Your assets are a 155mm battery, a Plt of 81mm mortars and you have two FA18's on station for 30 minutes.
Come on you are taking fire. Your people are being hurt. What do you do Stud?

I fail to see your point. What do you mean?
This is decision making. And do you know that in commerce schools they teach Sun Tzu's work?
And look at the terms they use in everyday's life. You join a corporation, and they invite you to a "strategy meeting". And you hear your boss say "let's try a different tactic". And you receive an "intelligence report" on the situation "on the field". Oops, there was an accident, and they send you a "casualty report". And damn, the driver and the loader (transport vehicle) were wounded. They cant join their unit for two months. You call an agency to ask for "contractors" to replace them on the spot. They are expensive, but you cant afford to lose a vehicle. And you send someone to negotiate with the client as he is not happy as the delivery cant be completed on time...
That's the civilian life sir!
And I could take an example with a hospital too... But I dont really have experience in this domain... Life and death. Money and human lives.
Same set of skills. Project management.
You can put ANYTHING in "project management". From walking on the moon, to the little girl selling orange juice.

Accidents happen. Another reason to scale back the air strikes. As for taking out radar installations, SAM sites and some command and control facilities, they are a part of taking control of the skies over Libya.
