At the Senate Armed Services Commitee Hearings today, McCain
said that the US was playing the game of "whack-a-mole" refering to the fact that when US forces
take over one town, the enemy surfaces in another. Never heard of that game.

Moles pop up from the holes at random, and you try to hit them with the hammer.
