The United Nations' priority

Regarding the editorials "Boutros-Ghali's Point" and "Saddam's Jujitsu," July 29: Civil war (a contradiction in terms) is a major cause of the situation in the Horn of Africa involving millions of people on the verge of starvation. Civil war has already caused a million refugees in the Balkan peninsula. Under these circumstances one may question the priorities of the United States government when it so strongly backs United Nations peace-keeping efforts in Iraq while giving only weak support to UN effort s in other areas involving so many more people. Andre DuChateau, Brookline, Mass.
