NATO the Impotent

What a headline:

NATO says it cannot stop shelling of Libyan city

TRIPOLI, Libya – NATO military commanders conceded Tuesday they are unable to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s shelling of the rebel-held city of Misrata, where hospitals are overwhelmed with casualties, while Britain said it will dispatch senior military officers to advise the opposition.

Misrata, Libya’s third-largest city, has been under siege for nearly two months, with rebels holding on to seaside positions in the port area. In recent days, Libyan troops have pounded the city with shells and rockets.

NATO can’t take out a couple of howitzers? How the hell was it supposed to have stopped a dozen Soviet motor rifle divisions screaming through Bavaria?
