This illustrates why America should never enter into an alliance if we deem intervention is necessary. Isn't this what happened in Bosnia, sitting around arguing politics and procrastinating while genocide took place? I don't think Libya is even close to Bosnia, libya is a civil war and we picked a side. Now it seems homefront politics have softened Obama's resolve. God damn it, if he thought it was worth doing he should disregard the personal consequences and friggin do it. I think it was wrong but I'm not the President. If he was not sure that intervention was right he should have stayed the hell out of it. For Christ's sake, fish or cut bait and stop hiding behind this stupid NATO operation crap.
NATO's top military commander, U.S. Navy Adm. James Stavridis, has said there is a growing need for precision attack aircraft to avoid civilian casualties as Gadhafi's forces camouflage themselves and hide in populated areas to avoid Western airstrikes.
American officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the details, said the commander is looking for about eight to 10 additional planes.
The alliance is struggling to overcome differences over the Libya mission, with Britain and France seeking more strikes by other NATO nations, particularly the U.S. The U.S. says it sees no need to change what it calls a supporting role in the campaign — even though it has still been flying a third of the missions — and many other NATO nations have rules preventing them from striking Gadhafi's forces except in self-defense.
