Spot the errors

Can you spot the mistakes in this photo?
This is a picture that Howard Kaloogian, a conservative Republican candidate in San Diego's upcoming congressional special election to replace disgraced GOPer Duke Cunningham, has placed on his Web site. It is billed as a photo that Kaloogian and his party took on a recent trip to Iraq. Here's his provocative caption:
We took this photo of dowtown Baghdad while we were in Iraq. Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it - in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism.
OK. But look very carefully at this picture. Notice anything unusual? Just like those puzzles they used to run in the Sunday comics section, see how many, um, mistakes you can spot in the photo.
When you're done, read this and also this. (But don't peek until you're done!)
The Internet detectives strike again!
Iraq war vets, share your knowledge of Iraq's large cities with us for extra credit.
Here's a hint: no cops or soldiers on the streets.
