While officials are not specifying which U.S. military forces are a part of the coalition strike that is underway, it is apparent that Air Force fighter jets and pilots will be involved.

This military action is part of a coordinated action by coalition partners including the United States, Great Britain, and France, who passed a resolution in the United Nations Security Council authorizing the strikes in order to enable a no-fly-zone.

Seeking to avoid military attacks, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi called a cease-fire, which was quickly violated.
