Does anyone else think it's strange that the U.S. military would name one of its bombs after Saddam Hussein's famous phrase: "mother of all battles"? Hussein said those words as a boast that Iraqi forces would somehow fend off the U.S.-led coalition in the 1991 Gulf War.

It turned out to be an empty threat, full of bluster with little real power behind it. So let's name one of our big bombs after it.
