Operation Enduring Freedom: 185 and Counting

As the Crowd beats dead US troops this weekend in an attack reminiscent of that in Somalia, it doesn't appear that Iron Hammer is hampering the growing insurgency.

Isn't English a marvelous language though. Take a root word like endure, add a little 3-letter suffix and marvel at the transformation in meaning. It remains to be seen how much more of 'this Operation' the administration will endure [I know, they said they're in it until it's finished and we should trust that] but we hold out hope that, the administration itself, will not be enduring.
