Operation X: Obama to Let American People Name the Military Action in Syria (SPOOF)
Desperate to sway a war-weary American public to support a strike in Syria, U.S. President Barack Obama has decided on an unusual path towards building a national consensus for military action.
On Monday, the President abruptly interrupted a meeting with his national security team at the White House to go for a walk in the Rose Garden with Bo, the Obama family’s dog.
Following a heated exchange with the First Dog, Obama returned to his national security aides and announced that he would allow the citizens of the United States to decide on the name of the military operation – assuming there is one.
By actively involving the American public, Obama hopes to gain some measure of political legitimacy to launch an attack on Syrian targets.
Obama ordered that the top ten proposed names be declassified and prepared for public release. An unidentified senior Defense Department official with an axe to grind, and a song in his heart, leaked the list to the international press:
1) Operation Velvet Fist
2) Operation September Rain (month to be changed depending on actual date of operation)
3) Operation Rock the Casbah
4) Operation Stimulus 3.0
5) Operation Tickle Me Silly
6) Operation Hem and Haw
7) Operation Congressional Smack Down
8) Operation Jumpin’ Jack Flash (it’s a gas, gas, gas)
9) Operation Waltzing Damascus
10) Operation Blue Eyes
