Letter: Caring for Kosovo

Sir: Thank goodness for David Aaronovitch ("Why do these decent folk find it so difficult to support the war?", 1 April). His article has cut through the muddled thinking of so many "decent folk" who would, by their inactivity, keep Milosevic and his henchmen going.

Would these decent folk like the ethnic cleansing to be performed a little more slowly and in manageable doses, so that their personal threshold of tolerance is never quite exceeded? Many of us, hopefully also "decent folk", recall the results of previous appeasement, not to mention what was happening in Kosovo well before the Nato action. And we accept that this is one of the very rare, and infinitely sad, occasions when a blind eye cannot be turned, and when resolute military action is the lesser of two evils.
