    It still seems a bit unclear to me. Thank you.

    So far we have created the need for at least 75 million dollar order to Raytheon to replace the Tomohawks we blew up. We have REALLY destabilized North African oil deliveries ensuring the $4 Gas at the pump will no doubt hit $5 soon.

    Thank you for telling me what we've done. But that really doesn't tell me what our objectives there are.

    None.

    The only objectives are useless waste of resources.

    Shoot down aircraft, destroy anti-aircraft installments.

    And don't kill Gaddafi.

    Seriously, he's the only one that gets to live no matter what.

    Unless by some miracle the rebels pull off a win.

    We have no plan or strategy to win.

    To get rid of the old, stale Tomahawk missiles that have been sitting on the shelves for years, and replace them with fresh new stock.

    Twofold

    1. To give the appearance that the leadership in the US is doing something, not just dithering between alternatives.

    2. Already noted, the desire to create new spending at various defense contractors, thus bringing home some bacon to the homefolks.
