NATO says its airstrikes have significantly degraded pro-government forces in Libya, while supporters of leader Moammar Gadhafi have rallied in the capital.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Thursday that allied forces had significantly hampered Gadhafi’s “war machine.”  He also predicted that sustained military and political pressure along with opposition support would eventually lead to the collapse of Gadhafi’s regime.

Now we hear that at Zawihah in Western Libya, the regime has  a port/jetty which is being used by large to imort fuel and export crude.

Nato vessels have just arrested one such tanker – the Cartergena.

Bomb it – the ship and the port!” 

Or is Nato a spent force?
