Keeping the peace worldwide

The author of the Opinion page article "European War, European Disunity," Dec. 30, draws the wrong conclusion when she writes: "Let us not forget, however, that Yugoslavia is primarily a European problem."

Civil war in Somalia has brought United States and United Nations involvement to that country because Africa is clearly unable to solve this human tragedy. In the same way, Europeans have failed to stop the bloodshed, torture, and other human rights violations in the former Yugoslavia. Let us recognize that the UN is beginning to play the role for which it was created.

Whether it be Cambodia, Iraq, Somalia, or Yugoslavia, the UN must be supported and encouraged to keep the peace worldwide, and the the US should play a major role as the remaining superpower. John A. Edwards, Arroyo Grande, Calif.
