(E) Cyrus Vance - letters@nytimes.com needed
Op-edWe need 30 letters to The New York Times.Click Here: Crown Home PageDear Nenad:The January 13, 2001, New York Times article on passing of Cyrus Vance is once again forgery of history in the part of his dealings with Croatia. For that reason it deserves to be lauded on your network. His role in negotiations in dissolution of SFR Yugoslavia was nearsighted, and outright pro-Serbian. United Nations peace keeping force did not "disarm warring militias", as said article stated, but rather it had helped Serbia to easier control occupied territories within Croatia. Mr. Vance was personally responsible for executions of wounded defenders in The Vukovar Hospital, after the Serbian militia and Yugoslav Army overrun it in November 1991. For that role alone he should have been indicted by ICTY in the Haag, as coconspirator in the slaughter of defenseless civilians and wounded defenders. I for one cannot forget the picture of a young girl begging Mr. Vance to help, and he only kept smiling. (as seen on HRTV). Would be wise to send as many protest letters to The New York Times as possible. I am sending this one, somewhat changed. Best regards, DocMaric@aol.comBellow is the only paragraph related to Mr. Vance's engagement with Croatia:"After his return to private practice, Mr. Vance was repeatedly called back to the public arena to use his quiet negotiating skills on some of the bloodiest conflicts of the 1980's and 1990's: in the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia; in South Africa; and in a disintegrating Yugoslavia. There, he successfully negotiated a cease-fire in Croatia to allow a United Nations peacekeeping force to enter and disarm warring militias." Subj: RE: DEATH OF CYRUS R. VANCE Date: Sunday, January 13, 2002 10:30:38 PMFrom: DocMaricTo: letters@nytimes.comDear Editor:The article on passing of Cyrus Vance is once again forgery of history in the part of his dealings with Croatia. It was only one sentence, and it was wrong.For that reason it deserves to be corrected. His role in negotiations in dissolution of SFR Yugoslavia was one-sided, outright pro-Serbian. United Nations peace keeping force did not "disarm warring militias", as the article stated, but rather it had helped Serbia to easier control occupied territories within Croatia and Bosnia for four years. Mr. Vance was personally responsible for executions of wounded defenders in The Vukovar Hospital, after the Serbian militia and Yugoslav Army overrun it on November 19, 1991. For his role in Vukovar alone he should have been indicted by ICTY in the Haag, as coconspirator in the slaughter of defenseless civilians and wounded defenders. I for one cannot forget the picture of a young girl begging Mr. Vance to help, and he only kept smiling. (as seen on TV documentary). DocMaric@aol.comRade Marich, M.
