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)

Operation Proud Badger. And the cute little badger is holding up his fist, black panther-style.

swiss army knife - attack using various, multi-faceted "non-traditional" means. Blogs, television ads, drugs ...etc

I probably should have reversed the order of my word choice for maximum effectivness, no?
