Evaluating the Situation in Yugoslavia

There are no ethnically pure borders in Europe, as the editorial "The Fall of Vukovar," Nov. 20, suggests. If the European and world communities allow Serbian grabbing of Croatian land it will have unforeseen consequences in post World War II Europe.Serbia itself is only 60 percent ethnically pure. What about the other minorities (Croatian, Hungarian, Albanian, Romanian, etc.) in Serbia now? The Croatian people are not a tribe. They have their nation, democratically elected government, and they voted to secede from Serbian dominated Yugoslavia. The mere presence of the Serbian army on Croatian territory is in violation of the cease-fire. Dragan Ivkovic, Melrose Park, Ill.
