Letter: Bosnia's 'worst single atrocity'

Sir: Today 'the worst single atrocity of the war in Bosnia' is reported to have been inflicted on the citizens of Sarajevo. If precedent is followed, the reaction of the British government will be to continue leading the movement to deny the Bosnians arms to defend themselves - and perhaps to send some more bereavement counsellors.

I wonder with what words Churchill would have expressed the feelings of the British people if that had been the response of the outside world to our predicament after Dunkirk?

Yours faithfully,
