One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

Husky.

Torch.

Anvil.

Overlord.

Olympic.

Linebacker.

Reforger.

Rolling Thunder.

These are the names we used to give our military operations. Forceful names. Decisive names. Military names. OK, so Operation Olympic got called off — but only because we’d already nuked the crap out of a couple Japanese cities. After that, an actual invasion just seemed so over the top.

So now comes word that US Marines (and our Afghan allies) are finding the fight unexpectedly tough in Marjah. One report even says they’re “bogged down.”

The name of the operation: “Togetherness.”

‘Nuff said.
