  • Osama’s code name sparks protest...

    Really? All the crap going on in the world and the PC Peeps are getting miffed by this?

    Shouldn't they be hiring the ACLU to file suit against little league baseball teams or something?

    I think using the code name "Geronimo" was also in bad taste. I would have used the name "Kunta Kinte". I don't think anyone would've been offended by that name.

            Yup. If you're offended in this country, suck it up.

            If your human/civil rights are violated or your 'people' are downtrodden as the result of heinous behavior that rises to the criminal level THEN feel free to plead your case to the world. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

              1. Not really relevant, it was a nickname by which his own people and relatives refer to him. He was known by other names too. "Apache" is not the tribe's name for themselves either, but it is what they are called.
              2. The Apache are a group of nations, not a single tribe. And they and his descendants are among the "whiners".
              3. Within that context it is a complement of a warrior mindset.

              Anyway, I was originally thinking I would share some insight so people may understand why it's seen as an issue, but I will just shut the heck up.

                  ^^ Operation Head shot... I like it! lol But someone may have been able to de-code that!

                  It kinda goes back and forth on if it was the name of the operation or the code name for bin Laden himself. It was both, given that they said "...Geronimo EKIA". If they had used a different code name, like say the report had been: "The president and top aides were gathered in the White House situation room to monitor the progress of the operation Sunday afternoon when the message "Ronald Reagan EKIA" -- indicating that bin Laden had been killed in action -- was called in from Pakistan." You know threads would be popping up all over this forum! lol

                    When I saw the headline that people were mad, I thought they had used some code name like "Mr. HappyFunNiceMan". I don't see why people are so bent out of shape over this.

                      Years ago, there was a big thing about Washington being named Redskins. Jack Kent Cooke was the owner at the time, and he said about the protesters, "They can buy the team from me and call it whatever they want."

                        I don't think the President named that place!

                              Central Michigan University teams are called the Chippewas. They haven't had to change it because the Chippewa Tribe in their area likes the exposure the nickname gives them (and their casinos).
