Well, if you want to play Custer why not. BTW, they Indians had no manpads and RPGs. I don’t think if Marines are about to absorb a hundred casualties for nothing.

RPGs? Have you ever been to an airshow? It is hard to point a camera at those things. You don't even know they are coming until ordnance has already hit you. Hitting a jet with an RPG would be a miracle shot.

The people in charge knew it would be easier to deal with dead Americans than dead Libyans who would be labeled "civilians" in any case. So they sat on their thumbs and waited for it to be over.

You nailed it and it bears repeating!
