I do not mean just the destruction by the coalition although that will be plenty. Complicated communications equipment, his complete air forces, ammunition, much supplied originally by the coalition. But the rebels and Gadaffi are ruining cities. Every time they change hands they are subject to barrages by both sides Just look at any TV clips inside cities that change hands. By not attempting even for force a cease fire on both sides the coalition is ensuring the destruction keeps on going and going unless they can beat Gadaffi into submission. Opposition trucks are hit only by accident by NATO so far.

Cheers, ken

¿Examples? I haven´t seen a single report highlighting that civilian infrastructure has been a target of attacks as happened in other wars where the electrical grid, water and bridges were targets.

¿So what are you expecting to be "rebuilt" besides Gaddafi´s tanks and opposition´s trucks?
