Sat Shoot-Down Logo Revealed!

 Here's a copy of the military's logo for last week's satellite-shooting operation.  Behold!  You decide.

Sure, the military may be calling the effort "Operation Burnt Frost," in public.  But, as this logo reveals, there's a different monicker, behind closed doors.  Amazingly, the armed forces appeared to have crowdsourced the name of the operation to... all of you.

Last week, we had a little contest, to name the sat-blasting project.  Over 500 possible titles were submitted.  Two of the four leading vote-getters made it to this August emblem.  So congrats, KnuckleDragger and Albert Sunseri, for your noble contribution to this historic effort.

"The top-rated names are so funny, I had to combine" a few, the satirical logo-maker tells DANGER ROOM.  Here's "the NRO patch that was my original inspiration."
