Funny Military Codenames

The trend in nicknaming operations is nothing new and has been around since WW1 times. However, the incidence of naming of US military operations has gone up considerably in recent times and its focus has shifted toward shaping domestic and international perceptions about the activities the particular operation understakes.

A whole list of code names like Operation Allah,Operation Brutus,Operation Cave Dweller is listed here.Take a look at Jon Stewart having a go at it as well. Soon they will run out of fancy names if the never ending war goes on perpetually.
