Don’t look now Obama, but ‘Inherent Resolve’ is being roundly mocked [pic]


After all this time — a name.
A senior military source says the name of the operation in Iraq and Syria is…
"Inherent Resolve"

— Bret Baier (@BretBaier) October 15, 2014

Snicker. Surely Bret Baier is just making a funny, right? Nope!

Oh good Lord RT @michellemalkin: NOT a parody. RT @thejointstaff Ongoing actions in Iraq & Syria designated as Operation Inherent Resolve.

— Kemberlee Kaye (@KemberleeKaye) October 15, 2014

No, for real. As Twitchy reported, this is happening:

Ongoing actions in Iraq & Syria designated as Operation Inherent Resolve.

— The Joint Staff (@thejointstaff) October 15, 2014

Good grief.

What do YOU think about the new US operation name "Inherent Resolve"? (for the operation in Iraq and Syria that has been ongoing) Thoughts?

— Bret Baier (@BretBaier) October 15, 2014

Oh, we have thoughts. Lots of them. Take it away, Twitter!

@BretBaier you'll be happy to know that Inherent Resolve anagrams into "Reenthrone Evils"

Best anagrams of Inherent Resolve: Revelers None Hit. Enthrones Eviler. Relieve Hen Snort. Overseer Then Nil.

@morningmoneyben isn't that the name of the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie?

Did anyone look up the definitions of both “inherent” and “resolve” before approving that? No? Okay, glad we got that out of the way. #Smrt

Presumed courage! "@petermaercbs: From @CBSNews Correspondent David Martin: "Inherent Resolve" is the official name of anti-ISIS operation.”

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) October 15, 2014

Lifetime channel title RT @BenHowe: They’ve named the Iraq/Syria mission “Operation: Inherent Resolve.” Fire your naming person, Pentagon.

— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) October 15, 2014

"Inherent Resolve" sounds like the name of a failed 90s tech company not a military operation. Who came up with that?

— Ben White (@morningmoneyben) October 15, 2014

Inherent Resolve? Ripe for parody. #tcot

— Torrey M. Spears (@torreymspears) October 15, 2014

.@BretBaier I think they misspelled "incoherent".

— Screaming Eaglet (@ScreaminEaglet) October 15, 2014

"Inherent Resolve" sounds like a going problem…

— Chris Barnhart (@ChrisBarnhart) October 15, 2014

@whereishawkins A Joe Theismann infomercial.

Does the Pentagon have Arab Speaking advisers?There isn't 1 way you can translate "inherent resolve" without sounding tacky & out of context

— Joyce Karam (@Joyce_Karam) October 15, 2014

Obama officially names current military operation "Incoherent Resolve". Oh wait, sorry, that's "Inherent Resolve"

— Obama Toilet Paper (@ObamaTP) October 15, 2014

Nothing says "resolve" like waiting 2+ months to name your military operation, saying you won't name it "Inherent Resolve," then doing that.

— Rob Golan-Vilella (@RGolanVilella) October 15, 2014

Operation Inherent Resolve? That is comical. I like Operation Pinprick or Operation Cheerleaders. Furthermore..

— The 57th State ℅EF™ (@EF517_V2) October 15, 2014

Keep it coming!

On the flip side, perhaps the name is apropos:

@BretBaier It sounds like an oxymoron but not a good one. A muddle. Maybe it's a perfect fit.

— John Sexton (@verumserum) October 15, 2014

It’s funny, because it’s true.


The war vs. ISIS now has a name: ‘Operation Inherent Resolve’
