Letter: Nato terror raids

Click to follow
Sir: In accusing those who oppose Nato's bombing of Yugoslavia of being the same as those who appeased Hitler in the 1930s, Tony Blair has consistently misunderstood the fact that an anti-bombing campaign can in no way be equated with a pro-ethnic cleansing campaign. Those who protest against the bombing of Yugoslavia, such as myself, are merely outraged at the breaking of international law and contravention of the UN charter.

Nato's requirement that its ground troops be allowed into Kosovo is understandably unacceptable to Serbia, just as the suggestion of a foreign intervention force in Northern Ireland would be unacceptable to Mr Blair's government. Are we prepared to wage an all-out war against Serbia for its non-compliance with this demand? If so, Mr Blair would do well to remember what happened to the great powers that declared war on Serbia in 1914.
