    Story 4396 DJ US/Major Aerial Campaign -2: Hundreds Of Sorties Planned
    WASHINGTON (AP)--The U.S. launched a long-awaited massive ariel campaign
    against Iraq on Friday, a U.S. official said.
    Hundreds of sorties were planned to target sites in Iraq on what the

    Story 4430 DJ US/Major Aerial Campaign-3: Scope Tied To Surrender Talks
    Another senior U.S. official said the escalation of the aerial campaign
    might not be as intense as originally planned because U.S. surrender talks
    with senior Iraqi officials were continuing.
    This official said Gen. Tommy Franks, the war's top commander, would "scale"
    the intensity of the bombardment in accordance with progress in the surrender
    talks. Within hours, however, it would be too late to reach a successful
    conclusion to the talks, and then, if no conclusion was reached, the bombing
    would go full-throttle, the official said.
    One U.S. official said the assault was ordered after U.S. forces met some
    resistance earlier in the day, raising concerns that the Iraqi high command
    was regaining control. In the first hours of the war, administration officials
    had detected evidence that the Iraqi leadership was in disarray.
    The Cable News Network reported from the Pentagon that virtually all U.S.
    Navy and Air Force assets would be used, including B-52 and stealth B-2
    bombers, planes based on aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean and Persian
    Gulf and cruise missiles fired from surface ships and submarines.
