Sir: After more than two weeks of bombings against fixed targets in both Serbia and Kosovo the weight of attacks should now be aimed overwhelmingly at tanks and infantry formations in Kosovo. Attacking barracks, telephone exchanges and bridges in Serbia, with the risk of major loss of civilian life, is not sensible at this stage.

The fact that only one Nato plane has been shot down while there have been several thousand missions suggests that few of the attacks have been carried out at a very close range More aggressive tactics are probably needed for the air-only policy to succeed.
