    The US embassy/consulates in Pakistan are protected by a detachment of Marines. They're the second layer of security. First being the Private Security Guards.

    Should restrict militrary personel to 2 units only ....
    Just too many ppl

    There should be no need for anymore units , 2 stay at door if there is distubance they close the door and embassy is closed for business

    Also road side barracks and unnesessary traffic hinderence should be removed , and US embassy should be encouraged to grow some tall tree on the outside a natrual barrier

    they are Marines
    don't be deluded by their age. if still in doubt then look up their training regime.

    and countries like Pakistan due to on going terrorism will have much more emphasis on such deployment than countries in Western Europe.

    I dont know why marines have been popularized in american media. They are not any more special than army, NG, navy or airforce.

    Their "coveted" dress blues are quite ugly to be honest.
