Never mind Tripoli

Surely the daily attacks on Tripoli can be halted, at least temporarily so that the continuing onslaught on Misrata can be tackled by Nato jets, working in conjuction with the drones.

Even if the Apaches can only operate at night, they could still inflict damage on the anti-Gadiffi positions.

Residents of Misrata hoped for just such an ending last week, when Nato leafleted government lines around the city with lurid pictures of Apache helicopters and warning of dire retribution if the bombardment continued.

Since then, the bombardment has only intensified. On the streets of the shell-shattered city, journalists are now asked at regular intervals by the frightened populace: “Where is Nato?”.

Where indeed?
