eye while performing security patrols (what I figure he meant by "strutting"). And well, ever heard a Brit try to talk with an American accent? It's like listening to a drunken mobster, they just don't tend to do that well, so why would they even try?

Whhhatt oh Maary Porpins! info
ha-ha! not arf PJ, Jason Statham in the 'Transporter' has got to be the worst American accent since Dick van Dyke tried to be a cockney in Mary Poppins! priceless! Anyway dont be to perturbed about British News papers as they've always been a bit 'Jingoistic' when it comes to the UK forces. And after all a little bit of rivaly is good for keeping the "Edge", anyway lads whats it like being the second best fighting force in the world? (Te-He!)
