Recent developments coming now is that US has launched missile strikes in Libya in a move to destroy their air defence guns and missiles, clearing the way for European (read French) fighter aircrafts to enforce a no-fly zone to limit Gaddafi’s actions against the rebels.
For now US has plans of plundering all air defence equipments of Libya along the Mediterranean coast to allow the entrance of European aircrafts in the nation. When asked, US officials denied commenting on their future plans on this missions which Pentagon calls “Operation Odyssey Dawn”. But they told that for now they are only concentrating on providing support to French Air Force.
The officials said Libya’s air defence sites on the Mediterranean coast was attacked by Tomahawk sea launched cruise missile by US Navy. They further told that they also have an option of using Naval electronic war planes to attack their strategic sites.
