Derogatory term of U.S Army origin during the Gulf War.
Used to denote someone from the Iran/Iraq desert region.
Not often used as it is offensive to both the People of the Persian region as well as the African-American soldiers sent there.
'Dunecoon' is a depreciated term.
'Towel head' and 'Camel Jockey' are perfecly good subsitutes.
-- 'Three Kings' David O'Russell 1999
