What would be the Japanese equivalent of the word operation, in the sense of a project or task?
Some examples would be:
- Operation Infiltrate-the-Castle
- Operation Human Shield (from South Park)
- Operation random cool name
In English this usage obviously comes from a military background, but what is the corresponding Japanese term? And more importantly, would you use this in the same tongue-in-cheek manner as in English, to glorify some task or project and make it sound exciting?
