Sir: So the British government justifies the attack on Serbia on humanitarian grounds.

I take it therefore that we will soon see an attack on Turkey as the Turkish army continues to inflict misery and devastation on its own Kurdish people who are in the majority in South Eastern Turkey and who also seek autonomy. Of course we won't.

The fact is that our government has allowed itself to be led by the most vacuous American president that great nation has ever produced, when history should be teaching us of the dangers of unstructured involvement in the Balkans.

The Milosevic regime has wrought more destruction on the Serbian people than ever the Germanic nations of this century or the Ottomans of previous centuries managed to do. But the bombing the innocent cannot be the way forward.
