block party
 n.— «In a way, the locals have, in casual meetings with the Coalition forces, learned to embrace them. During their cordon and search missions, the Soldiers commonly refer to the meetings as “block parties.” It’s not uncommon for the locals to ask Soldiers and Iraqi National Police officers to come in and have some tea.» —“Security in Al-Doura Getting Better” by Kap Kim in Baghdad, Iraq Student Operated Press Feb. 23, 2007.
