Swift - small bird that can fly very fast.

Swift - spacecraft on the lookout for gamma ray bursts from exploding stars which disintegrated violently a long time ago, near the start of the universe. Also see space and astronomy. (The name isn't an acronym - it's named after the bird, because of the fast automatic response of the spacecraft to turn and look at gamma ray bursts as soon as they are noticed).

Swift Car - Insurance company.

Jonathan Swift - Writer of Gulliver's Travels, a political satire making fun of things of the time (18th Century), but with curiously reoccurring themes (21st Century!).

Swift Office Supplies - Zoomy birdy supplies for the office.

It's typical for unpopular governments to regard everyone as a suspected terrorist. See other antiterrorist nonsense - was - hijacked by cybersquatters
