Letter: Kosovo: heading for a new catastrophe
Wednesday 31 March 1999
How many casualties will you then accept from Tito's heirs, whose terrorist murders of our troops will make the IRA look like lily-livered jelly-babies? How will you handle Russian and other "volunteers" who come to help them?
In any case, your excellent reporting from Kosovo shows that the atrocities are now led by Serb irregulars in ad hoc uniforms. Refugees talk of being driven out by knives, not tanks. Arkan is in Belgrade because the entire Serb population is determined to attack any Albanian they can find. They will delight in butchering our troops maintaining a protectorate. Nato has created a situation in which air power is useless.
Milosevic could not call off the Serb gangs even if he wanted to while Nato air attacks continue. He might or might not be able to do so if the attacks stop now. Nato has put him in a position of supreme authority.
Please engage your brain and think a little.
