It's a brave new world

What to say?

Firefighters work on putting out a fire at a seven-story building after a small private plane crashed
into a building that houses the Internal Revenue Service in Austin, Texas on Thursday Feb. 18, 2010.

They hate us for our freedom?

Meanwhile as the War on Terra (aka the Project for the New American Century) continues—you've heard it:

            As of Sept. 1, "Operation Iraqi Freedom" becomes "Operation New Dawn."

The Ministry of Truth explained that the rebranding "presents opportunities to synchronize strategic communication initiatives, reinforce our commitment to honor the Security Agreement, and recognize our evolving relationship with the Government of Iraq."

Nothing that Xe Services LLC (formerly known as "Blackwater") couldn't handle, I am sure.

I wonder whether Richard Lowry's book was any inspiration for the new name.

  1. Perhaps the inspiration was alternate time line American war film RED DAWN, directed and co-written by John Milius and written by Kevin Reynolds, in the 80's:

    "The story follows a group of American high school students who resist their foreign occupiers through guerrilla warfare and call themselves the Wolverines, after their high school mascot."

    The operation to capture former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was named Operation Red Dawn and its targets were dubbed Wolverine-1 and Wolverine-2.

    - Red Dawn was the first movie in film history to be released in the US with a Motion Picture Association of America PG-13 rating.

    - At the time it was released, Red Dawn was considered the most violent film by the Guinness Book of Records and The National Coalition on Television Violence, with a rate of 134 acts of violence per hour, or 2.23 per minute.

    - National Review Online has named the film #15 in its list of 'The Best Conservative Movies'.

  2. And now this:

    "Red Dawn" will be redone.

    Screenwriter Carl Ellsworth has been hired to recraft the ultimate homeland invasion story about a new generation of besieged high schoolers.

    "The tone is going to be very intense, very much keeping in mind the post-9/11 world that we're in," says Ellsworth, who was 11 when the original was released. "As 'Red Dawn' scared the heck out of people in 1984, we feel that the world is kind of already filled with a lot of paranoia and unease, so why not scare the hell out of people again?"
