MILITARY NAMES

MILITARY NAMES Names are chosen to suggest aggression; Anything smacking of peace is for suppression. Soviet subs are Typhoons not Seabreezes. The USAF flies Eagles, not Robins And it’s a Tomcat, not a Tabby cat, Real men fly a Hornet not a Butterfly. The British prefer Harrier to Supporter. Native American names can include The Tomahawk but not the Prayer Bead, And the Apache but not the Micmac. No doubt a new aircraft carrier Could be called the Charles Bronson But not called the Oscar Wilde.
