Letters: A Serb baffled

Sir: Graham Perkins states that the Croats "fought a brilliant six-day campaign to retake the occupied lands of the Krajina" (letter, 14 April). Would he describe the ethnic Albanians as "occupying" Kosovo ? The Croats ethnically cleansed Krajina of about 200,000 Serbs whilst US aircraft bombed Serb air defences. There was no outcry for air strikes against Tudjman's fascist campaign.

The reason Serbs were fighting in the first place was because Croatia insisted Krajina become part of an "independent" Croatia using the borders created by Pavelic and Hitler in 1941. If Mr Perkins researches the history of that era he may come to realise why no Serb wants to live in a fascist Croatia ever again.
