Tactical shift or escalation?

The defence minister told parliament today that the use of helicopters in Libya would not represent an escalation of the mission, but only a "tactical shift" to improve the ability to strike moving targets more precisely.

Hmm.

"improve the ability to strike moving targets more precisely."

But they never attack the moving tanks etc. of the 'rebels'.

More chance of hitting Gaddaffi with a helicopter than a Jet Fighter ? or is that just me being cynical

What's wrong with that, when he had the overwhelming force in his favour he said he would go house to house and show them no mercy!

A war is still a war whatever the excuse and the sooner it is bought to an end the better. Better to go all out now than let it drag on for years and years. We should be glad that our armed forces don`t have to fight with one arm tied behind their backs as has happened so many times in the past.

i'm not saying anything is wrong with it take out the problem war over.

But it would go beyond the remit layed down by the UN enforce no fly zone and protect Civilians if we start going beyond that is their any point to the UN
