Greek Tragedy

NATO has announced an expansion of its month-old offensive against entrenched and tenacious Taliban fighters and assorted al Qaeda militants in Afghanistan.

It's called Operation Achilles (hopefully theirs and not ours...) and I think they were right to draw on Greek myth for their inspiration. I'm just worried they went for the wrong mythical hero. Somehow, Operation Sisyphus has more of a realistic ring to it.

In the immortal words of Principle Skinner: Prove me wrong, children; prove me wrong.
