Operation: Christmas

Ah! C-Day came and gone. Another year of Yuletide blitz! Wired delved into the mysterious, secretive world of Santa. They posted an image of what it would take to Launch "Operation Christmas".

From Spy Satellites keeping tabs on who was naughty and who was nice, to secret manufacturing plants all over China and Eastern Europe to hedge funds at 20% to keep the Christmas cheer long and flowing--- a near US$30 Billion dollar enterprise.

The best part of course is that it all begins with Command and Control. At the heart of the North Pole, as every Data Center specialist knows, with running all that compute horsepower, it's all about the cool. The Arctic has that in spades. And that's why Santa keeps his secret base up there.

Being neighbors with Superman also helps keep the bad people out.

The air drops, the shipping lanes, the ground forces... invasion plan for C-Day is my kind of OP!

Wished i helped plan it all. tsk.
