God Damn, a Shooting War In Libya

Cruise missile strike.

In the strikes, 112 Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired at more than 20 coastal targets to clear the way for air patrols to ground Libya's air force.

While U.S. defense officials cautioned that it was too early to fully gauge the impact of the onslaught, the official said that given the precision targeting of the Navy's cruise missiles, they felt that Libya's air defenses suffered a good deal of damage.

The Golfer in Chief weighed in. ""We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy," he said in Brasilia.

We cannot stand by idly while we figure out how to deploy these thingys on the big board.
