MORE FUN PRODUCT NAMING: Mac has its OS X Felines (Tiger, Panther, etc.). The Pentagon has its Blades. In Iraq, Operation Scimitar began last week. Scimitar©! Fancy! It’s the 4th in the Summer 2005 Anti-Insurgency Series™, Spear©, Dagger©, and Sword© being its predecessors. One would think “Saber” would have been a more consistent choice. Army brass must be expecting BIG numbers out of…SCIMITAR!
Guys, here’s some names for future offensives, no charge:
• Harpoon (Persian Gulf-ish)
• Excalibur (joint thrust, with the British forces)
• Switchblade (surprise attack)
• Plastic Knife (nobody gets hurt)
