According to the New York Times (5/16/11), Gen. Sir David Richards, ‘Britain’s top military commander,’ is proposing that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) target Libyan ‘infrastructure,’ including electrical power grids and fuel dumps, in government held areas.
Frustrated by the two-month old stalemate, Gen. Richards told the Times that ‘The vice is closing on [Muammar el-] Qaddadi, but we need to increase the pressure further through more intense military activity.’ The British are playing a major role in the bombing campaign, and Gen. Richards was in Naples, the command center for the war in Libya, when he talked with the Times.
The Times went on to write, ‘The General suggested that NATO should be freed from restraints that precluded attacking infrastructure targets.’
