DAB
 n.— «Whether this move will calm the capital, much less help stabilize Iraqi politics, depends in part on what the troops and MPs end up doing. Will they just “drive around Baghdad” (the term even has a jaundiced acronym, “DAB”) to announce their “presence”? Or will they get in the middle of fights, try to break them up, even take sides?» —“False Consciousness About Iraq” by Fred Kaplan Slate July 26, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
