Double or quit

Just one more push. The cry of the generals throughout the ages. Give them more troops or more munitions and they will win the war. The Independent reports:

The head of Britain's military forces wants to widen the range of targets for Nato aircraft in Libya in an attempt to break the stalemate on the ground.
General Sir David Richards is said to believe Muammar Gaddafi may manage to cling to power unless attacks are carried out against the infrastructure propping up his regime.

In the words of the song, when will they ever learn?
