Baker-Hamilton Equals Doug & Dinsdale

You may remember the Monty Python sketch about The Pirhana Brothers, Doug and Dinsdale
At the age of fifteen Doug and Dinsdale started attending the Ernest Pythagoras Primary School in Clerkenwell. When the Piranhas left school they were called up but were found by an Army Board to be too unstable even for National Service. Denied the opportunity to use their talents in the service of their country, they began to operate what they called 'The Operation'... They would select a victim and then threaten to beat him up if he paid the so-called protection money. Four months later they started another operation which the called 'The Other Operation'. In this racket they selected another victim and threatened not to beat him up if he didn't pay them. One month later they hit upon 'The Other Other Operation'. In this the victim was threatened that if he didn't pay them, they would beat him up. This for the Piranha brothers was the turning point.

The Operation was to not threaten our enemies.
The Other Operation in the Middle-East, apparently, is to threaten our allies. Yeah, that'll work.
Bring on the Other Other Operation. Faster, please.
