...And seriously, whats with all the funky codenames
It's basic spy fiction, it's everywhere within that genre.

It does feel weird in that here it's used just for the US, whereas in spy fiction, you'll have code names anywhere. Done like in TAMNI, it gives me an impression of mockery...

In real life, several governments use loads of code names... well, mainly US, Russia and European countries... dunno about Asian countries...
