Article in The Scotsman

I sent this e-mail to Mr. Stephen's address but it did not go through, so
I accessed The Scotsman's web site directly, where I was able to type my
letter again, which was received.

Dear Mr. Stephen,

Reading your article "Prosecutors to blame for their own headache"
regarding the ICTY prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic, I find some of your
statements disturbing. You wrote that "Milosevic had no official
link to Serb forces in what were separate countries, Croatia and Bosnia".
This is not correct. Milosevic ordered the Yugoslav army into Croatia and
later Bosnia not only because he did not recognize their declarations of
independence and secession from Yugoslavia, which was their right
according to the Yugoslav constitution of 1974, but to support with the
army and ammunition the rebellion of the ethnic Serbs and paramilitary,
in order to achieve the goal of "Greater Serbia". It certainly gave him
the green light when the United States Secretary of State Baker visited
and expressed the support for holding Yugoslavia together.

A great number of Serb documents seized in 1995 during Croatia's
liberation of the Serb occupied region of Krajina and Slavonija testify
to that fact. The three Serb officers indicted by the ICTY for the
destruction of Croatia's city of Vukovar and murder of over 200 hospital
patients in the fields of nearby Ovcara are Yugoslav officers from
Serbia. So were the officers and the admiral who were destroying
Dubrovnik and its entire region. There is no question that as the ICTY
prosecutors insist, Milosevic was the center of all the Balkan wars of
the 1990s.
