Evaluating the Situation in Yugoslavia

There is a holocaust going on in Croatia right now - a genocide of a defenseless people by the territory-seeking Yugoslav Army. Recently, I met a family of Croatian-Americans. They are literally speechless, shocked by the brutality of the Army.They describe, for example, the fate of Vukovar. A year ago it was a beautiful city of approximately 90,000, a majority of them Croatians. Then the city was selected for a territorial grab by the Army and the population told to leave. Our democratic government not only did not protest, but we are encouraging the genocide by supporting a strict arms embargo - assuring that Croatian civilians remain defenseless against the Army of Yugoslavia.
