Sir: "We never went to war for the return of [Kosovo] refugees," writes Robert Fisk (Comment, 5 June). He is, of course, right. The myth was propagated for Nato's convenience, immediately after the first bombs had fallen on Belgrade.

The present "victory" over Serbia, might very well be turned upside down with the KLA, greatly strengthened, "ethnically cleansing" the Serbian villagers. But what is Nato's real objective in this war? Is it not to weaken Russia by crushing her only ally left in Europe? Is it not to consolidate eastern Europe, Turkey and Israel, within a Greater Europe?
