The hard cold fact of the matter is this. I'm going to use whatever asset I have to protect me and mine. I'm not gonna turn down a flight of Wart Hogs because they are loaded with UD rounds to wait on a flight of Apaches or Hornets with Hellfire or Maverick.
My first responsibilty is to my Marines and will use whatever asset is available to protect them. I don't have the time or inclination to ask a Pilot what type ordanance they have and decide if I want to use. That's a luxarey that you don't have when the Feces hit the fan
I understand you from a militar point of view. But I am a civilian, and I think in the people drinking from a depeted uranium infected water source or breahing from the air with DU particles.
