Yes, it’s not exactly the language of Henry V at Agincourt but it’s what the Ditherer-in-Chief DOES. Consider;
“In his meeting with Members of Congress today, sources tell ABC News, President Obama said he expected that the period that the US would be involved in heavy kinetic activity would be “days, not weeks,” after which he said the US would then take more of a supporting role.”
Over at HotAir, they call it right;
In order to get U.S. fingerprints off of this mission and reassure the public that it won’t be another endless adventure, he’ll let European and Arab air forces enforce the NFZ after we take out Qaddafi’s air defenses. A question: What happens if the war on the ground drags on and the Brits, French, etc, decide it’s not worth persevering? Will the USAF then return to “heavy kinetic activity” or is that the end of the mission?
Obama is clearly reluctant to entertain any kind of lead role for the US in the situation in North Africa and the Middle East.
