This very depressing article about Iraq contains a very depressing retronym

An unattended car bomb exploded in western Baghdad as an American convoy passed by, injuring three Iraqis and damaging nearby shops. In the northern city of Tikrit, Mr. Hussein's hometown, a suicide car bomb detonated at an Iraqi army checkpoint, wounding seven Iraqi soldiers and two civilians.

It is not good news when Edward Wong of the New York Times feels the need to specify that a bomber did not choose to die in order to kill.
