Acting Secretary of State Lawrence S. Eagleburger warned Saturday that Serbian repression of the Muslim majority in the province of Kosovo is likely to touch off a broad Balkans war that could draw international forces, with U.S. support, into the conflict. Eagleburger said that Serbian efforts to carry out "ethnic cleansing" in Kosovo of Albanian Muslims--who make up 90% of the province's population--would be "qualitatively different" from the Serbian massacres in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The future of U.S. peacekeeping efforts in the Balkans emerged Saturday as a major point of debate in the presidential campaign. Advisors to George W. Bush said the Texas governor wants European powers to manage the NATO mission there. Vice President Al Gore reacted to that assertion by saying the proposal "demonstrates a lack of judgment and a misunderstanding of history." Bush has long criticized Clinton administration decisions on when and whether to send U.S.

Frustrated by his allies' objections to military action in Bosnia-Herzegovina, President Clinton is wrestling again with the issue of how to stop the war in Bosnia. But this time, in an unusual move for a chief executive, he is doing much of his deliberating in public. Clinton still hopes to persuade Britain, France and other nations to support his proposal to lift the international arms embargo on Bosnia and launch air strikes against Serbian military positions there, aides said.
