Name that war: Norman Solomon writes about the pretentious names given to recent military adventures: "Just Cause" in Panama (just 'cause we can); "Desert Storm", aka Gulf War I; and "Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan, where they have been enduring freedom for over a year now. So while we try to stop Gulf War II, you can bet that W's PR folks (aka the administration) are hard at work coming up with a name for it. Here are some suggestions for them:
  • Operation Oily Residue
  • Operation Infinite Deception
  • Operation Arrogant Imperialism
  • Operation Oedipal Redemption
  • Operation Tolerating Liberty

Any suggestions from the audience?
