Re: "Low Turnout Again Foils Serbia Election" (Dec 9) The media keeps referring to Yugoslavia's president Kostunica as "a moderate nationalist with pro-democratic views". They are ignoring that during his campaign speeches he said that the part of Bosnia-Herzegovina given by the Dayton Agreement to the Bosnian Serb entity is "only a temporary situation, as it will eventually be part of Serbia" - in other words, taken away from the sovereign country of Bosnia Herzegovina. Does that sound like a "moderate nationalist"? Does this national leader sound like a person committed to peace with his neighbors? "Moderate" - I don't think so! Nothing much has changed, Serbs will always try to take over other people's lands.
