Helicopters trailing thread and buttons?

Can you imagine this bird landing outside a village in Northern Iraq being off-loaded by smiling soldiers ...... delivering bundles of fabric, yarn, buttons, beads and notions?

It could happen. Army Major Art LaFlemme's Iraqi Bundles of Love Project (I.B.O.L.) is running out of storage room for the many boxes already flowing in ... and Ramadan just started! Art had to go to his commander to get "official approval" as the need to call for air support to deliver the bundles to nearby provinces is becoming more of reality by the day.

What is this I.B.O.L. thing?
