The suggestion to change the name of the war to "Operation Never Again" is a strategic move to reframe the narrative and keep the focus on the root cause of the conflict. The hashtag #OperationNeverAgain should be used on social media and in media coverage to reiterate the significance of the name and draw attention to the reasons behind the war.
