Better Than The Movie

People in my inbox love the details:

My brother and I sat watching the news of Saddam’s capture, and we

couldn’t help but grin at the title of the operation: “Operation Red

Dawn.” We were further elated when the announcement was made that the

objectives were called “Wolverine One” and “Wolverine Two.” I would bet

that an officer in his late twenties or early thirties named the

operation after the 1984 Patrick Swayze/Charlie Sheen movie about the

communist invasion of the U.S. “Wolverines!”
