Letter: Media aid for Serbs

Sir: Milosevic's war aims are very simple: to eradicate the Albanian population of Kosovo and then to hide the evidence. Our war aims should be equally simple: to stop this happening, then bring the guilty to trial. Yes, we have made mistakes and yes there will be tragic accidents but let us not forget exactly what is at stake: the future of an entire population.

Air strikes are not enough. A ground force must be sent in. It should be large, heavily armed and given orders to respond to any resistance with equal force. Such action is, I believe, justified and essential if we are to save those Kosovans left in Kosovo.

We could do nothing to save the Jews in 1939. Today we can save the Albanians.
