Iraqi children in a rural district in Mosul, 400 kilometers north of Baghdad, stand close to the tail of a bomb-like object buried in the mud in their front yard as US Army, 1-5 Infantry soldiers attend their family’s request for help. This and six other projectiles landed near their home days ago without exploding and will be inspected by Army engineers.(AFP/Cris Bouroncle)
Yes. It’s a “bomb-like object”. And if it or one of the other six had gone off or hit one of the kids they would have become “collateral damage” or “insurgents” depending on how bad the rest of the war news had gone that day.
