Hey Extropian Wordsmiths!

Put your wordsmithing skills into high gear to name this operation
that the US government is implementing to shoot down a satellite. Yes,
that's right... after criticizing China that their shooting exercise
last year triggered an inevitable cascade of debris,
the US government is going to join the Fun ! Yippee!

Ahem. Sorry.

The Wired contest to name this rogue satellite operation, therefore,
beckoned, and I couldn't resist. However, my wordsmithing skills are not
as finely-honed as some here.  I tried think of a clever way to use
"Stay the Course" or some other Bush-ism, but couldn't get the words to
drip, ooze and slither across the page, so I  used  a  jingle instead.
It's still not slithering though, and I'm sure you can do better!

(mine is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down on the list.. there are a huge
number of entries!)

Have fun!
