Letter: Choices facing Nato

Sir: It is easy for The Independent and its readers to castigate Nato and the politicians for the tragedy in Kosovo. May I suggest the real blame lies nearer home?

Not until now has the public been sufficiently outraged to send in ground forces. Politicians are sensitive to the public mood. To send in the troops to "sort out" Milosevic means casualties. Did any of us care enough about the Albanians, or indeed any of the other people mentioned in Robert Fisk's article ("We have lost this foolish war", 5 April), to risk the lives of "our boys"?
