|Polls have been asking the public what they think of the Libyan 'Odyssey Dawn'....|
it really boiled down to the American obsession
with using names from pop culture to promote
their military ventures.
|First Gulf War||Op. Desert Storm||Op. Granby|
|Second Gulf War||Op. Iraqi Freedom||Op. Telic|
|2011's Air Assault on Libya||Op. Odyssey Dawn||Op. Ellamy|
|1999 Kosovo||Op. Noble Anvil||Op. Agricola|
|Falklands War||Op. Corporate|
the Fox poll has some amusing options for naming Odyssey Dawn: The
name of a Steven Seagal flick, a cruise liner and the name of Gwyneth
Paltrow's next child, as well as a work by the original Homer.
|The British names are purposefully obtuse (and chosen by computer).|
|Jeez! One day even history will be written by Holywood! ;P|
