So much for that Hopey/Changey Thing. On President Obama’s orders, U.S. Forces attacked Libya today in coordination with NATO forces. In an historic first FRENCH aircraft (Rafale and Mirage 2000) led the attack on Libyan air defenses. The British Royal Air Force attacked with Tornado Fighter Bombers. The Americans wussed out by firing 114 Tomahawk missiles (BGM-109C and RGM-109E). Pentagon spokesmen announced that U.S. Forces won’t use expensive stuff like F-22 Raptors or B-2 Spirits until it’s not so dangerous in Libyan air space.
Wouldn’t be ironic if Obama orders the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) to go to war?*- Okay it’s really called ” Operation Odyssey Dawn”. Which is also a direct to video Jean-Claude Van Damme movie made in 1989.
