Adios, Muammar

It appears that Muammar Gaddafi's dictatorship in Libya is at an end. This individual directed terrorist activities including the destruction of two civilian airplanes carrying numerous passengers. We are glad to see him go and hope that he soon receives his deserved punishment.

Details of how air was controlled over Libya are murky but it appears that the US and NATO forces worked very well with the rebels on the ground. Congratulations to all concerned.

My with and I flew Space A Air to Souda Bay this past April. The Libyan effort was underway and our fighter bombers were leaving the base to bomb Libya and return. It was somewhat surreal - we were in a war that only the pilots were experiencing. There were several NATO countries and the US providing assets.

At any rate their were no US casualties. And a brutal dictator is on his way out. A job well done.

Congratulations and Semper Fi
