No such command.

On Saddam's birthday last month, I did spot a very dirty military SUV with this finger-written on the back window:

Happy Birthday Saddam
You Punk!

No such command.

I think there is. When my husband used to deploy, it was always to ComMidEastFor. It basically covers the Middle East (the sea part of it, anyway).
