The West's `Realistic' Policy on Bosnia?

As you put it nicely in your editorial ``Bosnia and `Realism', '' Feb. 23, ``realism'' of the United States policy in Bosnia is a farce. People responsible for genocide and war crimes are still smiling on TV.

Borders changed by ethnic cleansing, rape, destruction, and fascism are crimes against humanity. The West's indecisiveness and misrepresentation of a real problem (Serbian aggression) makes it an accomplice in that crime.

As the Russians move west of the River Drina (posing as ``UN troops'') into the sphere of the West's influence (if one's yardstick is the postwar Yalta Conference), they may claim victory in a conflict in which 250,000 people were killed. As Stalin put it, ``Kill one person, it's a tragedy; kill a million, it's a statistic.'' Dragon Ivkovic, Oak Brook, Ill.
