Letter: Send in the troops

Sir: On Thursday you reported Mr Blair as saying we were taking military action "to damage Serb forces sufficiently to to prevent Milosevic from continuing to perpetuate his vile oppression against innocent Albanian civilians". On Saturday you headline: "Serbs retaliate with massacres".

How damaged will Serb military installations need to be before Serb police forces reduce their massacre rate to what it was before Nato started its air action? How many thousands will need to be massacred before we are told it has been necessary to send in ground troops? How long before we have pictures of body bags being unloaded in the UK?
