Wolverines!

As a Corner reader caught earlier via K-Lo, somebody in Iraq is obviously a fan of the most right-wing movie to come out of Hollywood in the 1980s: Red Dawn. From the Wash Post: “Sanchez said U.S. forces launched ‘Operation Red Dawn’ to capture Hussein after receiving information Saturday morning that he was hiding at one of the two locations, dubbed Wolverine I and Wolverine II.” For the uninitiated, the “Wolverines” in Red Dawn are American guerillas who fight Soviet invaders in Colorado.
