How long would it take to have two of our fighter jets at just mach 1 from any close coordants to do a fly by at close quarters just to disrupt the attack followed by attack! If you were to straffe the street heads would have turned! Thus giving time for the deployment of further assets.
International incident does not apply here. We already bombed the crap out of Lybia for the same stinkin rebels that killed our Ambassador.
When Our personell are in harms way we don’t or I wouldn’t question Airspace or anyspace! Just go Kick ass and save lives and deal with it later and Kick their ass too if they had a problem with Airspace violation!
Your missing my point, the distance is about 650 kilometers not 600 miles. The two cities are closer than the author states by about 200 miles. The author is sloppy in his reporting.
