      On my second roll I got "Operation Hidden Climax."
      Better than "Operation Early Climax" I suppose.

          Yeah...you will be affected by this war in multiple ways so of course you actually care about the subject. Those in power have no skin in the game, their lives wont change if we fight another war for nothing.

                      I thought the code names followed some sort of alphabetical pattern. Sort of like hurricane names.
                      Code:
                      As of 9/21/10:         As of 9/13/10:
                      College Hockey 6       College Football 0

                                The current POTUS had to be flogged into wearing a lapel pin, IIRC. Does that make him a patriot?
