We wouldn't want to offend anyone now would we. Especially if you're going to be waging a war.

I've looked though hundreds of these and still haven't seen this one, honoring the man who helped make it all possible; Operation Put Some Ice On It. Or how about one that no liberal can argue with as it cannot be trumped; Operation It's For The Children.

Received this via email:

Dear Free Republic,

I have been a lurker for a couple of years. I've never been able to completely figure out how this forum works, so I send this e-mail. Pleae forward it, if you think it is relevant or useful.

I used to be a police officer in Hannibal, Missouri. I was born a woodsie, and our family hunted to survive. I was able to put my tracking skills to work when we were searching for suspects. Our guys called it "bird dogging." I've been thinking that would be a good name for this war, Operation Bird Dog. The bird is the eagle, and heaven knows we have some K-9's who have been real heroes lately. Bird dog can be either a noun or a verb and also reflects a "Texan" attitude. I think is easier than Operation Infinite Justice, which we are already calling "OJ."

Thanks,
[name redacted]

PS. My check is in the mail.

Thanks very much. Regards, Jim Robinson

My personal favorite so far, but how about a slight modification: Operation Screamin' Eagle. Maybe Registered can work his magic and do the graphics for that one.

From all the back tracking from what was said before and what is being said now, it looks like it might be named Operation Pussyfoot.

"Lets Roll" is my favorite.

Actually, I liked it when code names were chosen at random. The words then took on their own meaning, based on what happened. Also, the names themselves did not divulge information to the enemy. They called it the "Manhattan Project", not the "Atom Bomb Project". I would like to see it called "Operation Teakettle" or "Operation Briar Rose" or some such thing. I don't like this business of naming wars for PR.

Failing that, I would not mind dusting off the "Manhattan Project" and giving it another run. Would scare the heck out of people, that would.
