Western Involvement and the Rights of Bosnian Muslims

Recent Monitor editorials seem to urge direct and immediate United States military involvement in Yugoslavia. This is extremely bad advice.

The US need not become isolationist, but it must allow Europe to take the lead in European affairs. With the demise of the Soviet Union, we have an opportunity to utilize the United Nations mechanism for peacekeeping and require other countries, more directly affected by a particular conflict, to contribute on a basis proportionate to their respective involvement. To suggest surgical air strikes by US air power is irresponsible and could give us another Vietnam - which the media constantly deplore. David J. Reese, Reno, Nev.
