Letter: Laying down the law in Kosovo

Sir: The debate on the legality of Nato's action in Yugoslavia reminds me of the one that once took place over domestic violence.

There was a time when a man could beat his wife with more or less total impunity, and the police were very reluctant to intervene. Now we realise that domestic violence is simply violence, and shall not be tolerated.

It took a generation of refugee women fleeing their abusive partners to bring about this change in attitude.

Let us not wait a generation to deal with Milosevic.
