Why Repeat History in Bosnia?

The article ``Why Only US Can Win Peace,'' Dec. 2, is a rare act of journalistic courage. It points out, once and for all, who is at fault in Bosnia. The fault is with ourselves. As a nation, we love to wring our hands over horrors like the Holocaust and make great speeches about how we should never let it happen again. Well, it has happened again. And we refuse to act now, just as we refused to act 50 years ago. We should be ashamed of ourselves. Jay Putt, Hauppauge, N.Y.
