    We now have the ability to assault them via aircraft with laser-guided munitions along with the ability to directly attack with overwhelming force.

    In addition, our landing craft are far better protected and much faster.
    they fixed that at Betio. got a Marine radio team to direct a destroyer to shoot at anything they wanted it to shoot at. used it to break out of the peir.
