Arms embargo in the former Yugoslavia

Jeff Danziger's cartoon "Serbs Now Selling Arms to Somalis," Feb. 25, captures the essence of what we in the American Bosnian community have been trying to express for a year. The West has been forcing Bosnians and Croatians to fight almost unarmed against the Serbs. The Serbian military, on the other hand, has not been hurt by the arms embargo, and has been producing and importing weapons for its own needs with enough left over to export. President Clinton is abetting the inequity on the battlefield by letting the arms imbalance continue. Dropping food is not enough. Without weapons, the Bosnians are going to die anyway.
