Despite tough new measures to plug leaks in the U.N. sanctions against Serb-run Yugoslavia, neither Serbian political moderates who are struggling to restore the peace nor Western governments monitoring the embargo believe the effort will soon be successful. On the contrary, they warn, the West's drive to starve warmongers into submission could have the reverse effect of strengthening the hand of extremists who are trying to persuade Serbs that they are the targets of a global conspiracy.

The NATO allies agreed in principle Wednesday to help enforce the U.N.-authorized naval blockade of Yugoslavia but put off a decision on a specific commitment of forces for at least two days. NATO's governing council--ambassadors to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization from the 16 member nations--will meet again Friday, after military planners have had time to draw up a proposal.

The Security Council on Monday toughened its embargo by authorizing a naval blockade against Serbia. The action came amid reports that scores of trucks and boats are still violating U.N. sanctions by crossing into Serbia and Montenegro with gasoline and other badly needed supplies. The 15-member council voted 13 to 0, with 2 abstentions, for the blockade of the Adriatic Sea and the Danube River. Under the resolution, vessels suspected of carrying contraband may be stopped and searched.

Punishing a European state for the first time in U.N. history, the Security Council on Saturday imposed an oil embargo and a host of other sanctions on Serbian-led Yugoslavia for its bloody and shocking aggression against Bosnia-Herzegovina. By their speeches and their votes, members of the 15-member council made it clear that they were infuriated by the murder of civilians and the flight of refugees on a scale not seen in Europe since the end of World War II.
