Letter: Send in the troops

Sir: I am utterly appalled by the double standards of the Anglo- American-led United Nations Security Council in their contrasting policies regarding Saddam Hussein and Slobodan Milosevic. They appear arrogantly contra-suggestible.

On the one hand, where world opinion wants sanctions against Iraq lifted, they drop bombs on innocent Iraqis; and on the other hand, where world opinion demands an end to the murder and mutilation of innocent Albanians in Kosovo, they turn the other cheek.
