Perspective From the Front

From a letter from a Marine stationed at Al Assad:

Our counter-battery/mortar fire is quicker than hell. Four rounds from each weapons system, 81's and 155's.Ouch, that's gotta hurt on the receiving end. Too bad, so sad for Hadji. Should've picked another damn neighborhood to screw with, not mine.

I intend no disrespect to our fine soldiers, but perhaps a little cultural perspective would be in order here. Could it be that the sentiments in the last line would more aptly be expressed by "Hadji?"
