Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Apparently the name "Odyssey Dawn = Operation Darrag Zumtak" in Arabic and is causing some humor in the Arabic speaking world.

Anybody got any idea?

There might not be a reason.  Most of the people I'm talking about are more than a little punch-drunk from the events over the past 32 days, so their "humor" threshold is a bit low, at the moment.

Kind of late for the dawn of this particular "odyssey"!
