You take into account the cynicism shown by the Serbs in signing previous negotiations and ceasefires. Sadly, this is already proving to be the case with the Athens accords. There are reports today of the shelling of Muslim towns and that ethnic cleansing is continuing. This must be stopped or the accords will be as useless as the other bits of paper, and only the certainty of force being used against them will stop the Serbs from continuing this policy.
Surely, an early time-limit should now be fixed for Serbian withdrawal from all the territories they have taken by force, with an explicit ultimatum that military action will be taken against them if that promise is not kept by that date. The Serbs patently cannot be trusted and must be coerced into compliance if peace is to be a reality in this region.
