What's In a Name?

An earlier post referred to US "military operations against ISIS" rather than its official name, "Operation Enduring Resolve" which is a pretty honest statement about what Obama is leading America into.  Despite the honesty the name still sounds pretty hokey to me insofar as it suggests that the operation is somehow highly desirable. 

An even better and equally honest name is Operation Fool Me Twice which was suggested as an entry to the Name That Operation contest in the Washington Post a while back. 

I'll stick with that one.
