What forces deployed to Benghazi? From where? It's been pretty well established that no forces could've made it on time. Did you want a carrier task force stationed off Libya to protect the US cultural centre in Benghazi IN CASE it was attacked? Is that what you're trying to say?<quoted text>
If that were the case, why were not forces deployed to Ben Ghazi?
Oh, where did the A-6s, A-7s and F?A-18 come from? Hint, THREE U.S. aircraft carriers (USS Saratoga, USS America and USS Coral Sea)
Oh, we had 12 operation combat carriers and one training carrier in 1986.
You didn't need the carriers to air bomb Libya. Canada, France and the UK all operated their missions from mainland Europe, no carriers. And incidentally, just for the record, it was a stupid mission
