Cartoon Doesn't Help Bosnia's Volatile State
Ordinarily I get great enjoyment, not to mention a chuckle or two, from Jeff Danziger's cartoons. But, alas, I must take strong exception to the cartoon that appeared May 24, depicting the Euro-American powers as accomplices to the Serbs. If we've learned nothing else in the past half century, it's the frustration, danger, and humiliation risked by sticking our noses into someone else's conflict, on their territory, where the boundaries are vague. Vietnam, Somalia, and Cuba have taught us that. To call these nations "accomplices" for exercising great caution in such a case is a bit unreasonable.
