Debate Over Fighting in Bosnia

April 27, 1993

The recent clashes between Muslim and Croat forces have demonstrated the reprehensible brutality that Croat military formations have displayed continually from the very beginning of this conflict. The junta in Zagreb will use any ugly means to further its pernicious onslaught in the Balkans, whether it be by bullying or the use of death squads.

The massacre in the village of Ahinici is not an isolated event. This has been ongoing since 1991, when Croats "ethnically cleansed" the Serb population of Slavonia, a large area east of Zagreb.

The message that the West has to send to the thugs in Zagreb should be clear: America cannot support Zagreb's aggressive militarism and fanatical nationalism.
