Ignoring Bosnia?

Once again in human history, we are witnessing the outrage of human suffering and indignity of the people of Bosnia. Ironically, the American people are not hearing the entire truth about the conflict or the horrifying torture inflicted upon these innocent people. President Bush is ready to issue Israel another $10 billion to build communities for Soviet immigrants; or when American interests are at jeopardy, such as in the Gulf war, Americans are ready to jump to defend human rights. But when thousands of innocent civilians are tortured, just in the name of ethnic cleansing, how can the events of the Holocaust replay themselves? Americans should take advantage of the opportunities they have and change the world situation to better the human race. Adam Mason, Los Angeles
