Sir: In your letters pages, many otherwise progressive people appear to be asking, "Who are they against?" rather than, "What do they represent?" when deciding where to stand on action against the Serbs.

Their world view is looking worryingly like a mirror image of that of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, when conservatives turned a blind eye to what various military dictatorships around the world were doing to their own people for no better reason than that they were anti- communist.

I am no fan of bombing people but I do think that we have to do better than "My enemy's enemy is my friend" when thinking about the current bout of ethnic cleansing in Europe.
