"No-fly" zones 

Hmmm. Its interesting how language changes.
"No-fly zones" in Iraq used to refer to the areas in northern and southern Iraq where Saddam's helicopters and planes were not allowed to fly because they would be shot down by American and British planes.
Today, the term "no-fly zone" in Iraq refers to areas or routes where U.S. helicopters do not dare to fly anymore for fear of being shot down by Iraqi insurgents.
