Humpty Dumpty calls it like he sees it*

– Wiccapundit

The AP reports that Operation Iraqi Freedom will be renamed.  Really.

The new name?  Operation New Hope Dawn.  Really.  (Thanks to commenter James S. for the correction.  🙂 Hope, Dawn, yadda yadda yadda.  D’oh!)

It appears that the secret to marketing (and liberal politics) is simply rebranding.  You simply can’t make up stuff like this.

A very funny take on this comes from Delta Bravo Sierra.

A more serious, thoughtful entry comes from David Bellavia.

Whatever you think of the war, your thoughts for the warriors should be solemn and respectful.

*`When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’  `The question is,’ said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.’  `The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master — that’s all.’ Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass.

    Actually, it’s Operation New Dawn. Coincidentally the same name used for the first battle for Falluja.

    Oops, I should have caught that. I guess the names all run together after awhile: Hope, Change, New, Dawn, etc. I’m correcting it straightaway. Thanks for the clue-by-four. 🙂

  3. James S. says:

    I don’t really care about the name. I’m just trying to figure out why these guys see a need to rename everything. What’s the point? They aren’t fooling anyone. If it’s because he wants to claim the final stages he may regret it the way he handles things.

    Perhaps they’ll just declare victory and leave. If they say it’s so, it must be so, right? I guess you can call a spade a spade, or you can call it a f***ing shovel.
