What's in a Name? 

My thoughts: Operation Arab Solidarity:

ISRAEL is trying to put a name to the war it waged against Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas last year, but not without some infighting. [...]

Asked overnight by Israel's YNet news website to offer a name of their own, readers came up with suggestions such as "Operation Failure", "The Idiotic War", "The Big Shame" and "Amir Peretz's Final War". [...]

A government-appointed commission investigating the war announced today it would publish preliminary findings next month that will draw conclusions about how the war was handled by Mr Peretz, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and the chief of the armed forces at the time, Dan Halutz, who has since resigned.
