LETTER : Forgotten shame

Sir: I am surprised never to have seen in any British media what seems to me the best reason not to vote for John Major.

From 1992 to 1995 the worst and most numerous atrocities Europe has known since the Second World War happened in former Yugoslavia, notably in Bosnia. It is not an exaggeration to say that several Dunblanes were happening each day there. And concentration camps have been functioning before the world's eyes since 1992.

Europe's strongest military powers, Mitterrand's France and Major's UK, knew this better than anybody. They clearly had the technical means to stop these dreadful sufferings, whatever the White House's opinion. They have done nothing.
