However it's not a war as far as the international stage goes, the UN forces are only there to enforce a no-fly zone and to protect civilians. The missles are destroying anti-aircraft, airfields, and a handful of other targets used by Gaddafi.
Americans are launching planes. In fact, we are launchng a lot
of planes, which is why the US is commanding the operation. That aircraft carrier sitting in the sea next to Libya isn't just for show.
