Libya and airpower

In the desert environment, control of the air is a dominating position. Aircraft and missiles are far more effective here than just about anywhere else. This is also an ideal environment for mechanized units. All the side that has control of the air has to do is basically what we did in Iraq. Supply is heavy. For sustained combat, trucks are needed. They don’t stand a chance in the open desert. So just move and surround the areas of resistance. The battlefield is isolated and all you have to do is move in. Then move on to the next one.
